fortheirsteel5If you’ve been considering investing in steel doors and steel windows for your home or business, you’re probably already aware of the added safety benefits they can bring you. (Especially considering a home break-in happens every 13 seconds, and 30% of them happen due to unlocked residential windows and doors.) So since you already know a bunch about steel windows and doors, here are some things you DIDN’T know about steel!

Your car is made of it – From the door latches, to the safety buckles, to the safety cage itself, your car is made of the real strong stuff. Even the motor is made from steel! You can be sure that this makes your car as safe as possible, because steel is resilient, fire-proof, and…

It’s highly recyclable – In 2006, over 14 million cars were recycled for their steel. In fact, that same recycled steel was used to make 13.5 million new cars. In North America, more than 80 million tons of steel are recycled every year. That’s a lot of cars!

It can save you money – Because steel is so well insulated, it not only can save you from one of the 1,240,000 house fires reported yearly, it can also save you money on your energy bill. By installing steel windows and doors, you can save anywhere from $126 to $465 every year.

With more reasons than ever to take advantage of the safety and stability of steel, ask your local retailer how to get your custom steel windows installed today.
