Aluminium windows and doors are becoming increasingly popular among home and business owners alike.
From durability to safety, these windows and doors offer an abundance of benefits. Here are our top 6.
1. High Durability
One of the main benefits of aluminium windows and doors is that they are highly durable. They are resistant to the elements and don’t rust.
In addition, they are structurally stronger than other materials such as timber, and are hence recommended for buildings in high-wind areas.
2. Low Cost
Aluminium has a much lower upfront cost than both timber and uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride).
Due to its low maintenance nature and energy efficient properties, aluminium windows and doors will also save you money in the long run.
3. Aesthetic Appeal
Aluminium framed windows and doors are also generally more aesthetically pleasing. They are used often in contemporary architecture as they give buildings a sleek and modern look.
Additionally, aluminium frames can be easily tailored to even the most challenging specifications and can be easily customised in terms of colour and finish.
4. Energy Efficient
In recent years, aluminium has significantly improved in terms of insulation and thermal performance.
When coupled with insulated or double-glazed glass, aluminium windows and doors can greatly reduce temperature loss and minimise cold draughts in your home. This not only improves thermal control, but also helps save you money on your energy bills.
5. Low Maintenance
Aluminium windows and doors are very low maintenance and easy to look after. They do not rust or discolour and you can get away with cleaning them only twice a year with soap and water.
6. Bushfire Safety
When it comes to fire resistance, aluminium windows and doors are your best bet. They offer a much higher BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) rating than alternative materials and are also more resistant to flame damage.
If you live in an area that is high-risk for bushfires, installing aluminium doors and windows is a very good idea.
