Why Choose Aluminium Over PVC

When they first emerged, it was thought that traditional PVC windows were far superior to aluminium windows. When they were first released aluminium windows only came in a silver finish and were viewed as being utilitarian when compared to ‘soft’ PVC which came in white, or a wood finish.

However, a lot has changed. as well as design moving on, technology also has. This means there are many practical benefits in which aluminium far outstrips PVC.

Aluminium has a far greater strength to weight ratio than PVC, it can also be manufactured into a multitude of shapes and sizes. Because of this strength and adaptability aluminium windows have traditionally been used for commercial premises, which typically require larger windows and panes of glass. Also, due to the increased strength aluminium frames can be made slimmer, giving a more stylish appearance.

The overall finish of an aluminium window is much more professional than PVC. The windows at Clearview Bifolding Doors can be crafted with mitre cuts and much neater joints, compared to the welded seams of a PVC window.

Developments in polyamide technology have improved in the thermal insulation that aluminium windows provide. It also increases the strength and allows for the opportunity for a dual colour finish with different colours on the internal and external faces.

This freedom of choice is also another area where aluminium windows excel over PVC. As well as the dual colour finish, Clearview Bifolding Doors offer over 200 colour finishes to our aluminium frames. And they will hold their finish a lot longer than PVC as they are resistant to corrosion, erosion, denting, scuffing and weathering.
