Due aesthetics, security and functionality considerations, aluminium is the ideal material for your door and window frames.
Its basic advantages compared to other frame manufacturing materials are:
Doors and windows fitted with a thermal break, combined with appropriate glass panes and rubbers, offer high levels of heat and noise insulation.
Aluminium is a material that does not wear out in time, thus ensuring the longevity of your frames.
It is also appropriate for areas with high temperatures and intense sunlight.
The flexible design of systems used in doors and windows enables you to choose from among traditional or modern structures.
The end image of aluminium frames is perfect thanks to the capability of painting.
Through a wide variety of colors and textures, you can choose electrostatic painting, anodizing for a metallic texture, or even woodgrain imitation patterns.
Frame manufacture is combined with the use of appropriate mechanisms ensuring the appropriate function of the frame.
The maintenance and care of frames is quite easy, and they can be cleaned periodically (every 1 or 2 months) only with water.
Aluminium is of natural origin, and there is plenty of it in nature.
As it is environmental friendly and 100% recyclable, it does not have a negative effect on human health and the environment.
Compared to other materials used in construction nowadays, aluminium is the most modern. It has been used since the mid 20th century, and more specifically in Greece since the mid ‘60s.
It is no coincidence that it has valuable qualities and characteristics:
High resistance to atmospheric corrosion.
It does not get magnetized and is not toxic. Even in fire, it is not burnt and does not release any substances that are harmful to humans or the environment.
It has increased mechanical strengths, mainly tensile strength, shear strength and compressive strength.
It has only limited thermal expansion, and its initial dimensions are maintained even after years of use.
It is an excellent electricity conductor.
It is a 100% recyclable material, and recycling does not compromise its qualities. Actually, its recycling phase requires only 5% of the energy used for its production.
It is ductile. It can take any form and will keep that form afterwards.
It is produced in Greece from Greek bauxite.
Recycling as an applied industrial method in aluminium production was introduced in Europe in 1920 and is now perhaps the most important means used for energy saving and pollution reduction.
To recycle aluminium and its products, the so-called scrap is collected.
Scrap arises right after the end of the production process and is recycled within the factory.
In addition, after being used up, all aluminium products are considered as scrap. The most recyclable products are those intended for the automotive industry, for construction and for refreshment packaging.
Aluminium has been called the 20th century material, and this is not accidental as it is appropriate for all industrial and construction uses.
Its basic categories are:
ship-building and transport industries
building & construction industry
packaging & containers
electric product manufacturing
