All You Need to Know About Aluminium Section Windows
Having been used as a construction material for decades, the importance of aluminium in the fenestration industry is unquestionable. In recent times, architects around the world have been experimenting with aluminium fenestration in both residential and commercial spaces. Aluminium section windows are one such modern-day fenestration solution that are incredibly durable and add a distinctive style element to your house.
Whether you are restoring an old building or constructing a new one, using aluminium windows can instantly lift the charm. Aluminium windows come in several styles and with countless benefits. Before you decide to install an aluminium section window in your home or office, here are a few things you must know.
Benefits of Aluminium Section Windows
The most notable benefits of aluminium section windows include the following –
As a fenestration material, aluminium is incredibly versatile, available in several patterns, shades, and styles. Even if you dislike the silvery metallic sheen of aluminium, you can opt for powder-coated charcoal grey aluminium section windows. Using powder coating, aluminium can be coloured in different accents and shades. Since the metal is paint-friendly, different colours can also be sprayed onto it. Excellent-quality aluminium frames can be used for corner typologies, different window styles, and minimal framing designs. The excellent malleability of aluminium also comes in handy if you want your windows to be of a particular shape or cut.
Common myths suggest that metals like aluminium fail to keep spaces guarded against heat loss. But thanks to thermal-break technology, aluminium windows have thermal breaks built into them that allow for optimal insulation at all times. While this system differs from the traditional chamber style insulation technique, it creates air gaps between the two window frames. Since air does not conduct heat well, it insulates your home excellently. By trying façade shading or installing gaskets, you can further enhance the insulation power of aluminium section windows.
Aluminium is one of the least reactive metals used in construction. It does not react to simple chemicals or weather changes. It also resists corrosion, termite and pests. Since regular wear-and-tear caused by weather changes like humidity and heat do not affect aluminium, you will not need to replace your windows every few years. Moreover, aluminium section windows do not flake, peel off or rot easily, reducing the need for you to repaint them repeatedly.
Metal wastes are incredibly toxic to the environment and need proper recycling before being dumped. Thankfully, aluminium is one of the easiest metals to recycle. If you have to replace your aluminium section windows with a new one, you do not have to worry about damage to the environment. Any recycling company can take care of disposing off aluminium frames properly. For an eco-friendly fenestration, aluminium frames are your best friends.
