Aluminum windows and doors can be configured into a wide variety of combinations. The narrowness of the frame places the focus on the glass and subsequently, the view it offers. Multi-panel door systems are often made with aluminum frames to facilitate indoor/outdoor living. aluminum frames are available in anodized or baked-on finishes for long lasting color. Sealed, mechanically joined corners stay square and true over years of use.
Aluminum windows have an extremely long life and are highly resistant to outside weather elements. Unlike many other windows and doors, they will not swell, crack, split or warp over the time and ensures an extended product life. Aluminum is not recommended in Wet places like beach homes for while the material is water resistant, it can suffer corrosion from salt water and salt air. The corrosion affects hardware operation and frame performance. Aluminum windows and doors are robust and virtually maintenance free due to its corrosion resistant property.
Aluminum windows and doors contribute an excellent thermal and sound insulation which meets current building regulations. The efficiency of thermal performance in aluminum is comparatively higher than timber or PVC. An aluminum frame which is fabricated with high-performance aluminum is able to exceed energy efficiency standards and can achieve improvements in heat gain and heat loss through windows by 60%. The use of thermal barriers in aluminum framed windows vastly improves insulating ability. Polyurethane is placed between the frame to create a thermal barrier. Thermal breaks are employed in many modern aluminum windows to combat the problem of condensation and increase the windows’ energy efficiency.
Aluminum is environmentally sustainable material; it offers one of the highest recycling rates compare to any other metal. The recycling process of aluminum requires just five percent of initial energy. This inherent property differentiates it from other framing materials and reinforces its sustainable credential.
The aluminum provides design flexibility which is only limited by your imagination. The metal strength and flexibility allows it to manufacture any product according to custom specifications. It provides an endless array of customization option with finishes and glasses.
