Aluminium windows have been a popular choice for many commercial projects, and recently we have noticed an increase in the interest from the domestic market for aluminium window installations.
Over the last few years, aluminium windows have improved greatly in terms of their design, energy efficiency and security. Aluminium not only equals its uPVC counterparts, but they also offer much more design flexibility. This means that homeowners with unusually shaped or oversized windows can use glazing in their homes to create eye-catching features with aluminium frames.
Here are just some of the many benefits of choosing aluminium windows.
Aluminium windows can easily achieve improvements in heat loss and heat gain through windows by as much as 60%. This is due in part to new technology which has taken the overall performance of aluminium windows to a whole new level, it provides these key benefits to home and business owners alike. Who doesn’t like saving on their energy bills?
Want windows that can last for up to 30 years? Choose Aluminium. Due to aluminium being considerably more resistant to the harsh outside elements compared to other frame types; this makes them less likely to warp or rot. Aluminium also has a high strength-to-weight ratio, which means that they are harder to dent or damage.
As a fully sustainable product, aluminium is 100% recyclable and non-toxic which leaves a minimal ecological footprint. Did you know that recycling aluminium only requires 5% of the energy consumed to make it?
Easy to Maintain
Aluminium windows are not only durable, but they also have the bonus advantage of being easy to maintain. Different finishes might require more care than others will, but on the whole, a quick clean of the glass and the frame every 2-4 months will help to keep on top of dirt and keep your windows gleaming.
They can be significantly cheaper than other window frames - for example wooden frames such as timber can cost a whole lot more than aluminium windows and they also require more attentive maintenance. Plastic frames such as uPVC can be cheaper than aluminium, however, they are more likely to degrade over time and can therefore work out as being more costly in the long run.
