In the realm of home design, new materials are always making their mark, and trends shift as architects, designers and homeowners embrace the evolving aesthetics of the built environment. One material that captures the imagination of modern design aficionados is aluminium. Sleek, versatile and undeniable contemporary, aluminium offers a blend of functionality and style that has made it a sought-after choice in the world of home design.
A History of Aluminium in Design
Aluminium's foray into home design isn't new. Its resiliance, lightweight nature and resistance to corrosion made it an attractive choice for various applications even in the 20th century. However, the recent surge in popularity can be attributed to the modern movement's inclination toward minimalism, simplicity and efficiency.
Unlike traditional materials like wood, which might deteriorate over time due to weather conditions, pests or rot, aluminium offers significant longevity. Its resistance to rust and corrosion ensures that windows, doors and sliders made from aluminium maintain their structural and visual integrity for years.
Aluminium's sleek finish and ability to be extruded into slim frames have cemented it as a favorite for large windows, allowing for panoramic views with minimal obstructions. Its ability to be powder coated means that homeowners have a vast colour choice to choose from to suit any taste or style.
As concerns about energy consumption and sustainability grow, aluminium's thermal efficiency becomes increasingly relevant. Properly designed aluminium windows and doors with thermal insulation can prevent heat transfer, ensuring home stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Aluminium is 100% recyclable, which means products made from it can be melted down and reused, drastically reducing the carbon footprint associated with production. Our products are made with at least 75% end-of-life aluminium, which means that old products have been recycled for use again reducing the CO2 emissions associated with our products by up to 85% when compared with the production of global emissions for primary aluminium.
