Aluminium Windows and Doors general information
Aluminium is a lightweight, high-strength material that is used is virtually every facet of the modern construction industry; from patio doors in homes to curtain walling on the tallest sky scrapers. Aluminium windows and doors are the material of choice for architects and specifiers on commercial applications and increasingly popular with home-owners.
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.
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 also uses just 5% of the energy it takes to create primary aluminium. This is why aluminium in 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 Thermal Breaks
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.
