Sleek aluminium windows and doors
With slim sight lines and strong frames, aluminium allows for greater expanses of glass. The effect of this is to bring more light into your home.
It’s this trend for light-filled homes that has made architects look again at aluminium. Hence making it the premium choice for contemporary houses and extensions.
Sales manager Nigel Hocking explains: “Aluminium really is the architect’s choice for contemporary building whether it is a new home or for 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 classic appeal thanks to the signature colour choices of grey, black and white.”
What are the advantages of aluminium?
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. This is in comparison to a maximum of 800mm width for UPVC.
These larger panes help to create the ‘glass wall’ appearance that is a significant part of the appeal 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 providing uninterrupted views.
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.
As you would expect from Securahome, all of the aluminium range are conform 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. This can be further boosted with the use of high-performance glass.
