Windows are an essential accessory for any steel building. They beautify steel buildings and add to their design. Apart from adding to the aesthetics of a steel building, windows allow ventilation and proper lighting of the area too.
To make windows more durable and long lasting they should either be galvanized or covered with aluminum framing. Such windows require low maintenance and are less prone to destruction caused by weather. Ordering windows at the time of steel building purchase helps avoids discrepancies related to dimensions later.
Types of windows for steel buildings to choose from:
Steel builders provide various types and sizes of windows to select from. The selection of the window depends on the taste of the buyer as well as on its placement in the building. The most common types are:
Horizontal Slide Windows: They have overlapping sashes that slide horizontally; providing lighting and ventilation to the building. These may have features like half screen, latch, tainted glasses, weather stripping etc.
Single Hung Windows: They are fixed at the one end and movable on the other. These may also have additional features.
Slim Line Windows: These windows cannot be opened and are fixed and closed. Thus, these are basically used for letting the light in or enjoying a view of the outside. Many steel building owners opt for them to add on the appearance of their steel buildings and offices.
The types of windows mentioned above can be either insulated or non insulated, self framing or requiring sub framing etc. depending on the buyers’ and buildings’ requirements. Windows are not a part of the steel building kits but come completely assembled to enable easy installation in steel buildings.
