Aluminum is such a versatile element in the periodic table. Its high strength-to-weight ratio makes it a suitable material to use in construction and even airplane manufacturing. You might think, "I do not want to use plain silver metal doors and windows out for my ever-so-beautiful home and ruin the aesthetics." But, here is the catch, it is available in any color you might want! Aluminum is preferred by a lot of homeowners for its sleek metallic finish and how you can use it to achieve any design you have in mind, but it is mostly used for sliding doors and windows in urban locations. It is strong, lightweight, and when compared to traditional wood doors and windows, much more cost-effective.
Key Benefits of Sliding Aluminium Doors and Windows
Aluminum sliding doors are capable of withstanding a lot of weather conditions and environmental problems that may arise. Although don't yell at them, they probably won't be able to withstand that. "Words cut deeper than a cutting saw", remember?
Aluminium, the most emotional element, screams "minimalism". Creating a door or a window with aluminum frames and glass fills your living space with natural light and gives you an unobstructed view of your children or pets eating dirt on the lawn. Stop them or enjoy the view, it is up to you.
The frames can be designed to your preference and the unique powder-coating technique can give them any kind of finish in any color you like. Oppenheimer black or Barbie pink, it is all up to your imagination, although we would not recommend Barbie pink for a door frame, it is too... unimaginable.
2) Flexible space utilization:
The arc space required to open a traditional floor-to-ceiling door is valuable space you could use for carpets or doormats. You won't have to worry about carpet space, especially if you have a small space where there are sliding doors installed. They open and close horizontally and adjacent to each other, maximizing the available space in your condo or apartment.
Glass sliding doors will also make your room look virtually larger as there is more natural light entering your living space. Your pets also get to enjoy the golden hour to nap inside while you pull up a chair to enjoy it yourself.
The biggest problem when it comes to normal sliding doors is the swelling caused due to moisture. Say it rains and some moisture comes in contact with these sliding doors, they tend to absorb it and swell, making it difficult to open or close. The last thing anybody wants is to get drenched in rain when you struggle to close the window. This problem is eradicated when you use aluminum in place of wood or any other material. It is extremely moisture-resistant and will not swell or damage when exposed to moisture or humidity, making it the best choice for humid and tropical regions. No obstruction in the sliding mechanism, if you still have difficulties sliding them open or close, we are sorry to let you know that you are the weakest reader we have.
4) Easy maintenance:
Nobody wants to spend hours wiping off dust and particles from their doors and windows every now and then. With glass-fitted aluminum doors and windows, cleaning can be done in a jiffy. Just a regular cleaning cloth with some window cleaning solution will make them squeaky clean. Lubricating the grooves is as easy as applying some oil or special lubricating agents and it would not eat up a lot of the precious time that you would rather spend bathing in the golden hour.
Just because aluminum is a metal, it does not mean it also has the properties of every metal. It is special. It is like that one favorite cousin you like hanging out with. You have a lot of cousins, but this one is different, right? Just like that, aluminum, unlike any other metal, can provide insulation against heat. Even though, it has high thermal conductivity, modern aluminum is made by using a thermal break technology that gives them superpowers. Thermal braking is a technology that provides air brides in between the layers of the frame, thus giving them the superpower of heat insulation. Thermal gaskets can be installed to further reduce the energy absorption of this highly reflective metal, keeping cold or hot air in your room for a long time. Watch your wallet get fatter with all the money you save up on energy bills.
In a world where doors and windows have personality, aluminum emerges as the stylish superhero. Its minimalistic allure, customizable colors (sorry, still not recommending Barbie pink), and weather defiance make it the cool kid on the block. Sliding into your space with flexibility, it banishes moisture concerns and keeps maintenance a breeze. With energy-saving superpowers, aluminum isn't just metal; it's your savvy, sleek cousin, making your home both chic and efficient.
