Aluminium Windows – Double and Triple Glazed
Aluminium is the strongest and most durable material, easy to clean and maintain. Quality double and triple glazed aluminium windows are therefore the most expensive choice in the window market. Aluminium windows are often used for commercial properties and retail facilities. Nevertheless, they are also extremely well suited for residential properties. High-end aluminium windows can be constructed for large glazed areas in a variety of shapes, types and configurations. Precision manufactured aluminium (extrusion) profiles can be powder-coated to your liking and design approach in every colour (pantone or RAL). High quality aluminium window frames provide good properties; their acoustic and thermal properties however are not quite comparable to PVC and timber window framing. SCS suppliers have almost closed this small gap by implementation of the multi-air chamber and thermally broken framing systems.
Double and triple glazed aluminium windows are especially the right choice for large glazing units or glass fronts in your home or business. Due to the strength and durability of the material, your options are indefinite.
In the special configuration of flush-fitted glazing in the frame, the glass pane is suspended mechanically but not visibly by point locking in the rebate. This creates the smooth and attractive appearance many architects integrate in the design of high-end residential and commercial buildings.
The rather high price of aluminium products is a result of increasing raw material prices due to higher demand on international markets. Therefore, double and triple glazed aluminium windows are more expensive than uPVC and timber windows.
Aluminium windows differentiate by their frame thickness, quality and stability as well as thermal and acoustic properties. This means the main factor is thickness of the external frame and windows sash, which holds the double or triple glazing unit. Broadly speaking, increased thickness of framing and glazing panel will improve thermal properties and all other properties above. High quality aluminium windows come in a variety of frame thicknesses of up to 117 mm, which SCS can supply if required.
The imported high quality product range of SCS provides 3 major options for frame thickness:
CLASSIC with 70 mm frames, VISION with 75 mm frames and PREMIUM with 85 mm frames
Classic (70 mm)
Vision (75 mm)
Premium (85 mm)
Finishes and Surfaces
SCS supplies aluminium windows in various finishes and surfaces and in every possible colour (pantone and RAL). The types of finishes for the aluminium profiles seem almost indefinite. Possible finishes are powder-coated, anodised, special coating, decor, etc. The finishes can be applied single-sided or double-sided, on the frame only or frame and sash. That way each window can be individually adapted to the interior and exterior finish of your property. Below, you can find a variety, which is available in every configuration. More colour choices are available upon request, depending on frame thickness and type. Please Contact SCS to verify availability.
