The steel window system available from IQ was a perfect solution to The Pump House replacement windows for the restoration project of a disused water treatment plant. Galvanised steel windows were used to provide the property with the historical steel window frames that can recall the mid 19th to mid 20th century design.

The steel windows used were fabricated from a high quality galvanised steel ensuring slim sightlines of only 47mm within a thermally broken steel system engineered with modern thermal break technology.
