How To Choose The Right Window?

Are you renovating or building your home? IQ Glass offer a wide range of modern windows solutions to suit all builds but which one suits your design best?

Modern Glass Technology by IQ Glass

Frameless ‘Picture’ Windows

A picture window is the first option for those looking to create a frameless fixed window.

Structural glass can be used to create frameless windows when no opening element is required. These so-called ‘Picture Windows’ can be designed with no visible supports or fixings for a truly frameless window installation. These frameless windows look great in large sizes overlooking excellent views.

You can find out more about structural glass for windows here.

Oriel Windows

Oriel Windows is the window choice for those who are looking to create a modern box or bay window. The cantilevered window base can be used as a light filled window seat.

As the structural glass windows protrude from the face of a building they can bring in light from many different angles throughout the day. Externally the finish achieved is frameless with glass to glass connections to the corners and at the head.

Aluminium Casement Windows

Aluminium windows are often the first choice for modern design projects. The aluminium framing profiles offer a square edged modern design with slim profile sizes.

The aluminium window profiles come in a variety of designs to suit a range of designs. Whether you want a very large opening window or you prefer to focus on getting the slimmest frame possible; IQ Glass can offer an aluminium window design to suit.

With the aluminium framing of these windows available in any RAL colour you can engineer the design to suit your building. We are also able to create steel replica windows from these modern thermally broken frames for a more cost effective approach to steel windows.

Our signature minimal windows system can be expertly engineered into an extremely slim framed sliding window system.

The sliding aluminium window has framing profiles of just 21mm with all surrounding framework capable of being hidden. This contemporary window solution is available in large sizes of up to 8.5m2 per sliding window pane. They can also be designed to slide away from an open corner or slide into cavity pockets within walls.

This is the slimmest window solution available for projects that want to emulate the slim framed finish of the minimal windows into a window opening.

Mondrian Windows

Mondrian Windows are the perfect solution for those looking for a traditional steel window design without the inherent thermal performance issues of Crittall or similar systems.

With extremely minimal framing sections and bespoke glazing bar designs you can recreate your favourite steel window design.

The slim steel framework of the Mondrian system has a full two part thermal break and comes with a double glazed unit as standard for impressive thermal performance.

The slim steel framing sections can be made from galvanised steel for a traditional appearance, stainless steel, Corten steel or architectural bronze as required.

Guillotine Windows

For a wow factor window.

The vertical sliding sash window can create a floor to ceiling sash window made from slim aluminium framing. The profiles are derived from our minimal window frames with 21mm horizontal frames. The openings can be automated or manual depending on the configuration and size of the opening leaf.

Full multi storey glass facades can be created or panoramic sliding windows to upper floor spaces.

Carminati Skyline Windows

The Carminati Skyline system offers slim modern windows in a warm timber frame.

This window system is perfect for projects that want to include timber framed windows within a modern design. Even using a timber frame the sightlines are slim, as minimal as 60mm.

The timber frames can be finished for a natural timber frame or painted to suit your internal design. Externally the frames can be clad in aluminium for low maintenance.

Architectural Steel Windows

For those that want steel frames but larger sizes than the Mondrian system can offer.

The slightly bigger framing sections of our architectural metal windows allow them to be made into much larger window designs for imposing structures up to 4m high.

The slightly deeper framing section also creates a slightly higher level of thermal insulation and facilitates the use of triple glazing for projects where a higher level of thermal performance will be required from a steel framed system.

As with the Mondrian Windows system the frames can be made from galvanised steel, stainless steel, Corten steel and architectural bronze.

Slim Aluminium Glass Facades

Perfect for creating walls of slim framed glass as an alternative to structural glazing.

If you are looking to create a wall of minimally framed glass (and structural glass walls are out of budget or not suitable for your project) then a slim framed façade system will be a great option for you.

With vertical sightlines of 35mm you can create large walls of glass with very minimal framing.

Facades with Concealed Vents

Great for glass walls with an opening window within them.

If you want to create a glass façade that has an opening element integrated into it then a façade system with concealed vents is the neatest way to achieve this.

If you were to integrate a hinged door within a wall of frameless structural glass we would have to integrate a steel section to support the door meaning that the framing profiles around the door will be much large than the frameless glass façade.

Our 60mm façade system is able to incorporate an inward opening window or door with no change to the minimal 60mm aluminium frame size.
