Aluminum Frames Products
Curiosity: The frame was the piece in which the two-flap windows fit. They were trapped in the wall outside the window. Today it has become usual to designate as frame any frame, generally of aluminum with a lowering to the entire length of its perimeter in which plates, usually of glass, like glass and windows, are fitted. For this purpose, suitable masses are used to secure the plates to the frame or frame assembly.
Cold Aluminum – It is the conventional aluminum, with very basic acoustic and thermal characteristics in which you can put single or double glass.Available for opening and sliding systems. Thermal aluminum – This guarantees a good thermal and acoustic insulation that is ensured by polyamide, which serves as a barrier to heat transfer or cold. To fully enjoy your investment, we advise you to add low heat coefficient double glass.
There are several types of glass, but the most relevant is the thermal and acoustic factor it offers. Simple glass – It confers the basic blocking of external elements.Fractical acoustic and thermal factor with strong probability of condensation Double glass – Provides greater comfort than plain glass due to its air box. Although the acoustic and thermal factor is better, it is still basic compared to thermal glass and prone to condensation when there is great thermal variation. Double thermal glass – Considerable thermal and acoustic comfort when combined with argon gas inside. It is advisable to place it in thermal aluminum. Condensation probability is almost null Triple glass – Glass is more suitable for commercial structures. The thermal coefficient is sometimes lower than double glass, even though it is low emissive having only improved acoustic function.
The systems offered in the range of aluminum have high levels of security against intrusion. There are several types of reinforced hinges, latches, latches and locks adaptable to any type of aluminum. The thickness of the aluminum itself is also a point in its favor due to the robustness of the material that gives better resistance against environmental factors (strong stone, projection of rocks and debris in sells, etc …) As far as fire safety is concerned, aluminum windows are much more fire resistant than PVC windows and are probably one of the strongest points to choose aluminum.
Because aluminum is a more resistant material, it has a durability of more than 15 years while fully maintaining its functionalities of security and operation having rarely to do some adjustments and adjustments. PVC windows have less durability than aluminum windows, especially in areas where there is a large thermal amplitude because the degree of PVC expansion is about 2.5 times greater than that of aluminum and tends to be damaged.
In terms of acoustic performance there is no significant difference between the aluminum window and the PVC window because the most important at this point is the thickness of the frame. When compared to thermal aluminum and PVC windows, the thermal coefficient factor is practically the same. However it is worth the resistance of the material and seals in the frame.
In a first step a pre-treatment is made to clean and prepare the aluminum to protect it from corrosion and to maximize the adhesion of the paint. The lacquering of the aluminum with powder coating takes place through electrostatic deposition and polymerization at temperatures close to 200 ° C. This process makes the surface highly resistant to severe weather conditions, guaranteeing the final customer a product of high quality and durability. The lacquer allows to obtain an extensive range of colors ranging from the classic finishes, gloss or matte, also passing through special textured and metalized lacquers among many others currently available in the market.
