Aluminium Clad windows work better than UPVC windows
Made primarily from wood, the processes and waste of aluminium clad windows are more environmentally friendly than those used for all aluminium or UPVC windows. Additionally, improving the thermal efficiency of aluminium can contribute significantly to your home’s CO2 emissions and heating bill.
Aluminum offers an elegant and contemporary look on the outside, while wood provides a feeling of warmth and softness on the inside. They can be finished in any RAL color in bi-colour which means you can go for one color to inside and a completely different color outside.
Alu-Clad windows are an excellent cost effective option for anyone due to their low maintenance requirements in comparison to other window frame types and their high quality powder-coated build which gives the profiles an exceptionally hard-wearing surface that lasts for many years.
People in the industry always choose wood/aluminium clad. Other options are often not worth it due to the high maintenance requirements. Going down the pure wood route is a big task requiring regular painting and embellishing of the windows.
AluClad windows and doors are expected to have a typical life expectancy of 45 years, compared with uPVC frames which have a life expectancy of only 20-35 years depending on how much maintenance given to the windows or doors.
Alu-clad is often the better option for many people. Aluminium clad windows are timber windows with an external casing of aluminium. They have the same low-maintenance requirements as UPVC but at the same time maintaining the more tangible timber interior.
Switching to aluclad can help you reduce U-values to around 0.6, still low U-values being achieved with triple glazing. Aluclad is a great option if you want to achieve passive levels, but there are many other reasons to switch too.
Aluminium clad windows are the best and most economical windows on the market. Unlike other windows, AluClad windows are unpainted and unaffected by ultraviolet light or fading. They also allow better insulation and offer more energy efficiency.
