AluK 58BW ST Windows
AluK’s 58BW ST aluminium windows were approved to replace the original Crittall windows in a landmark redevelopment project which has recently been completed in central Birmingham.
Now christened ‘The Lightwell’, it features 316 windows in the 58BW ST system and 3 suited doors in the GT55 system, all in a standard AluK Anthracite grey finish. They were fabricated and installed by AluK’s Luminia Select Partner EYG Commercial, based in Hull.
58BW ST Aluminium Windows Replicate the Look of Steel Frames
With traditional square sections and sight-lines of just 43mm in a fixed light, the 58BW ST windows are specifically designed for this type of steel replacement application and come with the benefit of impressive thermal and acoustic performance and high level security.
Floor to ceiling windows are an integral part of the design scheme in many of The Lightwell’s 77 one and two-bedroom apartments, penthouses and duplexes which surround a central courtyard, so the slim sightlines of the 58BW ST are crucial in maximising the natural light coming in.
EYG also had to ensure that the exterior aesthetic of the original five storey Herbert House remained as unchanged as possible so fabricated bespoke fanlights and round windows in the same AluK 58BW ST profile to replace the steel ones being removed.
