W40 Windows are an excellent choice for your commercial development. Steel Window services have successfully designed and installed W40 into many projects and they continue to be high in demand.
In addition to improved thermal performance, weather-tightness is significantly enhanced and has a less obtrusive fitting with variable geometry hinges, friction pivots and multi-point locking cremone bolts concealed within the profiles. W40 achieves the Secured by Design standard.
The insulating glass units are drained and ventilated in accordance with the modern best practices and gasket glazed to ensure consistent neatness and reliability of the seal.
Key Facts about the W40 Window
W40 range is available in a plain galvanised finish, in addition to an extensive range of RAL colour polyester powder coat finishes
The W40 range of profiles is the most heavy-duty of the available mild steel window ranges, and thus, offers the client the best choice of opening window and doors types and the widest range of permitted sizes. Sightlines, being that of the W20 range, are not compromised by the increased strength and this allows the architect complete design flexibility whilst maintaining the slim elegant aesthetic, which is synonymous with mild steel windows.
Project including W40 Windows
When completing the Regent Street regeneration, the W40 system was selected on the basis of its slimmer sightlines, strength and the ease with which it meets part L of the building regulations. Acoustic performance was another key consideration and SWS, subsequently, carried out laboratory tests to determine the sound reduction properties of different glazing arrangements.
