As your signature home deserves elegant doors and windows to go with the overall design scheme, it all boils down to the choice of materials. Wood, steel, composite and uPVC – every popular material brings a unique eye appeal to the table but the charm of aluminium is hard to resist. The material offers ultra slim sightlines and minimalistic proportions that are well utilised by architects and designers to create a contemporary look in residential and commercial settings across regions and countries. So, nothing should deter you from following suit.
In case of aluminium doors and windows, beauty stems from strength. Aluminium is high on tensile strength, allowing manufacturers to create ultra slim frames to hold the glass intact at the centre. (Virtually all aluminium doors and windows feature glass at the centre). As unsightly sightlines are minimised, more glass real estate is extracted and eye appeal is generated. This luxury is not afforded by traditional materials like timber due to their low strength. Here, the frames are bulky and sightlines are more profound, marring the property’s overall appeal.
The strength also translates into more expansive doors and windows. Simply put, you can create large windows and doors while restricting the sightlines. The more glass area ushers in more natural light, which again, may not be possible with timber frames. An unobstructed view is also easily achievable and so is the continuity between the outside and inside. The aluminium doors and windows also offer heat insulation, keeping the indoor temperature to your liking in all seasons. So, you spend less on electricity for cooling and heating.
These windows and doors also spoil for choices when it comes to shapes, sizes, designs and finishes. Take for instance finishes, you can either choose from options like solid, shiny and matte, or get a customised one to your exact taste and decor. Personalization is available for shapes and sizes as well, allowing you to experiment with the design. Aluminium frames are versatile to be moulded into any door type from sliding to bi-fold and hinged. With so many options to work around, let your creativity soar and expectations override.
Beautifying your home with aluminium doors and windows does not cost you as much. The frames are not only affordable vis-à-vis other material options but also available across all price points. They also present you a highly sustainable option, harmless both for the planet and the people.
