Aluminium –  Why is it a great choice for windows & doors?

An Introduction to Aluminium Doors and Windows:

There are many different materials used in windows and doors, from uPCV to a variety of metals, but aluminium always seems to come out as the top preference for customers, but why is this?

Aluminium is the most abundant metal on the planet. It offers solidity and architectural strength, particularly in larger configurations, making it the perfect material for windows and doors, no matter the size. In fact, there are many benefits to using aluminium, including energy efficiency, durability and it being environmentally friendly.

It’s said that aluminium windows and doors have a life expectancy of up to 30 years, which is considerably more than other materials! This is because aluminium alone is already incredibly strong, but when used alongside other materials, it can become stronger.

This is exceptional when it comes to resistance to weather and temperatures. In fact, aluminium actually increases in strength the colder it gets, making it even more durable in those cold UK winters and its strength-to-weight ratio is high, which means it’s much more durable than other materials.

Environmentally Friendly
