Robust and Flexible

For the majority of homeowners, four factors come into play when you are looking to buy new windows and doors; weather performance, energy efficiency, security and quality. They are several benefits that aluminium can offer over uPVC.

First of all, aluminium is an extremely robust and flexible metal framing material. The use of aluminium for new windows and doors creates frames that are a lot more resistant to weathering and its strong nature creates windows and doors with improved levels of security.

Due to the strong yet light weight nature of aluminium you can create much slimmer frames than you can with uPVC. This means you can form windows and doors that can hold large and heavy pieces of glass to create a large window opening or patio door with very thin framing.
