Crittall Fendors’ new healthcare window combines an iconic Crittall steel exterior with a market-leading SwingVent anti ligature window to create an aesthetic exterior window with enhanced interior safely and security.
The Swingvent Heritage window acknowledges the fact that many NHS and private healthcare providers occupy buildings that were designed and built in the Victorian era. In many cases, these beautiful buildings are listed and altering or upgrading them to meet modern care requirements is challenging as local planners retain strict control on matters concerning external appearance.
Perfect for refurbishment and replica replacement projects, SwingVent heritage has been created using unique technology from our Commercial and Specialist sectors to appease popular demand, following extensive market research. Combining the qualities of the thermally broken steel framed T60 window specified extensively on heritage buildings with the very successful Swingvent window.
T60 provides a traditional steel window external appearance while the inner Swingvent window presents the full range of special safety and security features which include an anti-ligature flush internal frame to help prevent self-harm attempts. Ventilation can be controlled by patients through a specially designed ventilator with a flush control mechanism that cannot be forced.
The slim steel frame maximises natural light and ventilation and double, triple, security grade, solar or acoustic glazing can be fitted depending on requirements.
Swingvent Heritage is available in top hung, side hung and fully fixed options and offers impressive U values.
