Aluminium framed windows emerged as a revival of the mid-century modern style. Reflecting modernity and modernity at that time, aluminium windows today draw attention with their unique designs and durable structure. Although the spaces where aluminium frames are used are limited, they can adapt to almost any space. Due to its strong and thin structure, it is seen in larger and wider window areas. Due to its metal appearance, the design and structure of the building is a very important issue. Generally, this type of window frames has thermal insulation. However, aluminium windows without thermal insulation are only suitable for temperate climates. In regions where severe weather conditions prevail, aluminium window frames with thermal systems are used.
When it comes to cladding, this does not mean that the entire frame will be metal. Some windows are aluminium coated wood. Typically a softwood such as Ponderosa pine gives the window both structural strength and acts as a thermal break. Thin aluminium coating provides protection against external factors.
Unlike other window profiles, it is made entirely of aluminium. Aluminium provides structural strength to the window. With few additions such as thermal break, the entire frame of the window is aluminium. Aluminium window frames with thermal systems can be made in areas where cold climates prevail.
Aluminum Frame Designs
Aluminium windows look like sharp metal. Thus, it adds charm to space. This appearance is achieved through a process called anodization. The colour gamut is not wide, only a few colours are available. However, since Aluminum is a paintable material, the colour options can be increased greatly.
Effective Solution in Hot Weather
Aluminium windows profiles vary according to the area to be used. It is generally preferred in regions with hot climates. However, if you want to use this type of window frame in the design of your home or workplace, it can be thermalized by pouring liquid polyurethane into the extrusion pocket. Thus, you can create thermal insulation without deteriorating its structure while remaining aluminium.
Resistant to Severe Weather Conditions
Although the thermal insulation in aluminium window frames is made later, it is generally resistant to harsh weather conditions. The only problem is that it cannot provide thermal insulation in the place used. However, thanks to the material to be added to the system, thermal insulation is now possible.
Ease of Maintenance and Cleaning
Many window frames are not weatherproof. In addition, it can be damaged in many conditions such as rain, wind, snow. However, this is not the case with aluminium window frames. Due to its highly durable structure, you will not encounter problems such as training, bending, breaking or cracking. Paint adheres well to aluminium window frames, smooth surfaces of siding, less adhering to many angles of wooden window frames, beams and slats. Therefore, there is no such thing as losing their pigments. It does not require as much cleaning as other types of windows. This is one of the reasons why it is used especially in commercial buildings. It will be sufficient to clean these frames, which can be easily cleaned even when it rains, only with a damp cloth.
