Aluminium is one of the most widely available metals on the planet. It is therefore no surprise that it is used in everything from cars to swimming pool fences, and particularly, to create aluminium frames for windows and doors. At Southern Cross Windows, we can tell you exactly why so many people choose this material for their home.
One reason why this is so popular is that, when combined with alloys, it is extremely strong and are able to withstand temperature changes and the weight pressure of the rest of the building. Southern Cross Windows can help you to find the ideal aluminium frame for our glass products.
Despite being so strong, aluminium frames are typically very light. This means that it is more commercially viable and important structurally. For example, when you need aluminium frames to fit into a curtain wall, you need something that doesn’t weigh very much.
Unlike other types of metal, aluminium can be easily and quickly moulded into frames. The profiles are made using a die extrusion process, and these are then fitted together to create the frame. This allows for more adaptability, more intricate frame designs, and will not fall apart when made into a particularly difficult shape.
If you have a lot of curved spaces that need filling with window and door frames, Aluminium is the best metal to choose. It can be pressed into a variety of shapes without risk of cracking or breaking, meaning that you have a strong frame for all of Southern Cross Window’s products.
Most metals have problems with corrosion, and Aluminium is the best choice in this regard. A layer of aluminium oxide will form across the surface of the metal, protecting it from corrosion including rust, water stains and cleaning product damage. This resistant also makes it less likely to split, crack or swell due to corrosion.
