A Guide to Steel Look Windows

Steel windows and doors have adorned many architectural settings for over a century, with themes ranging from classic heritage to bold, modern designs.

At SEFAB, we supply window manufacturers with high-quality products to incorporate into their steel-look windows and doors. These products combine heritage qualities with modern functionality, making them popular among homeowners and designers.

Steel-look windows and doors are the perfect choice for homeowners seeking the timeless elegance of Crittall-style windows but with the durability and performance of modern materials.

They are the latest trend, characterised by black industrial-style frames with glass panels. The range of lookalike steel windows and doors looks at home in both period and new properties.

Long-Lasting Durability

One of the most remarkable features of steel windows and doors is their longevity. Even windows installed in buildings dating back to the early 20th century are often still in excellent condition today.

Steel-look windows and doors can now be manufactured in aluminium for even longer-lasting durability. In addition, the aluminium can be powder-coated to almost any RAL colour to match the customer’s exact specifications or even to match the hardware.

With minimal care and maintenance, steel-looking windows and doors can withstand the test of time and retain their shape and style for decades.

Steel-look windows and doors are long-lasting, energy-efficient, and offer great versatility.

Elegant Narrow Sightlines

Steel-look windows and doors’ slender sightlines are synonymous with elegance and sophistication. Unlike bulkier alternatives like wood or UPVC, they offer minimalist profiles that enhance the aesthetic appeal of any building.  The design offers a larger glass-to-frame ratio, allowing abundant natural light into the room.

Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly

At SEFAB, we are committed to sustainability. The aluminium used in our window and door profiles can be replaced and recycled at the end of their working life, making it an environmentally friendly choice.

Operation and Maintenance

Maintaining is simple. Regular cleaning with mild detergent and annual inspections of glazing and seals can help prolong the life of your windows and doors.  Using aluminium instead of steel eliminates rust corrosion associated with conventional steel windows, extending their life span.

Why Choose SEFAB?

SEFAB can manufacture high-quality profiles to incorporate into steel-look windows and doors.  We will endeavour to work with the customer to meet their needs, whether in shape, size, or colour.  Contact us to discuss your requirements, and we will gladly help you.
