What are Steel Look Doors and Windows?

Steel look Doors and Windows are the perfect solutions for projects that involve heritage or listed building renovations that are likely to have planning constraints. As the name suggests they are designed to look like steel windows such as Essex-based British brand Crittall®. Made from durable powder-coated aluminium, the steel-look windows and doors make use of astragal bars and horizontal couplers that can be stacked to create the authentic grid-like appearance that is increasingly popular in today’s market. The product however is not limited to just heritage or listed buildings and can be found in all types of modern renovations, used both externally and internally by those who are looking for the Art-Deco appearance they provide.

Importantly it is worth noting that aluminium steel look windows are not a direct replacement for elegant classic steel windows, but they do offer a lot of similarities at a fraction of the cost of steel. Some of the key benefits include the following:

  • Similar fine sightlines to the traditional metal windows with stepped vents and putty glazing
  • Antique style hardware such as bulb end, monkey tail and teardrop handles – Our Partners Aluco Aluminium have a particularly comprehensive range
  • As well as coming in a standard RAL 9005 black matt finish, they can be powder-coated to any colour of your choice, including dual-colour frames.
  • Attractive and decorative Art-Deco style
  • The ability to be double glazed – including reeded glass

The aluminium profiles utilise an innovative polyamide thermal break, creating a barrier between the cold air outside and the warm air inside. Much the same as other advanced aluminium glazing systems on the market, the use of this technology drastically reduces the risk of any thermal transmittance and enhances the overall performance of the windows and doors. With the correct usage of glass, the products can achieve a U Value to meet the requirements of the Approved Document L 2010.

Ultimately when selecting doors and windows for your home, there are multiple things to consider but our Aluco steel look windows and doors are both affordable and stylish and raise kerb appeal on all types of properties.
