Funny that you should ask.
It is one of the most misunderstood components in the construction of steel windows and door. In almost all cases they are NOT made out of steel.
What you see is paint, not steel, but then again you never see the steel of steel windows either. Rust is bad. Rusting all the way through is really bad.

During my lengthy career in the business, clients and their architects have asked me for unfinished steel. I have always rebuffed them. The surfaces on the inside can be maintained with periodic cleaning and oiling. It is like steel cancer.
What’s up with glazing be on steel windows and doors?
Unpainted aluminum will never look like unpainted steel. No way, no how. Now some manufacturers offer steel glazing be as screw-on be with exposed screws.
This can be charming if you are a deconstructionist, but not so if you are drawn to steel windows because of their thin, sleek glazings and minimalist aesthetic. Aluminum glazing be are the de-facto choice because they can be extruded into metal shapes that can engage with mounting clips under the glass that hide the fasteners and create a more refined appearance. The glazing be that capture the glass into the frame need to be mounted after the glass is installed.

Aluminum on the other hand can be painted in long sticks and cut to size as needed, but leave a shiny edge. Glazing be for steel window s are by de four individual strips of metal that are snapped or screwed onto the steel frames. They are butted together, not mitered because they are almost impossible to install with miters.
This creates a steel window with visible ts that has a perimeter frame-to-sash t, a sash-to-glazing bead t, and four butted glazing bead end ts. This ery problem is compounded by the fact that the glazing be are never perfectly on plane with the inside edge of the sash.

Also, they are almost impossible to align perfectly to each other in plane at the butt ends. This butt problem exposes the silver aluminum ends and can look amateurish. If you are fastidious you can take paint and touch-up each individual t.
A 12 year growth and harvesting cycle in managed forests and vinegar-based processing make it the most environmentally friendly wood in the world. However, if you want to, it can be left natural or stained to create a wonderfully warm aesthetic if that floats your boat.
No butts allowed! The glazing frame is the only thing you see on the interior of the sash.
The only visible t is the sash-to-frame t. NO butt ts, NO sash-to-glazing bead t. This is how you create the truly sleek appearance that steel windows and doors promise. We are committed to the environment.
