The Clement EB20 Steel Window Technical Specification
Clement EB20 windows have been created for fenestration projects where a traditional steel window appearance is required, replicating the appearance of original or existing windows while simultaneously providing all the advantages of 21st century technology.
EB20 windows are manufactured with exceptionally slim frames. The 20mm insulated glass units mean that the largest possible glazed area is provided, thereby optimising solar gain and saving energy through reduced use of artificial lighting. A most versatile and popular product, EB20 windows are appropriate for both refurbishment and new build projects. The 20mm glass offers an increased ‘shadow line’ which can be required for some heritage projects.
Part L Regulations
EB20 windows comply with Part L of UK Building Regulations (April 2016), and meet an Window Energy Rating (WER) of “C”.
Made to suit your individual requirements EB20 windows are generally manufactured in accordance with BS 6510:2010 specifications for hot rolled steel windows. The mild steel sections used for Clement window and door frames are precision rolled in Switzerland using only recycled steel to suit Clement’s unique profiles and tolerances. All frames and ancillary profiles are hot dip galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 and available with a factory applied polyester powder coating to BS EN ISO 13438 from the RAL colour range, exceeding the minimum paint thickness over the zinc of 60 microns.
Frames are manufactured from hot rolled mild steel profiles with corner joints mitred, welded and dressed square and flat. Small panes can be formed with T glazing bars whose ends are tenon riveted and/or welded to the frame and cross joints are interlocked and welded with rigid joints. Composite windows can be assembled by connecting windows horizontally and/or vertically with mullions and/or transoms of hot rolled slim steel profiles. Box sections are available as tubes or as box mullions which can be either hot rolled or manufactured from sheet steel. Pressed metal cills are available in a choice of profiles. Trickle vents can be fitted in accordance with Part F of the Building Regulations.
The EB20 range of windows is available with multi point locking to BS 7950 or traditional single point locking and other security devices if required.
EB20 windows can be fitted into timber subframes, or direct to brickwork, concrete or stone. Windows are installed using fixing lugs or stainless steel screws.
EB20 can be supplied if required with various glazing options, from both inside or outside including:
- Clear glazing
- Georgian bars: using our G+ welded bar system; an applied bar system in a horizontal or vertical pattern
- Genuine T bars
- Leaded lights, using real lead that is soldered by hand in a diamond or rectangular pattern in variable widths of lead.
Combinations of fixed lights, top hung, side hung and bottom hung windows are available as well as single and double doors in both ‘open in’ and ‘open out’ configurations.
EB20 windows are double glazed with high performance 20mm insulating glass units. The specification includes the latest glazing technology, a 4mm inner pane, 12mm cavity with krypton gas fill and a 4mm outer pane. This configuration achieves a superior performance with a centre pane “U” value of 1.1W/m²K. The panes are joined using special Warm Edge spacers.
In accordance with Glass & Glazing Federation best practice, Clement steel windows are generally factory glazed, however, our concealed fixings mean that fixed light windows need to be glazed on site after the frames have been installed. Glazing beads are made of aluminium.
EB20 windows can be supplied with semi, round or gothic style heads, and ‘curved on plan’.
Dimensions (Provided for guidance purposes only)
Windows (both individual and composite panels) and doors are made to measure. Individual window and door sizes can be supplied within the limits shown in the table below. Sizes outside these limits may be considered after consultation with one of our sales consultants.
Nominal profile width 36mm
- Fixed lights < 36mm
- Opening casement frame < 36mm
- Opening casement and mullion < 51mm
Sealant or glasket width is 2mm, thus the overall typical sight line for fixed light (perimeter) frame, inclusive of sealants, is 38mm.
|WINDOWS||Min (mm)||Max (mm)||Min (mm)||Max (mm)||Max (mm)|
The combination of width and height is to be such that the window perimeter does not exceed the maximum in the table, and that the ratio of lesser to greater dimension does not exceed 1:8 when using 4mm glass.
The average Sound Reduction Index (SRI) of a single glazed unit is approximately 30 dB, but this varies with window type, size and glass thickness.
Air permeability: Class 4
