The advantages of steel systems
Sophisticated, stable, safe, sustainable, versatile, noble, varied – we assign these and many more attributes to «our» steel. Let us surprise you: we provide informative and multi-faceted insights into the topic.
Steel is safe
Steel is inherently more fire resistant than other materials, which makes it a safe choice for windows, doors and façades where fire protection is key. We therefore offer fire-tested systems up to EI90, which include all elements such as glass, hinges, fittings, and accessories. Due to its strength, steel is also the ideal solution for burglar and bullet resistance. As a result, Jansen steel systems are often used when buildings must meet high security standards. This is the case, for example, with parliament buildings, museums, banks, or penitentiaries.
Steel is noble, filigree and versatile
Whether in new buildings or renovations, steel allows design freedom like no other material. Thanks to the strength of the material, extremely slim profiles can be processed which, despite their filigree structure, can support large glass elements. This creates maximum transparency and incidence of light, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces. With material variants such as stainless steel or corten, steel offers further design options to create a unique room ambience. In addition, steel can be shaped extremely freely, which creates additional design freedom. In short: steel brings functionality and design into harmony.
Steel is sustainable
The CO2 footprint of a building can be reduced with the use of steel. Steel requires significantly less process energy during production compared to alternative materials. The material is also extremely robust and durable. As a result, steel profiles require little maintenance and replacement over time. At the end of its life cycle, steel can be recycled indefinitely without adding other materials and without losing quality. In our EPDs, these advantages of steel are included in the evaluation. Steel is therefore the material most likely to meet the requirements of the «Green Deal».
