Commercial & Domestic Aluminium Double Glazing
Aluminium double glazing is becoming increasingly popular within the domestic arena for reasons such as freedom of design and colour. Due to its versatile properties, aluminium can accommodate many unusual shapes and styles for an individual effect. Black and slate grey are frequently chosen colours and are just two of a large range of RAL and BS options available with aluminium frames from First Choice Aluminium H&P. Strength and resilience are a major factor when deciding on aluminium double glazing especially when greater security is required. This material will not become brittle and susceptible to deterioration during extreme cold weather as with some other double glazing products.
Added to their high quality aluminium range including sliding folding doors and curtain walling for domestic or commercial use, First Choice Aluminium H&P offer aluminium secondary double glazing. This is sometimes a preferred glazing option especially in conservation areas, where there are listed buildings that need their existing windows protecting. The slim, unobtrusive aluminium frames can be fitted onto the windows of the property without spoiling or damaging the original and will ensure a more robust and well preserved structure.
