Aluminium – the architect’s choice
To create contemporary kerb appeal, aluminium windows and doors have become the architect’s choice for modern homes.
It’s easy to see why – the strength of aluminium makes for slim frames and greater expanses of glass, in turn bringing more light into your home.
It’s the trend for light-filled homes that made architects opt for aluminium, and has made it the premium choice for contemporary houses and extensions.
Securahome sales manager Nigel Hocking said: “Aluminium really is the architect’s choice for contemporary building, be that a new home or an extension.
“The new aluminium range is a great way of bringing that high-end, sleek styling to your home. It looks very modern, but also has a look that won’t date thanks to the signature colour choices of grey, black and white.”
Due to its strength, an aluminium frame can be up to 50 per cent slimmer than a UPVC frame, making it a popular choice for bi-folding doors. The strength of the frame means that the glass panes in aluminium bi-folding doors can be up to 1200mm in width, compared to a maximum of 800mm width for UPVC.
These larger panes help to create the ‘glass wall’ appearance that is the USP of bi-folding doors.
As an alternative to bi-folding doors, aluminium replacement patio doors can be a great way to introduce this trend to your home. Once again the slim, strong frame means you can opt for a larger pane of glass to give uninterrupted views of your garden.
The window range offers a choice of a contemporary square or a more classic frame with softened, sculptured lines.
Like our UPVC windows and doors, the aluminium range is low maintenance. The frames are powder coated to create a very durable finish with a lengthy guarantee against corrosion and peeling, making them ideal for coastal areas.
As you would expect from Securahome, all products in the aluminium range are tested to the very latest British Standards. They carry the BS Kitemark and have multi-point locking mechanisms for security.
The aluminium range also exceeds building regulations requirements for thermal efficiency and this can be further boosted with the use of high-performance glass.
