Today Facades World we bring you new architectural news, it's about the implementation of minimalist windows with steel profiles, a highly rigid element that has a subtle design and maximum transparency. Do not miss it and fasten that belt, right now ... Let's start!
Minimalist windows with steel profiles
After centuries using the wood in window and door carpentry, a new material was adopted for these purposes: steel, which evolved to generate increasingly thin and resistant frames. But nevertheless, efficient and low cost materialsLike aluminum and PVC, they gradually began to replace their massive use by increasing the size of the frames.
The steel characteristics provide useful solutions for particular conditions, for example, in high traffic doors, in security doors or windows, and also in monumental facades. In relation to passive fire protection, there are fire-resistant steel profiles that meet the standards of F30, F60, F90 and F120 in fixed elements, and F30, F60 and F90 in doors. These profiles prevent the spread of fire, smoke and heat, protecting the evacuation routes and the integrity of the buildings.
Compared to aluminum, steel is 3 times more rigid. Therefore, to reach their resistance, the aluminum profiles they must be 3 times larger. One of the great attributes of steel is its ability to be welded, thus reducing its buckling lengths by dispensing with articulated joints. Welding also allows elements to be added, cleanly and without the need for screws ... Let's see more examples of minimalist windows with steel profiles.
