So, what are the advantages of using Aluminium windows and doorsin your project? Hopefully, this guide helps you understand more of the benefits:
Far less frame
Aluminium is a seriously tough material; tough enough that you don’t need as much of it when constructing frames for doors and windows. As such, any frames that use them offer a more panoramic view of the outdoors: you’ll be able to use larger glass panes that offer a better perspective of the outside surrounding areas.
Some of our frames are small enough that you’ll almost forget they’re there! What’s more, you can enjoy the views safe in the knowledge that the window’s support is just as strong as it would be if another material had been used for the frame.

Durability and resistance
Aluminium frames are seriously tough: there’s a reason the metal’s used for in building projects across the world! We’re not saying that UPVC or PVCU frames aren’t tough – they can easily last for 15-20 years and we’d definitely recommend them in the case of certain projects – but they can’t be compared to aluminium.
Frames that use aluminium as the base can easily last for 20-30 years and they’re far less likely to suffer from weather damage. No warping, no rotting and far less chance of suffering any dents. In terms of toughness and longevity, it’s hard to beat aluminium.
Aluminium is flexible, versatile and durable
One of the more under-estimated characteristics of Aluminium frames is how many styles of design can be tailored to suit the project. It’s easy to change both the internal and external colours, and the aluminium metal can be adjusted to slot into any style of building.
Though it was initially used more in commercial projects, these characteristics have made aluminium more and more popular in domestic projects over the past few years.
It’s very energy efficient
Though aluminium always worked effectively, the introduction of polyamide technology has massively increased its capabilities in terms of thermal performance. If you’re looking to keep a lid on your energy bills, then aluminium frames are a great option for you. Windows in particular can really increase performance in heat gain and loss: indeed, combining them with a heat break can lead to gains of as much as 60 per cent.
Safe in strength
Aluminium frames are tough. We’ve already mentioned the strength of Aluminium and this translates well to the security of your home: it’s simply a much harder material to manipulate and when combined with resistant glazing, you’ll be able to enjoy real peace of mind.
Great value for money
All of these great characteristics might make you think that aluminium frames are going to be more expensive, but that’s actually not the case. In many situations, it can be one of the most economical options.
This will of course vary, depending on the project and you should take the time to get a quote from a professional manufacturer. However, you may find that Aluminium windows and doors are more budget-friendly than you think.
