Crittall windows? Heavens, that's a blast from the past. I didn't realise that the firm was still going.
My grandparents' house had them and my recollection is that condensation was always a problem due to their steel construction.
I've always viewed them as yet another architectural abomination from the twenties and thirties.

Keep up, Carruthers! All of that 30s stuff is back in style big time. (And it is possible to double glaze Crittall windows nowadays, too!).
