The right steel windows for your architectural style?

December 10th, 2019

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.

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.

How much is that doggy in the window?

July 17th, 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!

The blue spotted dog can be viewed at Clement’s showroom in Haslemere. You can find out more about the project and view all of the hounds here.

Property transformations: steel windows in period properties

June 11th, 2019

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.

As we enter 2019, it seems the trend for steel window frames and screens is set to continue. Able to blend seamlessly with both modern and period interior schemes, the choice to add steel windows or screens to your home or workplace introduces a timeless character that is easy to blend or mix up with fresh interior design to make a statement.
