Anytime you can build something with a new material that offers strength, versatility, or increased opportunity for technological advancements, you open the door for transforming the nature of it, whether it’s a door, window, or any other fixture, and give it additional functionality. Here are four ways steel is transforming contemporary door and window architecture.
- Metro steel doors are thermally broken. Thermally Broken Steel has a thin insulating layer, usually made of polyurethane, that reduces the transfer of heat energy through Steel. This means steel doors and windows are far more insulated and energy-efficient than ever before.
- Steel doors and windows best match the new architectural style of modern minimalism. Modern minimalism focuses on simplicity of style and the reduction of clutter and excess patterns. Steel has a clean sleek look that can best enhance the sunny open design that minimalism encourages.
- Steel window frames are constructed to be razor-thin. Because steel windows are thermally broken, they no longer rely on increased material and width to increase their insulating properties; windows can be held in thin bands of steel which work to open any window space and make a room feel sunnier.
- Steel doors and windows are increasingly popular in residences, not just commercial buildings. It used to be that steel doors and windows were for commercial use only. However, due to recent advances in energy efficiency, and easy customization, as well as increased popularity, you can find a wide range of steel doors and windows that fit your home regardless of age or style.
