The windows you choose can say a lot about your property – in terms of defining the character, style and heritage of the building itself, but also the positioning and layout of your interior spaces and how much natural light they receive.
Steel is a remarkably durable material that has been used to create strong and elegant windows for centuries, which means that it lends itself well to both the renovation of historic and Listed Buildings and the construction of new builds.
In this blog we take a closer look at some of the most prominent architectural eras to help you decide the right style of steel windows for your home.
Clement are proud to have sponsored the Small Project of the Year (up to £50m) at this year’s Building Awards. This is the fourth consecutive year that the company have sponsored this award.
Following on from our recent blog on creating a workspace that harnesses a positive atmosphere and contributes to productivity, we’re taking a closer look this month at some of the top interior design aspects that can help to stimulate just such an environment.
We were delighted that Bert & May’s stand at Decorex featured our stunning steel door screen!
Decorex International is Europe’s leading event for interior design professionals. This year’s show took place at Olympia between 6th and 9th October.
In today’s modern workplace, the physical working environment is recognised as a factor in helping to reduce workplace stress and a key contributor to a positive culture, as employees that like their surroundings feel happier, more engaged and more productive. So it makes sense that office interior design should consider more than just aesthetically pleasing components and focus on creating a workspace that actually increases wellbeing and encourages productivity.
Here we take a look at some of the key considerations when planning your organisation’s working environment and why your windows should play a big part.

Is it time to give your home a bit of an update before the winter months? Here we examine some of the key design and interior trends to look out for this Autumn/Winter 2019.
The Clement Windows Group is delighted to be involved in this year’s Haslemere Hounds project.
Following hot on the heels of 2017’s Haslemere Hogs and 2018’s Haslemere Hares, this regional initiative sees local artists, schools and companies decorating over 100 fibreglass hounds, which are then displayed throughout the town between May and September.
The hounds are then sold off, with the proceeds going to a variety of charities and good causes. To date, more than £85,000 has been raised!
Although the hot and humid summer months are when you’re least likely to consider the thermal efficiency of your windows, now is in fact the perfect time to think about winter proofing your windows for the colder spells ahead, particularly if they are run-down, draughty and in need of replacement.
Here are some of the key reasons you should consider replacing your windows in time for winter in order to weather proof your home.
Steel windows have traditionally been a feature of many old buildings, steel having been the material of choice for decades due to its inherent strength and security. As fenestration techniques have evolved over the years, meaning steel can be fashioned into more elegant and varied shapes and designs, more homeowners have chosen steel windows to complement the traditional features of their period homes or, as in the case of on trend internal steel screens, to add a contemporary edge to a once conventional space.
The decision to install new steel windows or contemporary steel screens into your home is a big one, requiring plenty of thought and planning. The end result is a dramatic transformation that brings better insulation and security and plenty of light to your property. But it’s not often that we think about the origins of these beautiful metal windows or how they came to be. Here we outline a brief history of how steel windows are made and look at their journey from the factory to your home.
We recently covered some of the common misconceptions people have about steel in one of our blogs. One area we discussed was the thermal efficiency of steel windows and we explained that we only use the best glass units, teamed with thermal barriers and weatherproofing, in order to maximise your window’s performance and keep energy bills down, ultimately helping you to exercise a more sustainable way of living. But you might not be aware how sustainable steel is as a raw material is too.
Here are some of the reasons why opting for steel windows, doors or screens in your home really is a sustainable decision.
