Many steel windows fitted into school buildings are
now causing problems as a result of poor maintenance
which has lead to distorted opening casements letting
in water, draughts and noise.
With experience gained since the nineteen forties West Leigh have developed a range of solutions to overcome these problems with old school windows. Many faults on older steel window frames are due to lack of maintenance, therefore if your school windows are sound but just gummed up with dirt and paint they can be serviced and overhauled. Aluminium and PVCu windows can benefit from new fittings, weather stripping, lubrication and cleaning.
However some steel school window frames may be distorted and damaged beyond repair. These were manufactured prior to galvanising and powder coating techniques which preserves today’s modern product. It is in most instances possible to replicate the original designs having the additional benefits of galvanising, weatherstripping, polyester powder coating and/or double glazing.
