Hot-Rolled – The Product:

     CRITTALL WINDOWS Ltd. Hot-Rolled Steel has a significantly small amount of impurities which accumulate during the extraction of natural raw materials. Since CRITTALL insures that the amount of the trace elements in the steels is nominal, they do not pose a risk to the environment or human health of the client, manufacturer or installer.
Unlike most companies who produce windows made from aluminum or wood, the depth and visual mass of a steel window are extremely narrow which results in less material used while obtaining higher strength and durability. Large glass lites and narrow sightlines also results in better energy efficiency and unmatched aesthetics. A continued benefit of our Hot-Rolled steel is that it is 100% recyclable; unlike aluminum, wood and numerous alloy steels which our competitors use. This means that there is no waste during or after production because all scraps and surplus steel is continuously collected, melted down and reformed.

“Hot-rolled steel is NOT classified as “dangerous” under
the EU Chemical Regulations, so Safety Data
Sheet or hazardous material packaging,
marking or transport rules and regulations do not apply.”

     Furthermore, all packaging, crating and transportation materials of our hot-rolled steel windows and doors are 100% recyclable and there is no hazardous waste formed from any products.
