Steel Windows Last

If you compare aluminum versus steel windows then steel windows are easily the stronger and more durable of the two.  A steel window is approximately three times stronger than aluminum.  It does not crack with age or disintegrate over time.  It produces solid windows able to hold an immense amount of weight and size offering breathtaking outdoor views that may otherwise not exist at all.

High Fire Rating

When a builder is designing a structure he/she must keep in mind the required building codes of fire windows.  In many cases, city codes require fire rated steel windows to be used, especially when related to specific structures. Check with your building codes for details.

How are Fire Windows Rated?

Fire windows are measured by the duration of time it takes to protect a building from flames.  A fire window with a high rating is considered better protection for occupants and those around or near the building.  Steel windows prevent further tragic situations from occurring for steel windows do not break, melt or cause a back draft.  This significantly decreases the danger people and firefighters face during such disasters.

Versatility

As mentioned in the introduction, steel windows can be used for a wide array of styles and looks.  You can go extremely modern or traditional.  It does not matter what route you choose for you are able to customize your orders into whatever form, shape, style needed to complete your design.
