GreenSteps triple glazed windows shortlisted for Build It Awards 2013

GreenSteps triple glazed curtain walling incorporating lift and slide door sashes have been shortlisted for the ‘Best Glazed Product’ category in the Build It Awards for 2013.

The GreenSteps system of Triple Glazed Lift & Slide Doors in Curtain Walling creates a remarkable feeling of light and space in any building. The design of the curtain wall is completely bespoke, with any combination of glazed panel sizes and frame sections. This allows it to fit into almost any building design. The key benefits to any self-builder or renovation project are:

  • The ability to create a large expanse of glazed wall, uninterrupted by frame, in order to make the most of an outlook.
  • To improve the performance of the building due to the use of 48mm thickness 0.6W/m2K triple glazed units with two low-e glass coatings.
  • To open internal and external spaces seamlessly.
  • The extremely low maintenance of the system.

The frame elements of the curtain wall system are a slim 56mm wide. All the internal parts of the system are made from natural FSC certified Redwood timber, which is warm to the touch and ensures sustainability of construction. All joining brackets between the timber elements are concealed, giving a seamless appearance to the construction.

The external aluminium curtain wall elements are produced by Gutmann in Germany, who are renowned for high performance aluminium components. They are powder coated to be resistant to the elements and give a very low maintenance product, with only occasional cleaning of the faces required. No screw spots or fixings are visible from the outside either, giving a slick and smooth appearance.
