Crittall MW40 provides added protection where needed

  • 17 Jul 2019

Crittall’s Corporate MW40 steel windows offer the ideal solution where superior air, window or water resistance and greater sound attenuation are required.

With the same high-quality appearance as the company’s successful Corporate W20 range, the MW40 variant can accept glass up to twice the thickness as its stablemate. Either double or triple glazing up to 32mm thick can be installed with a consequent higher level of thermal or sound insulation. This is achieved while retaining the same slender steel profile for which Crittall products are renowned thereby ensuring maximum light ingress.

Corporate MW40 features a high-performance double weather seal and is supplied hot-dip galvanised with a low maintenance Duralife polyester powder coating in a range of RAL and BS shades.

It is available in a wide range of configurations and its special properties are proving particularly attractive in the education, hotel and healthcare sectors as well as other commercial settings where thermal and acoustic properties are a major concern.

The windows can be installed with solar control, laminated security or sound control glazing as required and the window has found favour with architects for both new build and heritage style replacement windows.

Corporate MW40’s ‘stepped’ profile is particularly redolent of traditional fenestration dating back to the early 20th century. Avoiding a bland, flat-faced appearance it, therefore, fits well into heritage refurbishments but also offers a clean-cut aesthetic equally at home with contemporary designs.
