Thermally Broken

Innovative and tailored for both new construction and renovation endeavors prioritising energy efficiency and visual appeal, the recently introduced W50TB steel window boasts slender sightlines and an impressive U-value as low as 1.4 W/m2k, contingent upon the chosen glazing unit. Engineered meticulously, the W50TB system comprises thermally broken steel sections meticulously crafted to echo the essence of traditional W20 steel windows. Distinguished by its thermally broken profile, the manufacturing process of W50TB steel windows diverges from conventional solid, hot-rolled steel section windows.

Introducing the W50TB steel window has expanded the array of solutions available to specifiers, particularly within the realm of new construction, where contemporary architectural excellence is paramount. Embodying all the advantages typically associated with steel windows—such as slim profiles, expansive glass panels, superior light diffusion, and ample ventilation—the W50TB offers remarkable adaptability.

 

Ferrofinestra

The FerroFinestra collection encompasses an assortment of steel window profiles crafted through hot-rolling, cold-forming, and laser welding techniques. Architects have historically favoured steel windows, particularly when seeking to imbue a building with distinctive character and overall visual appeal. The minimalist allure of solid hot-rolled steel profiles, coupled with their capacity to sculpt windows, stands unparalleled. Their sleek contours lend an air of weightlessness to the frames, accentuating the façade's transparency. Such elegance proves challenging to replicate with the bulkier profiles characteristic of alternative materials.

Bronzofinestra

Bronze, an ancient metal, has been in use since the dawn of the Bronze Age over 5,000 years ago. Regarded as a 'living material,' it undergoes natural oxidation and weathering, displaying a spectrum of colors from copper red to golden yellow, ultimately settling into classic brown hues. Its inherent warmth sets it apart from other metals, emanating a distinct cosiness. In contemporary architecture, there's a renewed appreciation for the value and allure of this noble metal. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it stood as the primary choice for windows and doors in numerous iconic commercial buildings and residences, a testament to its enduring appeal.

Architectural bronze, a prestigious material tailored for FerroFinestra-designed profiles, is a copper alloy comprising approximately 58% copper, 40% zinc, and 2% other elements. Renowned for its remarkable physical attributes such as hardness, resilience, and ductility, it stands as an optimal choice for crafting windows and doors. As a 'living material,' architectural bronze undergoes natural oxidation over time, acquiring unique and captivating hues. Offering versatility, a wide range of openings is available, including tilt-and-turn, single-sash, and double-sash configurations, alongside side-hung and bottom-hung windows that can open inward or outward.
