Hot Rolled Steel Windows & Doors

What Is Hot Rolled Steel?

Hot rolled steel, when used to describe metal products such as windows or doors, refers to the way the metals involved in the product were processed at the mill. Hot rolled steel is steel that is rolled at high temperatures to produce the base material used in these window and door products. Cold rolled steel is essentially hot rolled steel with further processing after its initial hot rolling; the steel is cooled in a storage area to room temperature, then annealed.

The French Steel Company primarily produces its windows and doors from hot rolled steel because the additional processing of cold rolled steel adds unnecessary expense for the vast majority of window or door use cases. Cold rolled steel is more commonly used for more intricately worked steel products, such as filing cabinets, school lockers, or lawn mowers.

Benefits of Hot Rolled Steel

Hot rolled steel costs significantly less than cold rolled steel in similar amounts, as it requires significantly less processing in the mill.

While hot rolled steel is less processed than cold rolled steel, it is not necessarily of inferior product specification or grade when compared with a similar cold rolled steel product. Rather, it may have a comparatively limited set of surface finishes and may fall outside of stricter dimensional tolerances, but these stricter tolerances are rarely required in normal architecture.
