Pultruded Fenestrations - UK
Commissioned by a leading manufacturer of steel window and door-frames.
Steel frames are specified by architects in many refurbishments and
prestige new builds. The benefits are good torsional rigidity and
relatively slim sight lines, allowing panes with a high glass to frame
ratio. The project showed that pultrusion offers a possible solution
to the thermal break limitations of traditional steel windows.
