The look of your windows and doors will play a huge part in defining any property, and they will describe the style and level of attractiveness. Aluminium has been used extensively for high end retail developments in recent years, and its success is being picked up on by house designers and builders. Both a traditional or contemporary ambience can be created with aluminium double glazing. An emerging favourite is the flush look where opening and fixed glass elements are smooth and indistinguishable. Large areas of seamless glazing with slim frames, are a popular feature of new homes and businesses creating an excellent first impression.
2. Thermal Efficiency
Aluminium offers outstanding heat retention and thermal properties for maximum performance. This of course saves money on fuel bills as well as keeping the home comfortable in the cooler months. The carbon footprint of the home or business is also significantly lowered by effective insulation.
3. Unit Quality
The way the windows and doors from reputable specialists are designed and constructed, makes them exceptionally tough, resilient and secure. Aluminium door frames in particular including multi fold doors are stronger structurally than other types of door, enabling a wide range of versatile door and entrance designs. Quality can vary from one supplier to the next, and sometimes other materials are combined, with some simply consisting of timber with an aluminium skin.
When it comes to security, it’s hard to beat aluminium doors as well as windows, as they retain their strength throughout the seasons. Freezing conditions will not cause aluminium to become brittle and so vulnerable.
The cost of aluminium windows and doors is less than timber but a little more than UPVC, although good quality aluminium will give outstanding performance. This recyclable material is also available in a selection of stunning RAL colours.
