Western Window Systems' Simulated Steel line is thermally broken and features moving glass walls and windows with clean, narrow profiles to keep glass big and maximize natural light and views.
It can be used to achieve several styles: from traditional projects with factory-style windows and doors to modern minimalist looks featuring large panes of glass. Custom options include split finishes, screens, and hardware. Moving glass walls and windows can be specified and are available in oversize options thanks to Western Window Systems signature aluminum extrusion design, which is low-maintenance and environmentally friendly.
Low U-value ratings, and low-E, argon-filled dual-pane glass make the thermally broken simulated steel line great at reducing energy consumption. A proprietary Insulbar profile assists in increased thermal performance and strength. Laminated and security glass essential for noise reduction is supported as part of the Simulated Steel line.
Steel doors and windows that can cost double the price of aluminum, require field glazing and include lengthy lead times; Western Window Systems’ simulated steel line, however, mirrors the look of steel without losing efficiency, and value.
Designed around narrow sightlines, beveled glass stops, and coped muntin bars, the simulated steel line replicates steel profiles used in many historic buildings, universities, and commercial projects.
- Narrow, Clean Profiles
Design-forward, the simulated steel line is all about detail, such as beveled glass stops and 0.875” simulated divided lites (SDLs) designed to emulate a steel putty glaze.
- High-Performance Glass
Options from Cardinal IG include laminated glass, solar- and glare-control glass, enhanced winter performance glass, and low-maintenance glass.
Available in-stock, as designer selections, or customized to match any color.
- Easy Integration
Simulated steel doors and windows easily integrate to form a unified look.
