The iconic steel windows of Adelaide House will be updated by the very company that brought them to life 100 years ago – Crittall Windows.

The leading steel window and door manufacturer will return to the prominent building located on the north bank of the Thames after securing a contract to replace the century old windows with a modern steel replica.

As a historic Grade II Listed office block, this isn’t a simple manufacture and install project as strict planning requirements and restrictions need to be met. Therefore, the Corporate W20 EVO windows, fitted with 20mm insulated glass unit, have been chosen for this particular project.

Thanks to their versatility in size and shape, the Corporate W20 EVO’s successfully meet specific building limitations and also replicate the slim sightlines and hardware design of the original products manufactured by Crittall Windows in the early 1920s.

While the aesthetic of the windows remains true to the authentic style created a century ago, advances in window technology mean the performance of the product has evolved immensely.

Russell Ager, MD at Crittall Windows, said: “It is an incredible privilege to be asked to return to Adelaide House a century after we manufactured the windows in this iconic building.

“It is essential the new steel windows perfectly complement the aesthetic of this incredible property and meet the necessary planning requirements, so we have opted for our versatile Corporate W20 EVO windows. Their fantastic appearance and impressive performance will make the perfect addition to the building which is undergoing a huge refurbishment to transform the space into top specification offices on London’s riverside.”
