The aesthetics of slimline steel windows are set to be even more stylish and impressive now as Steel Window Association member, Steel Window Fittings, www.steelwindowfittings.com, has launched a range of revolutionary concealed, multi-point locking systems specifically for W30, W40 and W50TB window profiles.
Traditionally, slimline-steel windows have been conventionally closed and locked; that is a handle latches the window or door at that handle point only. PVC, timber, aluminium and large box section steel windows have enjoyed concealed multipoint locking for a long time. This is due to the fact they incorporate much larger section profiles and so can accommodate more easily.
The benefits for manufacturers and refurbishers of steel windows and the buildings’ occupants, is that a single slimline steel window can have a number of locking points on it. With this new system, security is greatly improved, durability is enforced and larger windows can be designed and produced. The concealed system is driven by a single key-locking or non-locking handle that is available in five different designs and seven standard finishes.
