Crittall Window Background & History
It is not surprising that most people have heard of crittall windows with over 50 million of these rolled steel windows being produced. Whilst there have been advances along the way, the majority of steel windows are quite basic single glazed systems that do require maintenance and can be extremely inefficient with regard to heat loss. Metal or steel windows produced around 1950 and afterwards are likely to be galvanized which did at least tackle the rust problems. There is no doubt that they are an important architectural feature in many properties and due to their inherent strength they usually last for a very long time. Craft Glass can restore crittall windows back to near new condition, a service which is often preferable to new replacement windows.
