ALLUMINIUM V UPVC
Normally we associate aluminium doors and windows to commercial buildings but for many reasons, aluminium doors and windows are gaining in popularity.
The lifespan of aluminium doors and windows is 20-30 years as opposed to UPVC that normally have a lifespan of 15-20 years.
Aluminium is more resistant to the outside elements and less likely to warp or rot , it is also less likely to dent because of its weight to strength ratio.
A framework made of aluminium can now come in a multitude of colours making them a lot more appealing to homeowners.
There are many options for aluminium windows:
**Aluminium casement windows
**Aluminium louvre windows
**Aluminium tilt and turn windows
**Slim, ultra-thin windows
Aluminium windows are energy efficient, they can easily achieve improvements in heat gain and heat loss through windows by as much as 60 per cent when combined with a thermal break.
Modern architecture dictates that UPVC windows and doors are becoming too bulky, aluminium glazing allows customers minimal, slim profiles that maximise external views – ideal for those wishing to make the most of their countryside landscape, for example.
Aluminium slim lines also allow for greater flexibility for all types of window frames as the aluminium can be worked into and around the slimmest of a framework. It is a fully sustainable product - it’s 100% recyclable and non-toxic, leaving a minimal ecological footprint.
Recycling aluminium itself requires just five per cent of the initial energy consumed to create it.
