Their antique appearance and iron-colored frames characterize Belgian-style aluminum windows; classic-shaped aluminum windows are best suited for medium-sized windows in staircases and public buildings; minimalistic style aluminum windows are suitable for private homes with medium size windows; and urban style aluminum windows that are slightly larger than other windows are perfect for modern apartment buildings and offices.
There are optional mechanisms for the windows’ opening, wings, and sliding. The type of mechanism can be chosen according to the purpose of the building (office or residential) and according to the limitations of the built area, style, and size.
Windows in residences, offices, and shops today add a decorative layer of design to the building. Buildings with large, well-designed windows always look brighter, open, and more inviting. Aluminum, in addition to being a common raw material in the automotive, aviation, and construction industries, is being used in recent years, in windows that enhance the architecture of buildings. Aluminum windows come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, which not only make the windows durable but also complement the interior.
With the wide range of aluminum window designs, it is possible to add another level to the style of the building, depending on the needs. The living or the working environment can be enhanced to create a warmer and homier ambiance or a formal professional atmosphere. Companies that specialize in window design can choose from a range of models based on different aluminum profiles, from the creation of a frame’s template to its final design.
Aluminum is the third most common element on earth and is of great economic importance due to some properties that give it an advantage over heavy metals such as iron, or precious metals such as silver and gold. Aluminum is used as a raw material in the automotive, aviation, electrical, and construction industries. Beyond its prevalence, aluminum is a lightweight, sturdy material, non-toxic and non-hazardous, heat-conductive, and durable. It is therefore easy to understand why the use of aluminum for windows has become so widespread.
Aluminum windows are available in a wide range of durable and high-quality styles, designs, sizes, and colors for all structures, including private residences, luxury apartments, apartment buildings, office buildings, shop windows, or public buildings.
In the past, when people were living in small huts and houses built of temporary and unstable materials (mud, straw, or rawhide tents), the windows were small openings in the walls or the sides of the structures. These openings did not protect the houses from cold, rain, snow, wind, or dust. Over time, the purpose of the windows changed, and wooden windows became the standard.
The use of aluminum windows began in the 1960s, with the accelerated construction of residential and high-rise office buildings. At that time, the range of colors, shapes, and sizes of aluminum windows was much smaller than today. Over the years, the design technique of aluminum windows has evolved to the current state, where aluminum windows have become a standard in most buildings, private and commercial alike.
