Thinking sustainably

Sustainability is a decisive factor for contemporary building design in addition to function and appearance. 

This is why the durability of the materials also plays a major role in windowsdoors and facades. Steel brings a great deal of added value here. Its material substance makes it extremely durable and weather-resistant. For building certifications, which are becoming increasingly important, the durability of steel systems is assessed with a lifespan of up to 100 years, depending on the country in Europe.

Jansen steel elements are also durable when it comes to handling and maintenance: Due to their load-bearing capacity, which has been proven in durability tests, these are predestined for heavily frequented buildings such as public buildings.  Steel, a solid material, helps to ensure that long-lasting doors and windows can be used for many years, even with frequent use. Maintenance intervals are less frequent, but this also depends on the area of use. Maintenance intervals for fire doors, for example, are regulated by law rather than prescribed by the element or system provider.
