Why Commercial Buildings Will Benefit From Using Aluminium

For many commercial properties, aluminium is the go-to choice when it comes to the installation of windows, doors and facades.

Not only does it provide a whole host of benefits, but it has also become much more competitively priced in the marketplace too, making it even more appealing for businesses.

So here are just some of the reasons why you should make aluminium the material for your commercial installation projects.


It’s Durable

Compared to the steel or timber used in more traditional installations, aluminium is virtually maintenance free, making it the natural choice when it comes to exterior doors and windows.

As a result, it provides unbeatable protection from the elements year-after-year with minimal upkeep or maintenance needed come rain or shine.

And don’t forget, as a weather resistant material, it can be finished in a wide range of exterior coatings (anodised, powder coated, lacquered) for further protection meaning, once installed, you really don’t have to give it a second thought.


It’s Versatile

Aluminium can be fabricated much more easily than other materials on the market, making it the ideal choice for commercial properties, both big and small.

Once it has been melted down it can be moulded into various shapes and sizes, numerous times, while never losing its quality.

Through fabrication, it can be moulded and shaped into any specific requirements, to create strong, versatile and hard-wearing windows, doors and facades.


It’s Secure

Due to its durable nature aluminium can create a robust and secure entrance to any building, making any commercial property safer in the process.

It’s an incredibly strong and durable material which allows extra layers of glass to be installed into windows, for example, without the need to increase the thickness of the frame.

If that wasn’t enough, they can also be used seamlessly with other aluminium window and curtain walling systems for enhanced protection for most commercial properties.


It’s Energy Efficient

Aluminium doors reduce heat transmission, helping to create a more efficient and cost-effective building making them one of the most energy efficient products on the market.

Its composition means that it is a natural insulator, keeping out the cold and maintain warmth in the winter while retaining a cooler environment in the summer months.

So as well as ensuring a more comfortable working environment all-year-round, you should also see the benefits when it comes to paying your utility bills each month.


It’s Environmentally Friendly

Not only will aluminium doors and windows help to greatly reduce your company’s carbon footprint but they are also 100% recyclable too.

It’s easy to mine and manufacture with limited environmental impact, unlike timber, that must be sustainably sourced and UPVC – a product which is limited in terms of its recyclability.

Recycling aluminium saves around 95% of the energy needed to make the metal from raw materials and it can be melted down and reformed without losing any quality, a process that can be repeated over and over again.
