If you’re interested in how an aluminium façade can transform your building, this blog is for you: here’s everything you need to know about Glaze Aluminium façade installation in the Northwest.


What is an aluminium façade?

Commonly used on buildings all over the world, aluminium façade systems have a discernible effect on the overall aesthetic of a building, as well as on certain practical functions that are encompassed by its design.

As well as protecting the interior of the building, governing the ways in which it can be accessed whilst providing versatile installation options, aluminium façades can be a stylish way of approaching the main feature of a building.

With this in mind, it’s important to consider the specific advantages of aluminium as a material, before looking at the different system options and how they could benefit your building.


Why would it be good for my building?

Aluminium is a light metal, making it easier to install than other types of systems, such as facades made from steel.

As well as this, the oxide coating used for aluminium façade systems makes it resistant to corrosion, a feature that is especially useful for an external feature of a building. Often lasting decades, this, as well as the ease with which it can be installed, has a serious benefit on the overall cost of both installation and maintenance.

Finally, the flexibility of aluminium means façade systems are easily developed to meet bespoke design requirements, allowing them to be developed in a way that is specific to your needs.

What type of installations are there?

Here at Glaze Aluminium, our facades team take pride in their reputation as reliable and knowledgeable providers of aluminium façade installations. With several types of system available, the final part of this blog will guide you through some of the services we offer, starting with aluminium sliding doors.

Aluminium sliding doors are extremely versatile, as they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can also come as singular units or in groups, meaning you can use them to cover surfaces of any width or height.

As well as sliding doors, there is also the option of aluminium curtain walls, which are used on the outside of buildings. This type of facade augments the building’s exterior, providing new innovations and landmarks with an additional attractive feature. They also use other materials, such as glass, to protect the building from weathering and other types of wear and tear.

Like aluminium sliding doors, bi-folding doors are fitted onto rollers instead of hinges. They can be used on buildings of all types and allow a lot of sunlight into your space. They can also be used on any part of the building, whether it’s the front or back, opening your building up to the outside world.
