The introduction of polyamide technology in recent years takes aluminium doors and windows it to a new level, it offers big improvements in thermal insulation. So thermally broken aluminium windows and doors use a barrier in this way to improve insulation and energy efficiency.
The thermal break in aluminium is a barrier that breaks the aluminium to aluminium contact from the inside to the outside of the window. Today’s technology means the thermal barrier conducts up to 1,000 times less heat than aluminium.
Aluminium is arguably the most sustainable building material in the world and is highly recyclable. When the old Wembley Stadium was demolished, 96% of the aluminium was reclaimed and recycled.
The recycling process creates high quality aluminium which loses none of the physical properties of primary aluminium and uses just 5% of the energy it takes to create primary aluminium. This is why aluminium is generally regarded as the world’s most sustainable building material.
Aluminium framed windows and doors are more expensive than their uPVC counterparts, however we are always happy to quote on all the options available to you, so that you can make the final decision.
Aluminium Window Benefits
Because of the unique properties of aluminium it is incredibly formable and can be bent or shaped into innumerable architectural designs. It is also very durable and highly resistant to corrosion caused by modern industrial pollutants, requiring little long-term maintenance. The lifespan of aluminium products is measured in decades rather than years.
At KJM we use the best Sheerline and Smarts Alitherm Series aluminium systems for excellent durability and longevity for your home. While this is a selection of their benefits, they offer plenty more for your home and comfort.
With the most popular colour choices of white, grey (RAL 7016), silver, black or brown frames, KJM’s aluminium windows and doors are an ideal way to enhance your home, whatever the style.
If you would like to visit our showroom in Andover, Hampshire, we would be pleased to show you examples of our aluminium systems and the vast array of colours available to you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are aluminium windows better than uPVC?
Aluminium is a stronger material than uPVC. It is often used in commercial doors and windows because it is regarded as a far more durable material and stands the test of time in high usage situations. The powder-coating is also extremely durable and designed to withstand some pretty extreme conditions, even most tests in severe exposure categories.
Are aluminium windows any good?
Aluminium windows come with thinner frames than uPVC and can replicate Crittall windows that were originally developed in 1884 by an Essex ironmonger Francis Crittall. The thin sightlines suit modern conversions of industrial buildings and make larger pane windows more appealing when a view does not want to be obscured or maximum light is required in the home. Science says aluminium windows offer slightly reduced sound levels, due to the thermal break within the extrusions.
What are the benefits of aluminium windows?
Aluminium windows are environmentally friendly. Aluminium is indefinitely recyclable, so when you recycle it, it creates very high quality new aluminium. The recycling process uses about 5% of the energy needed to create the initial material. They are also easier to clean than uPVC windows because they have less static electricity, so don’t attract dust. A simple wipe down with hot soapy water is all that required.
Aluminium windows are far less bulky than uPVC frames, although considerably more expensive. Compared to other materials it is very durable, the life of your windows are more dependent on the powder coated finish than the actual material itself.
How much does an aluminium window cost?
This is a difficult question to answer because there are so many variables to determine a price. These include: size of the window, openings, style, glass choice, installed cost or supply only and heavy duty commercial systems. Thin windows and standard frames will also have a different cost.
Quoting is easy, all we need is a photograph of the existing window(s) and some sizes. We can advise and price for you without a home visit in most cases. It is worth mentioning that aluminium can be as much as 50%-90% (the higher figure with heritage systems) than uPVC.
What does polyamide technology achieve?
Polyamide technology has recently been used in aluminium windows to improve their high performance. Insulation and energy resistance are enhanced by creating thermal breaks in the aluminium. On our Smart system windows, we can currently offer U-values as low as 0.9 W/m2K with triple glazing and up to 1.3 W/m2K with double glazing.
What standards do aluminium windows meet?
Before installation, we ensure that our aluminium windows meet product standards. All our products are high quality and suitable for home installation. When testing our Smart system windows, we found that they meet air infiltration, water infiltration and structural integrity standards. When looking at locking mechanisms, we have tested our multipoint locking systems for security, durability and warmth every year.
