From aesthetics to performance, aluminium offers many advantages. It has a long lifespan, is endlessly recyclable, highly durable, with a wide range of finishes and maintenance-free. Discover on this page everything you need to know about aluminium windows and doors for your beautiful home.
Lots of the window and door systems in AluK’s range are described as being Secured by Design accredited – but what’s behind the letters SBD?
We don’t supply direct to homeowners, rather to a network of independent fabrication partners across the UK who use our materials to manufacture windows, entrance doors, sliders and bifolds in line with our strict guidelines.
Aluminium windows and doors are sometimes thought of as being a relatively expensive option – certainly more expensive than PVC-U and probably on a par with timber at the beginning. But when you weigh up how much they cost over their lifetime and compare that directly with PVC-U and timber, then the picture is actually very different.
Did you know that glazed windows have only been around for about seven hundred years?
Before then, our ancestors used to get by with holes in the wall covered with cloth and paper.
French doors really did originate in France. During the 17th century Renaissance, it became fashionable to have more light and open space in your home, first in France and then in the rest of Europe, and double glass doors started to replace solid wooden doors between rooms.
