BENEFITS OF ALUMINIUM

Aluminium’s benefits make it a modern, efficient and effective material for building and construction through

DURABILITY

Aluminium building products are made from alloys that are weather-proof, corrosion-resistant and immune to the harmful effects of UV rays, ensuring optimal performance over a very long lifetime.

FLEXIBILITY

Aluminium’s combination of properties mean that it can be easily shaped by any of the main industrial metalworking processes, including rolling, extrusion, forging and casting, guaranteeing virtually unlimited design potential.

LIGHT-WEIGHT

Aluminium’s light weight makes it cheaper and easier to transport and handle on site.

STRENGTH

The use of aluminium in buildings assists architects meet performance specifications while minimising expenditure on foundations. Alloyed aluminium can be as strong as steel at only a third of the weight.

CORROSIVE RESISTANCE

Aluminium’s natural oxide coating provides an effective protective barrier against elements that wear other metals.

INSULAR

A layer of insulated aluminium cladding can be four times more effective than uninsulated timber cladding, 100mm of brick, or 200mm of stone masonry.

RECYCLABILITY

Aluminium is 100% recyclable and uses only 5% of the energy used to make the original product. Almost all aluminium used in construction is recycled.

FIRE SAFETY

Aluminium does not burn and is therefore classed as a non-combustible construction material. Aluminium alloys will nevertheless melt at around 600- 650°C, but without releasing harmful gases.

LOW MAINTENANCE

Aluminium provide a low maintenance frame and is resistant to weathering under a range of harsh environmental conditions. Unlike many other materials, it will not swell, crack, split or warp over time; ensuring an extended product life.

THERMAL PERFORMANCE

High performance aluminium windows are able to meet or exceed energy efficiency standards. Aluminium windows and doors can easily achieve improvements in heat gain and heat loss through windows by 60% rivalling more expensive timber and uPVC equivalents.
