The 19th-century steel windows are back and have made their way into public buildings, custom residences, and luxury storefronts. The versatile, energy-efficient, and classic appearance draws architects to the contemporary version of the steel frame windows. Other huge advantages include maximum structural potential (supports large spans of glass) and slim sightlines. Here are the benefits of incorporating thermally broken steel windows into your next venture.
Steel windows can complement any architectural design from traditional, modern, craftsman, colonial, gothic, and Victorian. Steel windows are used in several operational large glass openings that include pivot, swing, fold, and slide. Although other few building materials are versatile, steel windows accept a wide range of specialized patina finishes.
Thermal conductivity occurs when a metal is used in framing a window or door. The use of thermally broken windows solves the issues of thermal transfer by providing a modern and elegant solution. The interior and exterior frames are surrounded by the thermal barrier. The metal dissipates the thermal barrier when the outside comes into contact with hot or cold energy. For a long-lasting, durable, and strong window, mix modern glass techniques with thermally broken steel windows.
Low Cost of Ownership
A building material that is long-lasting, energy-efficient, and aesthetically pleasing can sometimes be among the most expensive material for windows. Steel is estimated to be four times more expensive than aluminum. Although steel is the most expensive material for a project, the cost of ownership is low in the long run. The durability, low maintenance, and longevity of steel make it a preferred material worldwide.
Steel continues to be one of the world’s most used building materials. If you are looking for a high-quality thermally broken window that is versatile with a low cost of ownership and thermal performance, please feel free to contact us.
