Top features of aluminium windows for your home

PCL takes a look at some of the reasons why aluminium windows are great for your home.

There are so many options when it comes to windows and doors for your home; different materials and methods to help you create the perfect look for your home, both in terms of performance and aesthetics.

You may find it difficult to decide between the likes of aluminium or uPVC for your windows; in particular, aluminium windows have improved hugely over the last few years or so. With this in mind, aluminium has become particularly popular lately for a number of reasons. Not only have materials evolved and improved, but people’s preferences have changed too.

Sleek, modern design

The minimal framework that comes with having aluminium windows allows for more glass, resulting in more natural light coming in and perhaps a wider view of the outside. These slimmer frames are still able to support the weight of the window. The aluminium window is a very practical and lightweight solution while looking great both indoors and out.

There is also a huge variation in design; with its low maintenance materials, you are able to choose a style that suits your home perfectly without worrying about any wear and tear.

Highly resistant

It’s important when choosing windows for your home to opt for a durable solution. Highly resistant to rust, corrosion and extreme weather conditions, aluminium windows will not warp, bend or crack. Due to this, your new windows will have a great lifespan; maybe even more so than uPVC windows.
Thanks to an advance in polyamide technology, aluminium now has the ability to be strong and more durable than ever.

Thermally efficient

Since aluminium has greatly improved over the last few years, so has its thermal properties. An aluminium window is now a very thermally efficient solution. When teamed with a thermal break, this particular type of window can reduce heat loss from your home by 60%.

Sustainable material

Opting to have this type of window in your home means you could even be having a positive impact on the environment. Aluminium is 100% recyclable and requires only 5% of the initial energy to recycle it. Choosing to have aluminium windows fitted means you are investing in a sustainable material that can be recycled over and over again, without compromise on quality.

Recycling 1 tonne of aluminium saves 9 tonnes of CO2 emissions, while this might not mean much, 1 tonne of CO2 equals driving 2800 miles. By choosing a sustainable material for your windows, you are playing a part in helping the environment.

Different options for your aluminium windows

There are so many different choices when it comes to design and style. You might want to invest in a combination of aluminium with either uPVC or timber, while you also have the option of other components such as integrated blinds.

Windows from PCL have sound insulation and integrated locking with a variety of designs, from modern square edges to more rounded traditional finishes. With your choice of premium handles and other extras, find your perfect aluminium windows today.
