Aluminium isn’t what it used to be. Known for being expensive, inflexible and unsightly for most commercial building projects, things have most certainly changed.
With advances in technology and manufacturing processes, aluminium fabrication is now much more accessible, cost-effective and can and is used for many different products across a wide range of sectors.
Aluminium is now also a popular choice with commercial builders and on commercial building projects too.
At Crucial Engineering, we are most certainly part of the Aluminium fan club! It boasts many benefits and can be used and fabricated to suit a range of needs.
When it comes to aluminium fabricated windows and doors some of these benefits include:
Strength. Aluminium is a robust and sturdy material, yet ultra-light to manoeuvre and work with. Due to its strength, when it comes to using aluminium as the frame/casement for windows, it can hold more glass without the need to increase the thickness of the frame, unlike its frame counterparts. In this sense, these manufactured frames allow for more light to enter the home, are more natural looking in appearance, and can help conserve energy.
Minimal movement. A big plus for commercial builders is the minimal movement aluminium offers, especially when windows and doors are known to expand and contract. Aluminium isn’t affected by temperature changes so offers much more stability than UPVC and wood – which tend to twist and warp.
A choice of colour finishes. Specialised aluminium fabricators will be able to powder coat aluminium frames to any colour. Helping to match to all and any requirements, the hard-wearing finish is also made to last and unlike wood, will never need repainting!
Thermal efficiencies. Aluminium is great for insulating windows and doors, keeping the cold out and the condensation at bay, helping to reduce the amount of energy a household consumes.
Being environmentally friendly. Aluminium is 100% recyclable and also needs just 5% of the initial energy used to create it.
Slimline frames. Big bulky window and door frames can be a thing of the past with aluminium. Aluminium fabrication manufactures much sleeker frames, and a more modern look, making aluminium the best choice for commercial builders and modern living developments.
Long lasting performance. Aluminium doesn’t rust, rot or bend, offering complete stability and a longer lifespan for windows and doors – up to 45 years to be exact!
A range of shapes and sizes. UK aluminium fabricators can mould and shape aluminium to suit any window style imaginable – fabricating everything from tilt and turns, to standard casements, sashes and more.
Increased security. Aluminium offers incredible strength where the highest quality multi-point locking mechanisms can be installed.
