Why Aluminium is preferred more in comparison to UPVC

Posted by sunainaram on November 17th, 2016

Due to its high density, strength, better stability, ability to resist high wind pressure & due to many other features Aluminium Window is  always preferred  in comparison to UPVC.  Aluminum being  a unique metal which is non-inflammable, nontoxic in nature which can be  recycled infinitely also promotes green building certification.   Aluminium can be coloured in many shades after surface treatment process like  Powder Coating, Anodizing, PVDF  to suit any décor. UPVC offer choice of limited colours which may not be aesthetically suitable.   

UPVC windows degrade over many years. Aluminium, however, is a much more robust compound and with proper care will stand the test of time without compromise. One of the ongoing complaints with UPVC,  is the thickness of the profile (the frame). Aluminium due to its strength, the frames can be made much thinner. This allows more light into the property and leaves the window looking cleaner with a higher ratio of glass to frame which UPVC can offer.
