Burglary is common in the UK at 817 per day – thats a one in forty-three chance of your household being burgled. With the colder, longer, darker nights, we start thinking about home security and keeping energy bills down – a particularly important consideration during the current cost of living / energy crisis.
Crittall’s advanced steel framed window, HomelightPlus ticks all the boxes for making your home more secure and helping to keep down costly energy bills. ‘Factors like security and energy savings are key when deciding which windows are best for your home. You can put your mind at rest and significantly save on energy bills by choosing high quality, well designed, stylish steel windows says Russell Ager, Managing Director of Crittall Windows.
Look to the innovation in window frame development. For example, our reengineered HomelightPlus range of residential windows is the 21st century enhanced version of the original Standard Metal Window first made by our company during the 1920s. It brings new-look styling and window profiling, plus higher energy-savings, performance, and enhanced security. Whatever the type or size of your property, it’s an authentic ‘like for like’ steel window. Peace-of-mind is reassured through an improved, robust, security multi-point locking option tested to the Enhanced Security PAS 24 standard – so the window is especially secure. With higher energy-saving accreditations, the window is thermally improved to meet Part L of Building Regulations by achieving either a Window Energy Rating (WER) Band B or a U value as low as 1.0w/m2k.’
For additional energy efficiency, HomelightPlus windows include double weatherstripping, and feature larger, high-performance, double-glazing units which, coupled with minimal profile sizes, achieve excellent Window Energy Rating standards. These features provide year-round comfort ensuring this bespoke modern steel window retains heat during cold winters, and controls heat in the summer, whilst also generally
reducing noise levels.
Easy to replace, HomelightPlus windows replicate the original Homelight standard metal window with modular, multi-light construction and comes with fixed, top or side hung including projecting options. While its even slimmer ‘timeless’ frame profiles and sight-lines present a light delicate feel inside and out, creating a welcome sense of airiness and space. To maximise daylight, the window’s design incorporates larger areas of glass than any other window of a similar size.
Quality-made, galvanized steel windows like this will last over 60 years. They are competitively priced, economical to maintain long-term. While being Polyester powder coated ensures a consistent, even, coating, not requiring redecoration for 25 – 30 years.
The window is available through the nationwide network of Crittall Specialist Partners in a choice of styles (including true divided glazing bar options) and as part of the Crittall Colour Collection in 46 colours, plus different colours can be specified for internal and external surfaces. The steel window frames can match – or contrast with – your interior décor.
Mr Ager adds: ‘When choosing window frames for your home, carefully consider the style and material. They have a dramatic impact on the look – personality – of your home, even affecting its value. Its important that the windows chosen match its style. Installed appropriately, quality steel windows can enhance a property.
It’s not worth spoiling the look of a property for the sake of a cheap installation. Ensure you install the window brand it says it is – only the original, genuine make. As a top brand in the marketplace and the original steel window company, our steel windows, doors and screens are often imitated but never matched.’
