When purchasing windows, whether for a new-build or renovation project, there are two main considerations. The first and most important are the physical requirements for the window itself. This includes the size needed, material to match the existing structure, the climate in your region and the location of the window.
For example, a second floor window need not consider burglar protection while insulation is still important. A home on the coast will also require a tougher exterior due to salt water exposure compared to one further inland.
After identifying those basic requirements, the second consideration is naturally personal taste and wishes. This can also include the type of material(s) you choose whether vinyl, wood or a wood with aluminum cladding. With wood, you have the further choice of the specific species as well. Features such as glazing bars, the interior and exterior colors and handle types all need to be taken into account.
With our online configuration tool, aluminum clad wood windows can be created and designed in just a few steps. We'll lead you through all the options step by step, so that you get the exact window you desire and won't need to worry about forgetting something.
The following woods are available for use in our alu-clad products:
After choosing the color and the type of window, we'll ask for the window dimensions to ensure the feasibility and accuracy of your specific build.
Your next choice is between double or triple glazing which can then be further configured with the combination of features you'd like such as security glass, soundproofing glass, ornamental glass and more.
Especially for homes near heavily trafficked areas, choosing special glazing to reduce outside noise is a wise and much appreciated choice. We offer several different classes of soundproofing glass with noise reduction levels from 32 up to 45 decibels.
A reduction in the level of noise by just 10dB is audibly perceived by people as nearly halving the amount of noise.
Protection against possible burglary is one of the main duties of a modern window. Besides the quality of the hardware and the window's overall strength, the main avenue of attack is the glass. This makes your choice of glazing particularly important in ground floor windows for example. Adding toughened or laminated safety glass, as well as upgrading security hardware (i.e. additional locking points around the frame) can make a very big difference.
Depending on a window's location, privacy may be the highest priority. On a second floor bathroom window, security may not be an issue but privacy is instead the top priority. Choosing an ornamental glazing in this case, creates a window that still allows plenty of natural light in and can be opened or tilted for ventilation all while ensuring that no one can see inside.
Made of two different materials, aluminum clad wood windows are particularly easy to adapt to a wide range of needs and requirements. With modern windows, you no longer need to choose between aesthetics and functionality to meet all the requirements for your new build or renovation project. Whether you need privacy, insulation, sound proofing or all of the above, you can configure your own unique combination of features based on your project's needs, location and climate requirements.
