Genuine steel windows are being specified on a regular basis more frequently now than at any time during the last 30 years. Architects, planning officers, designers and property owners are becoming increasingly aware of the many benefits that steel windows have to offer, not least their robust strength and stunning good looks.
This revival in the specification of original steel windows has its roots in the growing trend to restore and preserve the finest of our old buildings rather than demolish them and construct new ones. Planning regulations in the UK concerning the protection of our architectural heritage are rigorous. Indeed, they are seen worldwide as an example of how the best of the past can be conserved and found new uses for in the modern world. Read the rest of this entry »

Steel windows as we know them are sleek, modern and wonderfully versatile so it’s hard to believe that their roots trace all the way back to medieval times.

Metal windows are specified for commercial projects for a vast number of reasons.

Or perhaps the project involves a modern structure that will benefit from the stunning good looks and contemporary feel that can only be achieved with steel. Read the rest of this entry »
Windows, when chosen correctly, complement the unique character of any property. They’re also integral to home security, energy efficiency and noise reduction. This means that window choice is an extremely important decision if you want to retain the style, safety and sustainability of your home. If you are considering replacing or fitting steel windows, there are a number of factors that should play a big part in the decision making process.
Dealing with period properties always presents a unique set of challenges. Usually the biggest issues arise in maintaining the integrity of the architecture when making changes or updating different features. These same issues occur time and again when owners of period properties need to replace or restore their old metal windows, so what can you do to make the process easier?
In any home, safety and security are always of the utmost importance. Windows are one of the most important factors in securing your home but are all too often overlooked in favour of other security systems. Windows are often the most fragile, and therefore easiest, points of entry for unwelcome visitors in your home.
With this in mind, it is important to make sure that your metal windows are up to scratch when it comes to security.
Spring sunshine is here which means it’s time to get outdoors again and start admiring our houses. What better way to maximise your property’s curb appeal by remodelling your windows before the spring and summer party season is in full swing?
