Everything you need to Know About Aluminium Windows and Doors

Posted: Friday, 19 August 2016 @ 12:51

Many people haven’t heard of aluminium windows and doors, and if they have they aren’t aware of the full benefits. When it comes to choosing energy efficient home furnishings, many homeowners are drawn to PVC double glazing – but modern aluminium windows can also help to save energy and are ideal for a number of property styles.

This guide is for anyone interested in new windows and doors who wants to fully research all options available. It will tell you everything you need to know about aluminium doors and windows so you can decide whether they are right for you.

Why Aluminium?

As a material, it makes total sense to rely on aluminium. It is used in every part of the building and construction industry, and is considered the world’s most sustainable building material. It is highly durable and isn’t prone to corrosion or other issues experienced with other materials – so it requires very little maintenance.

Aluminium is the perfect material for windows and doors, as it’s exceptionally strong yet can be formed into any shape. For this reason, aluminium windows are slimline and offer a lot less frame and a higher proportion of glass. This gives a contemporary appearance, which is why aluminium windows and doors are often chosen for modern buildings and offices.

Additionally, choosing aluminium is an environmentally friendly choice. It is a recyclable metal and retains much of its qualities when it is recycled – this is why it is a sustainable building material. Choosing aluminium windows will have a lesser environmental impact than choosing PVCu, and you won’t have to worry about timber coming from sustainable sources if you were having timber frames fitted. Aluminium is always a sound environmental choice.

Energy Efficient

Aluminium windows and doors are some of the most technologically advanced in the industry, which means they are also efficient at keeping heat in and keeping the cold out. The design has excellent thermal properties, thanks to a polyamide thermal break which offers improved insulation. Aluminium windows are designed to fight heat loss.

Choice and Flexibility

Aluminium frames are stylish and are available in over 200 colours. You can also choose your own window handles, and there is also an option for locks and glazing. Aluminium windows and doors are fully customisable so they can suit your property, not the other way around.
