Aluminium Crittal Style Windows

A Crittall-style aluminium window is a contemporary take on the classic Crittall window design, which traditionally used steel frames.

In recent years, aluminium has become a popular alternative due to its lightweight, corrosion-resistant properties, and its ability to achieve a sleek, industrial look similar to traditional steel Crittall windows.

Benefits of Crittall-style Aluminium windows:

  • Aluminium Frame: Unlike traditional steel Crittall windows, which use steel frames, these windows feature aluminium frames. Aluminium is chosen for its strength, durability, and resistance to rust and corrosion.
  • Slim Profile: One of the defining characteristics of Crittall-style windows, whether steel or aluminium, is their slim profile. The aluminium frames are typically designed to be as thin as possible, creating a minimalist and modern appearance.
  • Divided Panes: Similar to their steel counterparts, aluminium Crittall-style windows often have divided panes of glass. The specific arrangement and number of panes can vary and can replicate the existing design.
  • Contemporary Aesthetic: Aluminium Crittall-style windows maintain the clean and minimalist aesthetic of traditional Crittall windows but with a contemporary twist. They are well-suited for modern and industrial-style homes and commercial spaces.
  • Energy Efficiency: Aluminium windows can be designed with thermal breaks and insulated glazing to improve energy efficiency, which is often a significant advantage over traditional steel Crittall windows that may have limited insulation properties.
  • Versatility: These windows can be used in various applications, including as fixed windows, casement windows, sliding doors, or room dividers. They are suitable for both interior and exterior use, offering versatility in design and functionality.
  • Customization: Aluminium Crittall-style windows can be customized to fit the specific requirements of a project. This includes choosing the frame colour, the type of glazing, and the configuration of divided panes to match the desired design aesthetic.
  • Maintenance: Aluminium windows are relatively low maintenance, as they do not rust or corrode like steel. They are easy to clean and can maintain their appearance over time with minimal effort.

Advanced Glass Technology & Energy Efficiency

We’re also proud to be able to say that our high tech glass technology means we can make the most of increased energy efficiency, resulting in higher levels of insulation:

  • Uvalues as low as 1.4 with all double glazing as standard
  • Triple glazing available in most designs, upgrading to 1.0 Uvalue
  • Acoustic glazing available for those concerned about road noise and noise pollution
  • Solar control glass also available for glazing effected by heat gain
