What are Aluminium Windows?

Aluminium windows are windows made from the robust, silvery metal, aluminium.

Aluminium itself is highly resistant to corrosion, meaning aluminum windows are extremely long-lasting. It also benefits from being strong yet light.

They reached peak popularity in the 1970s with the start of the double glazing boom in the UK but have subsequently been eclipsed by cheaper uPVC windows.

Why Choose Aluminium Windows?

Clearly, there are reasons to choose aluminum windows or they wouldn’t have lasted so long in the market. Among the key ones are:

Thin, attractive aluminium window frames

Aluminium’s strength means windows have narrower frames. This can improve the design of the window and obviously maximizes daylight potential of a window.

  • Best for large windows

  • Because aluminium doesn’t expand or contract as much as uPVC, it’s a better alternative for anyone wanting very big windows in their Bristol or Bath home.
  • Green Windows

Aluminium windows are 100% recyclable plus it’s an abundant material so it definitely scores highly with any customers in Bristol or Bath wishing to have environmentally friendly windows. It goes without saying too, that in common with all the windows we offer, improved insulation makes your home more energy efficient and reduces your carbon footprint.

  • Colourful Windows

  • While most people with aluminum windows in the Bath and Bristol areas play it safe with white, silver or grey colours, there is a whole RAL palette of colours to choose from in gloss and matt finishes.  You can even get different colours for the inside and outside of your windows!
  • Low maintenance

  •  Aluminium, being so string, requires little maintenance to ensure they remain looking pristine and free from faults. They won’t require repainting like timber frames should you choose to get coloured frames.
