As the rise in popularity of aluminium double glazing continues unabated, we look at why this might be the case. Once the main choice for commercial buildings and shop fronts, the advantages of aluminium for doors and windows have come to the fore in the last few decades. Consequently, aluminium is being found more and more on residential properties, as people see how attractive these systems can be. The usual perception was that aluminium came in only one colour, namely silver, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth nowadays.
New methods and technology in manufacturing, fabrication and coatings mean that aluminium windows and doors have taken the lead when it comes to a chic, functional solution. Architects and designers have long realised how versatile aluminium is as a building material, allowing the creation of some outstanding structures.
The strength of aluminium, means that lighter and slimmer frames are possible, without compromising on this strength. Ideal for state of the art design in windows, and bi-folding and sliding doors, aluminium can easily support large expanses of glass for additional light. The slim frames are stable and resistant to problems of twisting and flexing with variable heat.
The vast choice of non fading, powder coated colours and finishes available for aluminium can last 20 to 30 years without needing any maintenance. A wipe over with a damp cloth is all it requires along with a quick check to see that there are no obstructions such as stones on tracks etc.
Aluminium can be extremely thermally efficient especially with use of a thermal break, and is infinitely recyclable. It is an amazing fact that around 70% of all the aluminium ever produced is still in use today! What’s more, recycling this material only uses 5% of the total energy used to extract it from the raw material.
