Can weather conditions damage your aluminium windows?

by admin — Categories: Aluminum BuildingsComments Off on Can weather conditions damage your aluminium windows?

The elements take a toll on our homes. Strong winds damage roofs, rain causes floods and a storm can permanently disable all your electronics. There are certain natural events that homeowners can’t control but for everything else there is aluminium!

Aluminium manufacturers advocate aluminium’s characteristics; it is strong, cost-effective, beautiful, abundant and lightweight. This means it can be used for almost any application be it security or appearance. Most modern homes employ aluminium somewhere – it can be used for all-in-one frames of doors and windows.

The corrosion resistance is excellent. A thin surface layer of aluminium oxide forms when bare metal is exposed to air which prevents the oxidation of the metal. This means that the metal most susceptible to deterioration is protected by a hardened section of the metal itself. The Aluminium Federation of South Africa states that this attribute can be further improved by applying different types of coatings such as an anodised or powder coating.

The association also promotes the fact that aluminium is a product with unique properties and proclaims it as the natural partner of the construction sector. The association writes that every year “millions of aluminium windows and doors are installed in new homes and used for replacement. Highly resistant and rigid, they have low rates of expansion and contraction and also of condensation. They are extremely stable, durable and thermally efficient.”

If aluminium windows and doors are installed properly, aluminium proves one of the sturdiest and most robust materials. It is virtually unbreakable as the frame is fitted into the wall using the strongest material according to the ratio of their weights. Aluminium can be used in any climate with the same outcome and you are guaranteed lifelong utility.

Find a quality aluminium window and door manufacturer for your aluminium needs. Not only will you save money in the long run but you’ll also have the strongest fixtures protecting you from the elements.
