As a key feature of modern commercial and residential properties today, sustainable sliding doors, such as aluminium sliding doors, offer numerous benefits that range from energy efficiency to a lower carbon footprint. New and seasoned architectural and home improvement professionals looking to take a more sustainable approach to their designs ahead of the highly anticipated COP28 UAE conference can learn more about the benefits of installing sliding systems like these for their prospective clients below.
What are sustainable sliding systems made of?
If sustainability is the goal when choosing the next set of doors for your existing or upcoming projects, look no further than Technal’s aluminium solution. In our quest for sustainability, we proudly produced TECHNAL's aluminium sliding systems. These systems are manufactured from 100% recycled aluminium - Hydro CIRCAL 100R, boasting a near-zero carbon footprint. With corrosion resistance, durability, and low maintenance, our aluminium sliding systems are perfect for Middle East challenging climate and a solution for the sustainability challenges faced in the industry.
What are the benefits of Technal’s aluminium sliding doors?
Technal aluminium sliding doors act as excellent insulators, ensuring a comfortable indoor environment year-round. Equipped with composite gaskets, they offer optimal thermal insulation, effectively blocking weather, sound, dust, drafts, and rain. By keeping cold air out in winter and heat out in summer, these doors significantly reduce energy consumption, leading to lower utility bills for your clients.
Creating a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, our sliding door solutions promote a harmonious flow while allowing your clients to enjoy uninterrupted views of their gardens and landscapes thanks to their large glass panes and slim sightline. Bringing the outdoors inside enhances the overall aesthetics of your finished projects while allowing natural light to flood the interiors.
Safety and security have always been paramount considerations for sliding doors. In the past, there were concerns regarding their safety, but thanks to technological advancements, these issues have been effectively addressed. Today, professionals have access to Technal sliding doors which are equipped with shatterproof safety glass and fortified with entry delay and resistance features.
These improvements provide enhanced security and protection, offering peace of mind to clients, especially families with young children or pets. With robust security measures in place, both residential and commercial property owners can rest assured that their valuable assets are well safeguarded. As a result, our sustainable patio door solutions consistently lead to satisfied customers on every project.
Utilizing alternative energy sources, like hydroelectric power, in the manufacturing of aluminium doors ensures a more energy-efficient production process. Our commitment to sustainability extends to using recycled and recyclable content, such as Hydro CIRCAL (recycled aluminium), in our high-performance sliding doors. Hydro CIRCAL recycled aluminium is made with a minimum of 75% recycled, post-consumer aluminium scrap. This not only reduces the carbon footprint during production but also helps minimize operational CO2 emissions.
The lightweight nature of our aluminium doors offers significant advantages during transportation. With reduced fuel consumption and lower transportation costs, our solutions become especially advantageous for large-scale projects and installations in remote locations. Moreover, these transportation efficiencies contribute to lower greenhouse gas emissions, further enhancing the overall sustainability profile of each project.
Sliding door systems operate without hinges, gliding effortlessly along a track instead of swinging open. This design eliminates the need for additional space required by traditional doors, creating space value for developers and making these doors an ideal choice for areas with limited room. The ability to maximize usable space offers developers the advantage of creating more functional and flexible living or working environments. This convenience and space-saving feature make sliding door systems a highly sought-after addition to modern architectural and interior design projects.
How sustainable sliding door solutions align with COP28 UAE
COP28 UAE, an upcoming global climate change conference, presents an opportunity to address environmental concerns and pursue sustainable solutions. Installing sustainable doors directly contributes to this agenda through their eco-friendly features. Choosing sliding door systems that incorporate sustainable materials, such as recycled aluminium like Hydro CIRCAL, helps to decrease both the embodied and operational carbon footprint of projects and developments.
Through the use of recycled aluminium in Hydro CIRCAL, energy use during production is significantly reduced. And, due to the benefits of aluminium installations in terms of improving energy efficiency, long-term operational use of completed developments also remains in line with sustainable action. By opting for environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing processes, we can reduce the overall carbon emissions associated with the production of these doors.
Utilizing sustainable sliding doors in your ventures offers many benefits, including energy efficiency, improved indoor/outdoor flow, enhanced safety and security, space-saving design, and abundant natural light. As we strive to combat climate change and transition towards a more sustainable future, incorporating such environmentally friendly solutions into your business practices becomes increasingly important. By embracing sustainable choices, like the installation of sliding glass doors, we can contribute to mitigating climate change and achieving the goals set forth by conferences like COP28 UAE. These doors also provide an elegant aesthetic, blending with various architectural styles while providing optimal functionality. Embracing sustainability is a step towards creating a more environmentally conscious living environment and planet for ourselves and future generations.
