Thin framed windows & doors
When a person talks of Crittall ® style windows or doors, they are normally referring to a window or door with a thin steel frame usually with a dark colour. Crittall® windows were originally first used during the 1880’s. But they became fashionable with the Art Deco period and give an industrial feel to a property.
Notable installations include the Houses of Parliament.
Crittall® is a trade mark and these style of windows are still available directly from Crittall®
