The Challenges and Solutions in Installing Aluminum Windows in UAE Skyscrapers

Building the kind of skyscrapers UAE skylines are known for is no mean feat and aluminium windows and their installation come with their own unique set of challenges. The skyscrapers UAE cities like Dubai and Abu Dhabi feature are achievements in engineering not simply because of their design but also how they are able to be constructed in a region where factors like climate, noise pollution and sustainability all need to be considered.


Let’s see just what these conditions are, how difficult they are to work around, and what Technal’s SOLEAL Next and SOLEAL Evolutuion aluminum windows bring to the table that makes their inclusion in the skyscrapers UAE cities boast have improved safety as much as aesthetics.


Aluminium Window Design vs UAE Climate


The UAE climate is one of the extremes. In Dubai alone, temperatures regularly reach above 38°C (100°F) during summer and as low as 12°C (54°F) at night during winter. This is in addition to the occasional sandstorms the region faces. These kinds of conditions require an aluminum window design that incorporates excellent thermal insulation. Expect no less with SOLEAL Next, with an innovative design that makes comfortable indoor temperatures easy to maintain in the face of scorching summer highs and also reduces the building’s energy consumption.


Aluminium Windows and Acoustic Insulation


Urban areas aren’t known for their peace and quiet, especially ones where skyscrapers UAE citizens see every day. The challenge of insulating buildings against exterior noise pollution is one that showcases the SOLEAL Evolution as an excellent option for addressing. As an eminent example of aluminum window design, the acoustic performance of SOLEAL Evolution offers Rw values of up to 47 dB. This lets residential and commercial buildings in noisy environments enjoy more calming interiors.


Making Aluminium Window Installation More Efficient


Installation of aluminum windows in skyscrapers UAE architecture is known for posing several difficulties, not least of which is that their height and scale require a process that offers safety as much as stability. At Technal, we’re proud to say that our SOLEAL range offers the kind of flexibility that makes the installation of these aluminum windows easy while not compromising their features of concealed hardware and secure locking systems. To go further, the SOLEAL Next can be integrated into a variety of façade systems seamlessly and simultaneously offer flexibility and security.


The Versatility and Sustainability of Aluminium Windows


Despite the multiple architectural styles of skyscrapers UAE cities feature, aluminum windows are supreme in their versatility which helps overcome this design challenge. The SOLEAL Next, for example, is available in visible and minimal designs, allowing architects to pursue any kind of aesthetic vision they want. In addition to this, aluminum windows offer a range of customization that lets different colors and accessories be integrated into a building without a trade-off in overall aesthetics.


With these beautiful appearances from aluminum window design comes a strong case for sustainability. Technal is committed to being a driving force in reducing environmental impact through our use of Hydro CIRCAL®, an aluminum alloy that contains 75% recycled end-of-life aluminum. This greener approach to construction also aligns with global sustainability goals thanks to the recycled materials used to make the thermal break elements used in our aluminum windows.


Ensuring Safety and Accessibility with Aluminium Windows


As with any building design, safety is key and a factor that all skyscrapers UAE architects and construction firms design and construct. The challenge is one that needs to be addressed on multiple levels, as aluminum windows need to protect against potential threats like break-ins or extreme weather conditions and protect the safety of occupants.


Technal windows are designed with safety at the fore and boast burglary resistance up to RC2 and PAS24 standards which allows occupants protection against amateur burglars. The SOLEAL Next adds options for fire safety and delayed forcible entry tests, adding extra protection to high-rise buildings.


An often overlooked challenge, accessibility still needs to be addressed if buildings are to be inclusive and user-friendly. The SOLEAL range assists in this way by using specialized features like reduced threshold and easy opening and closing mechanisms. This can be seen via the SOLEAL Next and its low thresholds that improve access for those with reduced mobility.




Installing aluminum windows requires overcoming several challenges, from extreme weather conditions and noise pollution to safety and sustainability requirements. Technal’s SOLEAL Next and SOLEAL Evolution windows offer comprehensive solutions that cater to these needs, providing architects and builders with the tools to create high-performing, aesthetically pleasing, and sustainable buildings.


The combination of these innovative features and solutions makes Technal’s aluminum windows a preferred choice for the kind of skyscrapers UAE citizens are proud to see in their skyline.
