What are the Advantages of Aluminium Windows?

Windows

Aluminium is a great option for window frames and front doors, that is becoming increasingly popular for glazed doors.

This is due to the lightweight robust profile that is capable of hosting wide spans of glass.

Salop Glass are Shropshire’s leading providers of aluminium windows, and here we will talk you through the four main advantages of choosing this material.

Aluminium frames offer slim sight-lines plus improved security and high thermal efficiency with the smooth finish and flexibility in colour making them a popular for contemporary properties.

4 Reasons to Choose Aluminium

  1. Colour – Aluminium frames are available in any RAL colour using a process known as powder coating. Architects like to use greys and blacks, especially for contemporary new builds and give glazing a wow-factor. You also have the choice of dual colours, with a different colour used on both the inside and outside of your windows. This means you can match your window frames to an established property decor.
  2. Low Maintenance – Aluminium is a durable material that does not require much upkeep with a simple wipe from a damp soapy cloth recommended for cleaning. This makes it a great option for exposed locations such as an estuary or properties near the coast. With a pre-anodised finish, the frames are equipped to resist harsh elements such as salty air from coastal locations.
  3. Slim Profiles – Aluminium profiles are easy to work with, with their thin profiles offering neat, square edges that can be easily achieved. Alternatively, PVCu or wood profiles have much wider frames. Aluminium can also transform a period-style property and give it a modern twist plus an architectural feature worth shouting about.
  4. Long Life Span – Aluminium frames have a very long life span, which can be anywhere between 40-60 years plus they are 100% recyclable at the end of their service life.
