Who are Crittall?
Crittall are the worlds leading suppliers of steel windows, doors and internal screens. We have a rich heritage stretching over almost 200 years of designing innovative and iconic fenestration.
Crittall have been at the forefront design evolution, including the Bauhaus Movement, with Crittall products fitted into a number of historical projects including The Big Ben Tower in London. Other notable projects include the Titanic, Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, Yale and Princeton universities, the BBC offices and 300 Central Park West.
What is an Authentic Crittall product?
Due to our rich heritage, we have succumbed to the forces of imitation, with many brands offering aluminium alternatives and other Crittall-style products confusing the market. We want you to purchase your Crittall knowing you are buying a genuine, hand crafted, bespoke and high quality product which will enhance the value of any property.
How do I know if my product is an authentic Crittall?
The Crittall Fenestra Joint
There are a few ways to identify whether your product is genuine Crittall. Our most popular products, Corporate W20 & Innervision can be identified by their unique Fenestra joint, pictured below. The Fenestra joint (patented by Crittall in the early 1900s), revolutionised the steel window industry by offering unsurpassed strength and enabling increased steel window production. Additionally, by weaving the intersecting glazing bars, the Fenestra joint produces slimmer glazing bars to increase natural light.
The Crittall Plaque
Another way to identify your Crittall products is by the presence of a discreet plaque fitted into the jamb of the window/door, to stamp Crittall authenticity and approval. These stamps will be on any Crittall product supplied and installed by a Crittall Specialist Partner, fitted from August 2019.
