Steel windows have been in existence since the 1930's and are the feature of many period buildings. Steel windows can be found in many different building types particullarly in houses built in the Art deco period, 1930's English houses, Country properties, Tudor and Mock Tudor. Steel windows have a significant role to play in the historiy of British architecture chacterised by the extremely slim frame profiles and 'sunshine bays' where both the frame and glass is curved. Windows from this period add a certain character and charm to a building which cannot be re-created with alternative materials such as PVC or timber.
With advances in technology steel windows can now be manufactured as direct replacement for original steel windows with added benefits of enhanced security and double glazing improveing energy and acoustic efficiency of the windows. Modern steel windows are galvanised and polyester powder coated giving a long term low maintenance window.
