What are Black Metal Framed Doors?
Black Steel framed windows and doors are characterized by panels of glass divided by metal frames to create a grid format. The frames are typically black but dark grey tones are also used.
This style of a grid format was first created in the mid 1800’s. However it is most recognised from the art deco style of the 1920’2 and 30’s. The minimal design and lines in a lightweight frame is typical of this era. Steel framed glass was also often used in industrial warehouse properties to allow natural light in via large expanses glass from small cheaper panes.
Are Metal Framed Doors Energy Efficient?
Those that remember steel framed glass and doors will remember the chill and condensation build up of a cold winters evening. However modern metal framed windows are double or even triple glazed to comply with current building regulations. Keeping your home insulated and your energy bills down.
