Aluminium Windows and Doors: The Two Heavyweights of the Double Glazing Industry

Published 16 December 2016 by Sternfenster

Aluminium windows and doors are fast becoming the preferred option for many homeowners.

Why is that?

Today, we want to explore the benefits and features that aluminium windows and doors offer as home improvements in the UK to find out why they are such a sought after choice.

Here at Sternfenster, we are aluminium windows and doors experts, fabricating the very best products in the industry for our clients throughout the UK. We are one of the leading double glazing companies thanks to our quality and our exceptional standards, supplying our aluminium windows and doors to the most trusted of UK installers.

Heavyweights in the Double Glazing Industry

There are so many reasons as to why aluminium windows and doors are heavyweights in the double glazing industry, so let’s begin with the exceptional performance they offer in security, energy efficiency and protecting your home from the British weather.

We work with Smart Architectural Aluminium to create aluminium windows and doors that excel in all of these areas. The modern and innovative technology incorporated into their design makes them an exceptional choice all round.

Amazing Security

Aluminium windows and doors are inherently strong. They have a super slim profile that hides the incredible natural strength of the aluminium material. It’s a great choice, as it not only achieves outstanding levels of natural security, it also looks fantastic too.

When we create our aluminium windows and doors, we ensure every detail is considered. Our aluminium windows and doors are internally beaded, which is a fantastic, high security deterrent for burglars.

The internal beading ensures that the glass cannot possibly be removed from the outside, allowing your property to achieve exceptional standards of home security, guaranteeing heightened peace of mind.

To maximise the security standards of our aluminium windows and doors, we also fit the very best and state of the art multi-point locking systems. You will be fully protected and completely safe and secure with aluminium windows and doors. In fact, no other double glazing offers the same levels of home protection.

Energy Efficient Aluminium?

Aluminium windows and doors were once considered to offer poor performance when it came to energy efficiency, but that has all changed in the 21st Century.

The slim line profile maximises the glazed area, meaning that the double glazing can do what it’s meant to and retain the heat in your home.

However, where our aluminium windows and doors really stand out from the crowd is in their exceptional profiles. Our aluminium windows and doors have polyamide thermally broken frames. This means that there is a section within the frame to trap air, thus creating a thermal barrier.

The cold can’t get into your home and heat loss is minimised, ensuring that your property is warm and cosy, even in the coldest months!

Not only will you feel the benefit when your new aluminium windows and doors are installed, but you will also see it in the long term too. Our aluminium windows and doors offer standards of thermal efficiency that ensure your home stays warmer for longer. This means that you will need to use less heating to keep it at a comfortable temperature, and of course, less heating means lower energy bills.

This is just one of the many cost-effective qualities of aluminium windows and doors.

Superb Weather Proofing

We all know that the UK weather can be pretty horrendous, so our aluminium windows and doors are designed and manufactured to withstand the British climate.

Aluminium windows and doors will protect you from even the very worst winter storms. There will be no leaks or draughts, and even in the most challenging conditions, your home will be safe.

Aluminium is incredibly robust and durable, so your windows and doors will stand up to anything, making them the perfect long term double glazing solution.

Aluminium Windows and Doors – The Versatile Design Option

One of the greatest benefits of choosing aluminium windows and doors is that they come with so many versatile design options. Each one can be configured and crafted to be exactly how you want it and how you need it to be, but the true customisation comes in the finish.

Aluminium windows and doors are stylish simply in their bare form, however, you can enhance their beauty with a comprehensive range of colour finishes.

From bold and bright colours to muted shades that blend in with your home, every option you could imagine is available to personalise your new aluminium windows and doors.
