unique. You maintain the slim framing sections, the improved thermal performance from advances in thermal breaking, and inherent security of steel framing but in a design that is new and different. Architectural Bronze windows are popular on luxury


building designs for their luxury high-end aesthetics. Architectural Bronze, or Brass, can be finished in a number of ways to create the antique appearance that most architects want when using these frames. David Chipperfield used these ‘Bronze’ window frames to


of less than 1.0 W/m2 K which is impressive for any type of


metal window, especially steel. The modern, thermally efficient steel windows are perfect to


recreate the Art Deco, industrial architectural designs that are so popular at the moment. By using these modern slim frames in a galvanised steel frame, powder coated to your preferred frame colour, you create slim metal windows which are a perfect match to traditional designs, but with the thermal performance required of modern buildings. But what about a steel window made from CortenTM


Steel?


Or Architectural Bronze? Or even Stainless Steel? All are possible now with the innovations in steel fabrication. Steel windows made from these interesting framing materials can create an exciting architectural design that is different and

the exclusive De Vere Gardens Development in Kensington, London. The use of this elegant framing material to the windows enhances the luxurious design to this high end residential development. A similar design finish can be created using a Stainless Steel window or door system if a silver finished appearance is required or desired. Corten Steel frames will give an altogether different


appearance. The weathered coating of Corten Steel is unique and textured, giving depth and interest to the window frames. Using this fascinating material for the window frames on your project is a bold design move but if executed well can create amazingly unique buildings that are easy to maintain with a finish that will not degrade. With modern fabrication techniques and industry


innovations there is more scope than ever to incorporate steel windows and doors on your project.
