The discussion around what window systems should be installed on new developments, particularly condominiums or multi-level residential developments, is never ending. With aluminum, PVC, timber, fiberglass, aluclad and steel, Architects and Specifiers have multiple choices when making that all-important decision.

So why choose aluminum windows?

Here are some of the main advantages of choosing aluminum.

Thermally Efficient

Aluminum windows have come a long way over the past 10 years. Designed with thermally conductive insulating profiles and foams, the modern aluminium window produces excellent thermal values. They exceed passive house standards, meeting all the requirements of Zero Energy Buildings. These thermal breaks eliminate condensation, reduce heat loss and save energy (up to 85%), while considerably reducing CO2-emissions.

Strength & Durability

Although it is lightweight, there are few stronger, more durable materials than aluminum. Its’ strength allows designers to incorporate extra-large sashes, maximizing the intake of natural light. With multiple opening opportunities and robust slimline profiles, Architects and Specifiers have complete flexibility in their design options.
Due to its durability, aluminum can easily withstand all weather conditions without expanding or contracting in the changing climates. It comes with a life span in excess of 50 years.

Eco Friendly / Sustainable

There is a global push towards a greener economy and the construction industry is a huge factor in this. Building and construction is responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions in the world. The construction industry is set to double by 2060 so there is a huge emphasis on changing the whole life cycle of building design, construction and demolition.

Aluminum has a life cycle that very few materials can match. It is infinitely recyclable, meaning it can be recycled over-and-over without losing its properties or quality. In fact, about 75% of all the aluminum ever produced is still in use.

Not only that, recycled aluminum uses just 5% of the energy required for producing primary metal, saving an enormous 95%. It should be the material of choice to meet the demands of climate-conscious consumers. Aluminum windows can help to achieve a credible sustainability rating with LEED.

Available Finishes

Aluminum windows are available with hundreds of high-quality powder coated colors, textures and shades. Dual colored windows are also available allowing architects to match the internal and external aesthetics of the building.

Aluminim windows are the ideal solution for harsh climates. They require minimal maintenance and can come with a guarantee of up to 30 years.
