What are the Advantages of Aluminium Windows?


Aluminium is a great option for window frames and front doors. However, it is also increasingly popular for glazed doors. This popularity comes from aluminium’s lightweight robust profile that is capable of hosting wide spans of glass. As well as this, aluminium frames offer slim sight lines, as well as improved security and high energy efficiency.

4 Reasons to Choose Aluminium

Salop Glass are Shropshire’s leading provider of aluminium windows. In this article, we will talk you through the four main advantages associated with this design.


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 frame’s established decor.

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.

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.

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.
