The W20 range was inspired by the original Crittal windows of old. In this revised version, the depth of the profile has been increased by 7 mm to be able to accommodate glasses with higher thicknesses.
The basic style of the W20 range was inspired by the “SMW” (Standard Metal Windows) range, which was proposed on the market immediately after the First World War 1914-1918. In this revised version, the depth of the profiles has been increased by 7 mm to be able to accommodate glasses with higher thicknesses. Thanks to its simple and slender design, W20’s basic style expresses an unparalleled elegance, earning a permanent presence in projects looking for a minimalist design. In most cases, this type of window is requested in combination with small Tmuntin bars of only 23 or 29 mm width to divide the glass in smaller panes, which replicate the typical industrial windows.
Originally, the W20 range had been developed for commercial and industrial applications. In recent decades, it has been rediscovered for contemporary residential architecture in milder climatic zones. The somatic marker of this classic suite is the “stepped” design of the flanges. This detail confers windows nice proportions and shadow lines and allows to achieve a glass pane planarity between fixed and operable windows.
A strong point of steel is the ability to be curved into any shape or geometric form and then to be transformed into a window. However, there is no quality more readily associated with steel windows and doors than narrow sightlines. For extremely slender requirements, the W20 range offers as well a slim casement line, which allows to further lighten the visual impact of the frames.
