Suppliers of: Steel windows steel window frames steel curtain walling fire rated Windows

REA Metal Windows Limited; Established in 1906. Specialists in the manufacture, installation and glazing of steel windows and doors.

REA operates an independently audited quality management system which complies with the requirements of EN ISO 9001: 2015 (BSI Cert No.FM 20449). We also manufacture the frames generally in accordance with BS 6510 which gives you the assurance that our products are to the standard you specify.

All our products are made to order from various galvanised steel profiles to suit most applications ranging from single paned ’hole in the wall’ installations, to multi framed composite assemblies for both fire rated and non-fire rated installations.

 

REA – W20 Steel Windows

The ’REAsteel W20’ range of hot rolled steel window profiles were introduced in the early 1960’s. The W20 steel window profiles, especially of the intermediate glazing bar at 28mm, make this product range the most suitable for replicating the small and marginal paned fenestrations typical of the 1930’s. W20 steel windows can accommodate sealed glass units up to 16mm thick, which can comply with Part L (England & Wales) of the current Building Regulations.

W20 can be used for internal room dividers, partitions and viewing windows; fixed screen can offer 30 minutes integrity only fire resistance.

REA – W30 Steel Windows

REA W30 windows are designed for domestic use, with a slender profile W30 is installed widely as a Georgian type window. W30 steel window profiles are rebated to accept up to a sealed glass unit up to 18mm thick. WER ratings B & C available.

REA – W40 Steel Windows

The REAsteel W40’ range of profiles is an evolutionary development of the traditional hot rolled steel window. The system was designed to accommodate up to 26mm sealed double glazed units, which can comply with Part L (England & Wales) of the current Building Regulations.

All hot rolled sections are rust proofed by the hot dip galvanising process to BS EN ISO 1461: 2009 and generally followed by a stove polyester coating to BS EN13438:2013 in a standard classic ral colour (wide range of colours available).

REA – “Tubular” range of Steel Glazed Screens & Steel Glazed Doors.

The main benefits of the product are robust durability, torsional rigidity and slim sight lines, allowing panes with a high glass to frame ratio. The depth of the frames at typically 50mm, together with a wide range of different depths of beading allowing a wide range of glazing options.

REA can also provide “Integrity Only” and “Integrity and Insulated” fire rated doors and fixed screens. These products are suited to the protection of adjacent properties at site boundaries and internal and external escape routes such as corridors, staircase and lift enclosures.

St David Centre, Westbourne Road, North London

August 2018

Highly commended in the ‘Best Change of Use of an Existing Building or Conversion’ category of the LABC awards, Hope Church Islington St David owes some of its success to the 33 windows and doors manufactured and installed by Steel Window Association member, REA Metal Windows. These had to work aesthetically while meeting a diversity of other requirements; including fire protection and thermal performance.

Few projects necessitate the range of internal window and door solutions that were used in the conversion of St David in Westbourne Road, North London. The overall scheme by Matthew Lloyd Architects involved the retention of a worship space within a new framework of social activity in the locally listed church building. It includes a newly created first floor which accommodates community administration and meeting rooms, a bridge over the hallway linking the two wings and a new basement excavated beneath the original nave.

REA Metal Windows worked closely with HOC UK, the contractors responsible for the overall project. The company manufactured, supplied, fixed and glazed seven high-performance W40 triple glazed windows with an overall U-value of 1.7Wm²k, 22 single or double leaf door sets, which were either thermally broken or fire rated, and four fire rated screens. The sizes of the individual units ranged from comparatively small windows to a screen with doors measuring around 5m high x 2m wide.

The products used included those from REA’s FirebREAk and REAframe ranges. FirebREAk steel screens can be designed to comply with the integrity requirements of BS476 part 22-1987 for 30, 60 and 120 minutes fire resistance. The REAframe range of doors and screens is manufactured from precision cold rolled steel profiles. The main benefits of the product are robust durability, torsional rigidity, which is especially beneficial in door fabrication, and relatively slim sight lines, allowing panes with a high glass to frame ratio.

All the windows and doors used at St David were polyester powder coated in black. This finish was complemented by a wide variety of stainless steel fittings, including bespoke door handles, which add to the contemporary feel inside the building.

Paraic Curtis, director at HOC UK, comments: “REA has a great reputation and we’ve used them on another scheme so we have a good relationship with the company. The project was difficult because nearly every single door and window was bespoke. There was quite a bit of coordination needed and a lot of sequencing that had to be considered because of the difficulties with the site. REA did everything expected and more, they’re very professional.”

Opal Mews, North West London

June 2018

Steel windows provide mews with an urban aesthetic

Formerly a disused eighties office building, Opal Mews is a development in North West London, by Clifton Securities, which comprises of five contemporary homes. Nominated for a Civic Trust award, the three-and five-bedroom properties with light-filled, open plan interiors owe much of their success to the 60 steel windows and six large double door sets manufactured and installed by Steel Window Association, Member REA Metal Windows.

To create Opal Mews, Clifton Securities stripped the structure back to the concrete frame and removed the original uPVC windows. The new steel windows were manufactured by REA Metal Windows using W40 sections while the door sets are tubular steel with the largest measuring over 2.5m wide and 2.3m high.

Each of the steel frames was hot dip galvanised and then finished in a factory-applied, and maintenance-free, polyester powder coating in RAL 7012 matt grey. This provides a crisp, industrial aesthetic that contrasts well with the various pastel coloured renders to the front facade of the mews. Each of the steel windows is glazed with high-performance argon gas-filled units that have centre pane U-value of 1.2W/m²k.

The W40 system, available from Steel Window Association members, offers full compliance with Part L of the 2013 Building Regulations so may be employed for new build and refurbishment projects. The range includes doorsets and screens and the profile accommodates 28mm thick insulated glazing units. This means triple glazing becomes an option. From a lifecycle perspective, all the steel elements of W40 windows are ultimately completely recyclable. The credentials of steel windows are recognised by the BRE ‘Green Guide’, which gives them an above average B rating.

Simeon Anderson, Development Director of Clifton Securities, comments: “As designers and developers, we like the honest aesthetic of existing buildings and the classic industrial look of steel windows is very appealing in urban environments where prolific natural light is welcome. I went to Liverpool to meet with the team at REA Metal Windows and they were great; really good right through the whole process and they helped us tailor some fantastic solutions.”
