The outside environment is the single most significant factor in selecting the right window frames. Some non-quantifiable factors, such as distance from the sea or extreme temperature variations, make some system options, less suitable than others. This results in increased maintenance requirements.
The above-mentioned technical difficulties are not relevant to aluminium systems, as they are not subject to maintenance requirements and their longevity is impressive. No matter what the installation conditions, aluminium is a material highly unlikely to crack, expand or warp over time. Thus, maintenance requirements are minimal to non-existent. Therefore, you need not worry about the strength and guaranteed performance of aluminium heat insulation systems.
Lastly, aluminium has the amazing property of not corroding (rusting). This, combined with the electrostatic powder coating it has on delivery fromUltra Aluminium Systems, makes it the optimal material for use in energy-efficient aluminium systems.
The choice provided by aluminium in energy-efficient window frames is limitless and it is certain that you will find something that suits your style and taste. You may choose from among a wide selection of colours, designs and types.
There are two benefits to the above mentioned electrostatic method of powder coating aluminium. It both improves its corrosion resistance characteristics and blends the casing with the architecture of the surroundings. Thus, you are not required to settle for a standard white casing. On the contrary, you may browse through all the colours and select the one that suits you best.
You may now adapt the casing not only to your needs but also to your choice of decor. Now, casings become an artistic element of your personal or professional space. It should be anything but boring.
Sound proofing and heat insulation
Modern aluminium window frames are specially designed to provide sound-proofing, heat insulation and, as a consequence, a significant energy upgrade. This is because another major benefit, in addition to the comfort provided by isolating the interior from outdoor influences, is the energy savings they can achieve.
Aluminium window frames tend to keep cooling and heating expenses down, as they can keep the interior of your home warm in winter and cool in summer, protecting it from temperature fluctuations.
All the above make aluminium the optimal material for window frame construction, precisely due to its undeniably wide range of benefits. This is a material that combines high mechanical strength and great looks with practically unlimited service life and minimal maintenance requirements.
Everybody knows that unsuitable window frames and their accessories are responsible for thermal losses experienced in interior spaces. In areas of Greece suffering from high summer temperatures as well as low winter temperatures, the need for heat blocking window frames is not only urgent but a necessity.
The replacement of single-glazing with double-glazing can result in energy waste prevention of up to 32%. Furthermore, their use with simultaneous outer wall insulation, may boost savings to 50%.
The use of aluminium heat-blocking window frames, compared to standard ‘cold’ ones, restricts heat loss up to 1/3 and contributes to a reduction of heating costs by 1/5.
An additional factor that favours the selection of heat-blocking window frames is the protection of the window frames themselves, as well as the materials in contact with them, from the undesirable effects of condensation. Being a good conductor of heat, aluminium naturally transfers cold to the interior of the casing. This way, when the warm air inside meets the cold surface of aluminium, it is instantly condensed into liquid. On extremely cold winter days, there is significant condensation and water dripping down the aluminium surface, which could damage adjacent walls, floors and furnishings.
The heat blocking casing is bordered by a special insulating material. Polyamide. Polyamide is placed between the inner and the outer profile surface (rod). Then, additional aluminium is stapled onto it; thus, aluminium and polyamide now constitute a unified structure.
Polyamide, in turn, is a poor heat conductor. As such, it ‘blocks’ the influence of the external temperature on the inner surface of the casing, eliminating the condensation effect and, as a consequence, all the problems it may cause.
