It provides a strong, as well as an economical solution for any domestic and commercial appearance. The aluminium window frame is 3 times stronger than PVC and 4.3 times stronger than wood.

The powder coating comes with a wide color range, which gives you the freedom to create the look according to the required appearance. It also includes unique pearl, metallic and timber finishes.
Aluminium windows and doors contribute an excellent thermal and sound insulation, which meets current building regulations. The efficiency of thermal performance in aluminium is comparatively higher than timber or PVC. An aluminium frame, which is fabricated with high performance aluminium, is able to exceed energy efficiency standards and can achieve improvements in heat gain and heat loss through windows by 60%.
