Aluminium Windows

Aluminum windows are windows where the case or frame is aluminum instead of wood, vinyl or some other material. They are among the most popular window types, especially for commercial and industrial buildings. With the exception of wood, aluminum was one of the first materials used in the manufacture of windows, especially in the residential sector. Other materials have come along that are considered better options for one reason or another, but aluminum is still widely used. They can be used in houses and even skyscrapers to create that special look. The result is often a stunning bay window look that can appear as if one or more sides of the structure are made almost entirely of glass. This is one of the hallmarks of aluminum cases.

What are some advantages of Alumium Windows?

One of the advantages of aluminum windows is that they can be significantly less expensive than other window frames. For example, like wood, wooden frames can cost much more than aluminum windows and require careful maintenance. Plastic frames like PVC can be cheaper than aluminum. However, PVC frames are more likely to deteriorate over time and can therefore be more expensive in the long run.

Aluminum windows can last up to 30 years. Because aluminum is much more resistant to external influences than other frames and is therefore less likely to warp or rot. Aluminum also has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it more difficult to dent.

Aluminum windows are not only durable, they are also easy to care for. Different surfaces may require more maintenance than others, but in general, a quick cleaning of the glass and frame every 2-4 months will help remove dirt and keep your windows shiny.

Because of the way aluminum is manufactured, these windows can easily meet your exact design specifications while maintaining the material's inherent strength. In addition, there is a wide range of customization available, from glazing options to finishes in a variety of colours.

aluminum windows can easily achieve up to a 60 percent improvement in heat gain and loss through windows when combined with a thermal break, rivaling more expensive wood and PVC equivalents. This is in part due to the introduction of polyimide technology, which has taken the energy efficiency of aluminum glazing to a whole new level, bringing significant benefits to home and business owners looking to save on energy bills.

Aluminum is also a truly sustainable product. It is 100% recyclable and non-toxic, leaving a minimal environmental footprint. Recycling the aluminum itself requires only five percent of the energy originally used to produce it.
