For the manufacture of windows, an alloy of aluminium with magnesium and silicon is used. It gives the material high strength and corrosion resistance. The use of thermal break (thermal insulating polymer inserts) in the design of the profile made it possible to reduce the thermal conductivity to acceptable values.
Advantages of aluminium windows
- high strength & low weight;
- durability & wear resistance;
- service life is at least 80 years;
- operation in a wide temperature range;
- resistance to physical and chemical influences. As well as ultraviolet radiation, corrosion, high humidity and other factors;
- the ability to create sliding systems and window surfaces of a large area;
- easy to clean and the minimal need for service;
- lightweight and high strength of the material allows you to use a profile of a smaller width while increasing the area of glazing and lighting;
- compliance with all environmental and fire safety standards.
Non-thermal Aluminium Glazing
- Cheaper than thermal
- Lightweight design
- Thin profile
- Cooler due to profile features and lack of double-glazed windows (or the use of a single-chamber thin glass)
Thermal Aluminium Glazing
- More expensive due to the use of extra materials and fittings
- Warmer due to thermal break in the profile (two/three-chamber double-glazed windows)
- Less noise from the street than with a cold type of glazing
- Heavier due to increased weight of the profile, fittings and the number of glasses.
Installation of aluminium windows.
The high-quality installation of aluminium windows is a guarantee of a comfortable temperature in the premises. The installation process is time-consuming, but similar designs have a long service life. It is best to entrust the installation to specialists with experience in this field. Poor installation leads to drafts and a noticeable reduction in the operational life.
