Galvanised Steel

Galvanised Steel

Galvanised Steel is by far the most common framing material for steel windows and doors. This steel alloy offers the strength benefits of steel with a reduced capacity for oxidisation or rust. The smooth surface of galvanised steel can then be finished with a polyester powder coat to create a steel window frame in any colour you need.

Corten Steel

COR-TEN steel is just a trademarked name for Weathered Steel which is a group of steel alloys developed to create a corrosion resistant steel that didn’t need painting or finishing. It is created by accelerating the natural oxidisation of steel to form a layer of iron oxide, or rust, on the surface of the steel frame. This rusted outer coating seals the steel profile, preventing further oxidisation or corrosion to the steel over time.

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel is a stable steel alloy created using a mixture of iron, carbon, nickel and molybdenum. The resulting steel material is highly resistant to corrosion whilst maintaining the mechanical properties and strength of steel. There are various versions of stainless steel which contain different balances of the various alloy component materials, each of which can be finished in different ways. Stainless Steel alloy 316L is a stainless steel material that is suitable to be used in harsh external environments, such as marine or coastal environments. Stainless Steel 316L can be finished with a scotch-brite or polished finish.

Architectural Bronze

Architectural Bronze is a modern alloy that is made from a mixture of copper, zinc and various additional metals to create different bronze alloys with varying characteristics. The copper element of the metal’s makeup provides the material with high levels of corrosion resistance. Zinc offers the metal high levels of tensile strength and durability which allow the metal to be used to create extremely slim profiles with high durability.
