9 Reasons to Choose Aluminium Windows

Aluminium windows with unusual shapes from AluFoldDirect

Aluminium windows have always been a popular choice for commercial projects and recently we’ve seen an increase in interest for domestic aluminium window installations. 

Aluminium windows have come on in leaps and bounds in terms of design and energy efficiency over the last few years so now they are on more of a level playing field with their PVCu counterparts. Aluminium not only equals the efficiency of PVCu, but also offers flexibility in design.

That means oversized or unusually shaped windows are within easy reach of homeowners looking to use glazing in their homes to create impressive features.

Whatever the size, scale or style of your project, aluminium windows from AluFoldDirect are a great choice. 


Here are our nine reasons to choose aluminium windows:


9. Aluminium Windows are Strong

Aluminium as a material is ideal for window frames. It is a low density metal, so you can achieve very slimline window frames which are sturdy and strong. With the superior strength of aluminium comes solid window frames that can withstand all weather conditions with no expansion or contraction during frosts or in bright sunlight.


8. Aluminium Windows are Secure

We know that security levels for windows are usually near the top of the list when you’re doing your research. The robustness of aluminium offers superior strength to withstand any attacks. We use top-quality hardware and multipoint shootbolt locking mechanisms to completely secure your aluminium windows. For added peace of mind, you can also specify the Secured by Design accreditation.


7. Unlimited Design Options with Aluminium Windows

AluFoldDirect can manufacture bespoke window shapes to fit in with your design plans. This means that homeowners have complete flexibility in their design options. Choose triangular aluminium windows, large, multi-level windows with pointed tops or even unusual quadrilateral shapes for really modern new-build designs.

Plus, our aluminium windows match in with our aluminium bi-fold doors and you can read our blog here for 5 reasons to choose aluminium bi-fold doors.

6. Choose the Finer Details

As well as unusual shapes to give the wow factor for your project, you can choose from a range of profiles for outer frames, cills, sashes and beading in your aluminium window design. Plus, you can choose to have your window frames in any RAL colour with the additional option of dual colour frames so you can match to internal décor as well as exterior brickwork or render.


5. Aluminium is Long-Lasting

Unlike PVCu, aluminium has a really long life-span without the potential to become worn by extreme weather or lack of maintenance. Aluminium can withstand any weather elements that the British climate can throw at it, without rusting or rotting so your windows will look stunning for years to come.


4. Aluminium Windows are Energy Efficient

Our thermally broken aluminium exceeds all u-value targets, across the entire range of products. You can choose to buy your frames glazed or unglazed from AluFoldDirect. There’s the option of double or triple glazed units, depending on the level of thermal efficiency you want to achieve.


3. Glass Options for Aluminium Windows

If you choose to have your aluminium windows delivered glazed, you can choose from a range of glass choices for extra design flexibility. The choices include coloured, patterned and obscured glass. You could even opt for self-cleaning or solar control properties for lower-maintenance and extra efficiency.


2. Precise Manufacturing for Aluminium Windows

Another benefit of aluminium is the absolute precision that can be achieved. That’s why we say to send us measurements for orders for aluminium windows and bi-fold doors after the aperture has been created. Then your order will be delivered to site in one week unglazed or two weeks glazed for a quick and smooth installation.


1. Slim Sightlines for the Best Views

One of the biggest benefits of aluminium windows is the really slim sightlines you can achieve with this strong and sturdy material. It’s especially important if your house has an impressive view that you want to make the most of with your designs.
