Add the quality touch to your building project with aluminium

Aluminium has continued to grow in popularity when manufacturing doors and windows; the material is not only popular for industrial and commercial use, either, as more and more homeowners are investing in secure, well-insulated, affordable aluminium doors. As a fabricator, you will be able to work with the customisable and functional material to create windows and doors that your customers will love for the seal of quality they bring to a home or business property. Here are just some of the hallmarks of that quality:

Slim design

PVC and timber frames typically have to be wide in order to be efficient and effective, but this bucks the modern trend for minimalist frames and design. Aluminium’s strength and durability, as well as its thermal properties, are enjoyed from relatively small amounts of the material and this means that it can be used to create very slim window and door frames. The minimalist frame not only offers aesthetic benefits when looking directly at the frame. It means that you can pay greater attention to what is beyond the window because the frame will not block your eyeline.

Improved lifespan

PVC windows normally boast a life of up to 20 years, with warranties that match this timeframe. However, quality aluminium frames can offer up to 30 years of continuous use. This is because aluminium is more resistant to environmental damage caused by the wind, rain, and frost. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio, too, so is much less likely to become dented or damaged as a result of physical damage.

Flexible design

Frames can be created in any colour and according to any design requirements. They also require very little maintenance in order to enjoy a full lifespan, which means that there is less need to have to change a design because of damage. Your customers can select from a range of any colour, and you can even create frames that have a different colour profile inside to outside.

Energy efficient products

Aluminium frames are more energy efficient than their PVCu counterparts. This means that you can minimise the environmental impact that your buyers have, and they can also enjoy lower energy expenditure because of the thermal properties that are exhibited by aluminium window and door frames. The material’s environmental credentials are further enhanced by the fact that aluminium is 100% recyclable. It is also non-toxic and its use has very little negative impact on the environment.

Aluminium is the quality choice for creating reliable door and window frames that look great too. It can be finished in a range of colours, can be extremely thin, and it has very little negative thermal and environmental impact. At Aluminium Door Supplies, we can provide the base aluminium, as well as all the other materials and hardware that you need in order to craft high-quality and appealing aluminium doors and windows.
