Aluminum windows were used in industrial facilities and public buildings and structures. In residential buildings, aluminum windows have not found their practical application. This was due to the psychological factor, the high cost of aluminum frames and low heat and noise insulation. Today, aluminum windows are becoming more popular due to new manufacturing technologies, improved heat and noise insulation and great design opportunities. Aluminum windows are used for glazing balconies, in the manufacture of large windows, showcases and stained-glass windows. When renovating apartments, you should first install windows, and then everything else..
Advantages of aluminum windows:
High strength constructions;
Aluminum windows perfectly withstand high static loads and do not require reinforcement;
Aluminum structures do not burn;
Aluminum profiles are smaller than plastic window profiles, as a result of which, having the same dimensions in aluminum profiles, the translucent part of the window increases;
long service life;
Cons of plastic windows:
High thermal conductivity (1000 times more than wooden windows);
Any contact with other metals can lead to electrochemical reactions, which will cause corrosion of aluminum and lead to the destruction of window structures..
