The strength and distinct feel of aluminum has made it timeless and the choice of architects and homeowners alike for windows and doors. Aluminum windows are developed not as a low-cost alternative to other material options but rather to address specific design requirements. As a result, aluminum windows have the flexibility to suit a multitude of projects ranging from custom homes to light commercial applications.
Extremely popular with architects, aluminum windows help accentuate the clean lines of modern design. Light yet strong, aluminum windows can be configured into a wide variety of combinations. The narrowness of the frame places the focus on the glass and subsequently, the view it offers. Homes with large custom windows often utilize aluminum frames to facilitate indoor/outdoor living.
Advantages of Aluminum Frames
- Slim Profile
- Narrow sight lines
- Low Maintenance
Aluminum frames are available in anodized or baked-on finishes for long lasting color. Mechanically sealed and joined corners stay square and true over years of use. While aluminum is water resistant, it can suffer corrosion from salt water and salt air so it's not recommended in coastal areas.
Compared with vinyl, fiberglass and wood frames, aluminum conducts heat and cold the most. To reduce heat flow, some manufactures offer thermally improved aluminum frames in select regions. Thermally improved aluminum windows are equipped with thermal breaks to separate the interior and exterior surfaces and improve energy efficiency.
