Sustainability at the core
For healthier indoor living and reduced environmental impact
A SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL
One of the most significant aspects of a sustainable product is its durability before needing to be replaced. Many innovative projects from the early 1900s, whose steel windows are still in excellent working condition today, testify to the unrivalled durability of steel.
A significant portion of energy enters and leaves a building through windows, which can account for up to 30 per cent of heat loss. With intelligent design and the choice of high-efficiency components, a building’s energy consumption can be substantially reduced.
Modern thermal break technologies, the exceptionally low thermal conductivity values of steel – combined with the total absence of draughts, which alone would compromise any insulation system – and the possibility of accommodating high-performance glazing, even of great weight and thickness, make it possible to reduce energy consumption for air conditioning significantly. To the full benefit of the environment in which we live.
