Leap into the Future with Aluminium Windows
Thinking about windows, the image in your mind is most likely just a square – or round if you’re feeling fancy – piece of glass that should be clean enough to see through. For ordinary windows, you would be right. But with the advancements being made in aluminium windows we are actually a lot closer to the high-class windows that were only possible in movies.
Walls can be windows onto life
You’ve seen those offices and penthouses in movies and television shows, high up above the city with floor-to-ceiling glass walls offering magnificent views. More and more, these are actually becoming a reality these days, and it’s all thanks to aluminium window frames.
Aluminium is lightweight and strong, giving it the ideal properties to be manufactured in virtually any size you want while still retaining its strength. The main difficulty with such large windows was always the weight of the glass, but with an aluminium window frame that is no longer a problem. And to make things even more convenient these frames are manufactured exactly to size so that when they are installed they are stable, keeping out wind and rain and protecting your heavy glass panes from the elements which may conspire to displace them.
Beef up security
With rising global crime rates you definitely want the best possible protection from your windows. Traditionally windows have been one of the major security weak-points in the home, but they don’t have to be anymore. Aluminium window frames can be custom-made to fit various thicknesses of glass, meaning you can put in a pane as thick as you believe necessary.
For example, laminated glass is a type of safety glass made up of layers of glass with a connecting interlayer. In the event of the glass breaking, this interlayer keeps the glass together to prevent shattering and creation of entry gaps. This can be further strengthened even to the point of being bulletproof by adding more and more layers, and your aluminium window frame can be manufactured to hold it all in place. How much safer can you get?
Always moving forward
The technology that goes into manufacturing aluminium windows is growing and developing further every day. For instance, aluminium window frames are extremely energy efficient temperature control items thanks to the range of thermal break technologies and methods that have been developed. This ensures that the temperatures on either side of the window do not affect each other, keeping your home either warm or cool without needing to use air-conditioners.
Think about it: if thermal break technology can be worked into the interior of your aluminium window frames, and they can hold layered glass panes, how long before you can have a window or glass wall with a futuristic display? The future is within reach, growing closer every day. So get in touch with a manufacturer of quality aluminium door and window frames and leap into the future of endless possibility.
