Glazing system's thermal break technology provides contemporary comfort levels
T60 is an innovative, thermally broken steel window and door system from Crittall that combines the aesthetics of the company’s traditional fenestration solutions with 21st century levels of thermal and acoustic performance.
With T60 Crittall is able to meet the most exacting thermal credentials. By employing thermal break technology, T60 can provide contemporary comfort levels in advance of traditional steel window performance.
The window features an advanced high density, glass fibre reinforced polyurethane isolator as a thermal barrier. This, together with housing high performance double or triple glazing up to 32mm wide, ensures the system surpasses the requirements of current regulations. T60 can provide a thermal rating of Uw 0.8 W/m²/K or 0.14 BTU. Sound reduction over 40dB can be achieved using laminated sound-reducing glass.
Equally importantly for architects and their clients, the windows and doors retain slim sightlines associated with Crittall’s traditional rolled steel profiles, maximising both visual appeal and daylighting.
Each frame is fully welded ensuring strength and durability. As specifiers would expect from Crittall, T60 complies with the latest EN performance standards relating to air filtration, water permeability and structural wind resistance.
The system also conforms to security standard EN16727, with optional multi-locking available for additional peace of mind.
Multiple opening configurations
The functionality of T60 is further boosted by a wide range of opening configurations comprising side, top and bottom; inward or outward; vertical and horizontal pivot (for the classic warehouse aesthetic); and double-leaf inward or outward opening doors.
In common with all Crittall products, T60 is corrosion protected and finished with Duralife, an architectural-grade polyester powder coating. This provides excellent levels of durability and longevity.
The windows and doors are available in a wide range of RAL and British Standard colours. Specifiers can also choose a custom option, including metallic and textured finishes.
T60’s visually clean and slender design means that it is ideally suited to both new-build and restoration projects. Traditional aesthetics ensure that the profile can be specified with confidence on listed buildings and projects in conservation areas.
T60 is aimed at the full range of market sectors, including commercial, high-end residential, health, education and hotels.
Crittall’s T60 windows at The Levine Building, Trinity College, Oxford
A new building in the grounds of historic Trinity College, Oxford, illustrates how T60 helps marry 21st century environmental performance seamlessly with traditional aesthetic requirements.
Crittall’s T60 thermally broken steel windows make a major contribution to the Levine Building’s sustainability credentials.
The new buildings have been designed by Adam Architecture in a restrained classical manner to augment the distinctive character of the surrounding conservation area that includes listed structures.
It is the first major building project to have taken place at Trinity College for more than 50 years.
