Frameless Box Windows
Windows boxes have long been used in residential architecture to provide a relaxing and bright place for occupants to sit and relax.
IQ Glass regularly create these modern boxed windows, known as Oriel Windows, creating almost frameless pop out glass boxes to be used as either a large and multi-dimensional surface for light ingress or as a bright and comfortable place to sit.
By using our expertise in frameless structural glazing and our knowledge of high specification structural glass design IQ Glass can design these glass window seats to be almost frameless. Where the panels of glass meet on a corner no framings are needed, instead the structural glass units can be connected together using structural silicone creating a slim weather proof seal with a neat internal and external appearance.
With the walls of new build homes becoming thicker to increase thermal performance window seats are becoming easier to design into a building with little box projection needed to create a suitable sitting area.
