Pros & Cons On Aluminium Casement Windows

Whether you own a commercial or residential presence in Orchard Road, East Coast, Bedok or any other thriving area of Singapore, you would probably want a deeper insight into the pros and cons connected with an aluminium casement window. Here we discuss some of the important benefits as well as disadvantages of installing aluminium casement windows in your environment. Take a look.

Pros And Cons On Aluminium Casement Windows 

Advantages of Aluminium Casement Windows

They are versatile, attractive, come in a variety of custom and pre-set designs and shapes and can be painted in just about any color. Appropriate for your posh homes and office spaces alike, these aluminium casement windows are durable, effective in keeping out sound and air pollution and boast of great strength. They are easy-to-maintain and clean and are quite resistant to cracks, dents and breaks. They also prove to be the perfect choice for Singapore’s mild climate. 

Durability/Strength
Aluminium is a strong metal and proves to be tougher than vinyl, wood, plastic or other fabricated materials used for manufacturing casement windows. Once fitted in the correct manner to a framework, these windows are long lasting and tough to dislodge or loosen. 

Cost
Aluminium windows are not as expensive as their wooden counterparts. They are available in the middle of the cost spectrum and are quite similar to the upper/mid price ranged vinyl windows—as far as the initial cost is concerned. 

Maintenance
An aluminum casement window requires negligible or nil maintenance on a day-to-day basis. It is highly resistant to splitting, cracking, rust or shrinking. These naturally durable windows never rust, rot, flake or peel off. You can choose from a range of self cleaning glasses to make your maintenance tasks easier. 

Colors and Variety
Aluminium casement windows are usually available in a myriad range of sizes and colors. They can be purchased various metallic or anodized tints. You can also choose dual colored aluminium frames-- wherein you get a white look inside with a black coat on the outside. Their color matched aluminium handles and trims also come in various glazing options, such as Georgian bars. These windows are quite appealing and enhance the aesthetics of your interior space—in more ways than one. 

Market Share
Overall, aluminium windows are nice looking and boast of a large share in the commercial as well as residential markets. Their durability and other benefits make them the first option for architects, interior designers and homemakers alike. However, in comparison to vinyl windows, they sport a more industrial /commercial look-- rather than a residential one. 

Reduction of Noise
Aluminium casement windows weigh more and contain more mass than materials like vinyl and plastic. As a result, they are more equipped to keep out external noise from the interiors of your home or offices. These windows usually contain 20mm Argon-filled gaps with double draft-resistant seals as well as double rebated designs. They come with double glazing to make your environment quieter 

Secure
Casement windows from reputed companies come packaged with a smart steel locking mechanism. These multi-point bi-directional locks ensure the highest standards of security and are usually beaded from the inside—to ensure that the encased glass is not easily removed from the outside. 

Warmer
An aluminium casement window is specifically designed to prevent any heat transfer via the frame. It comes insulated with a Polyamide core and is usually combined with Argon filed gaps to minimize the loss of heat. It boasts of a B-Rating for general thermal performance. 

Peace of mind
Reputed manufacturers or aluminium casement windows usually provide a long term guarantee against discoloration of your aluminium profile and ensure the least condensation and fogging in the sealed units. This helps in providing greater peace of mind and makes your investments reap higher value for money. 

In a nutshell, these casement windows are exciting, classy, practical, affordable and versatile. However, they come with their own set of disadvantages. Take a quick peep into the one that matter most. 
 
Heat Conductors
Aluminum casement windows have a large drawback -- they are very good conductors of cold and heat and therefore provide poor energy efficiency. As a result of this disadvantage, more energy is wasted by air-conditioning and heating systems; to maintain the desired temperature in an environment enclosed by aluminium windows. However, builders sacrifice the linked heat loss/gain for the durability and strength provided by aluminium frameworks—especially for larger sized window openings. 

Aluminium windows are futuristic and smart and a good choice for all internal spaces –especially if you succeed in overlooking its few disadvantages.
