STATEMENT ON RECYCLABILITY
Hot rolled steel windows made by SWI members are manufactured from specifically
designed steel window sections made of 100% recycled steel. Due to
the natural resilience of steel over most other window materials available,
steel windows can remain functional for several generations before
any need to upgrade window performance through contemporary window
technologies, such as glass, weatherstripping, etc. When century old
steel windows have fulfilled their original role, it is important
to know that their value can continue because they can be recycled
back into service in the steel market in various forms and functions.
The environmental benefits of using recycled steel can be found on
the steel web site at www.recycle-steel.org.
