Everything You Should Know About Aluminium Windows and Doors

From aesthetics to performance, aluminium offers many advantages. It has a long lifespan, is endlessly recyclable, highly durable, with a wide range of finishes and maintenance-free.  Discover on this page everything you need to know about aluminium windows and doors for your beautiful home.

 

Is Aluminium Cold?

Is aluminium cold? The exact answer is no, modern aluminium frames are using thermal break which helps to regulate heat.

Bifold or slider – what’s the difference?

Bifolds and sliders are high on many people’s home improvement wish lists because they’re both a great way to bring in lots of natural light and make the most of views of the outside. They open and close smoothly and effortlessly and both provide an easy and stylish transition from the house to the garden.  

What Does it Mean When You See the Secured By Design Logo on a Product?

Lots of the window and door systems in AluK’s range are described as being Secured by Design accredited – but what’s behind the letters SBD? 

Finding the Perfect Partner

We don’t supply direct to homeowners, rather to a network of independent fabrication partners across the UK who use our materials to manufacture windows, entrance doors, sliders and bifolds in line with our strict guidelines.

So, You Think Aluminium is Expensive?

Aluminium windows and doors are sometimes thought of as being a relatively expensive option – certainly more expensive than PVC-U and probably on a par with timber at the beginning. But when you weigh up how much they cost over their lifetime and compare that directly with PVC-U and timber, then the picture is actually very different.

The History of Windows

Did you know that glazed windows have only been around for about seven hundred years?

Before then, our ancestors used to get by with holes in the wall covered with cloth and paper.
