Some people favour aluminium because of its environmental impact, others are fans of the design possibilities. Why would you choose aluminium as a material for your new windows and doors? We list ten reasons to make that choice a little easier. 

It is no coincidence that aluminium is used for windows, doors, and façades in some of the most prestigious and iconic new buildings around the world. Aluminium is an abundant material that is infinitely recyclable with no loss of quality. As well as that, the industry-leading thermal insulation offered by aluminium helps anyone with an eye on energy-efficiency. But that’s not all- explore more of the benefits of aluminium below.

1. Long Lifespan 

Choosing aluminium is a choice for life. Aluminium windows and doors will remain beautiful for years and years. They are not affected by UV-rays or moisture, and when maintained properly they do not warp, corrode or rot. 

2. Thermal & acoustic insulation 

Aluminium solutions offer excellent thermal insulation. An aluminium window insulates well against both the cold and the heat. Combined with acoustic glass, aluminium guarantees optimal soundproof solutions. 


3. Design that fits your needs 

Enjoy creative freedom with all kinds of shapes and styles. Choose from a wide range of design options, from sleek contemporary to rustic historical. Moreover, aluminium profiles come in almost every size. There is always a system that meets your needs. 

4. Sustainability is key 

Aluminium is 100% recyclable. The recycling process takes a minimum amount of energy, without loss of quality of the material. Think of the sustainable benefit: the low U-values of our aluminium products will contribute to your energy savings and help to reduce the environmental impact of your project.  

5. Endless Colour Options 

Select your favourite colour and coating option. Aluminium profiles can be anodised or painted in more than 400 RAL colours and different finish types. Contemporary, traditional, or minimalistic style? There is an aluminium solution for every  home. 

6. Versatility 

Versatility is aluminium’s second nature. Expansion and contraction caused by changes in temperature are kept to a minimum, making aluminium the preferred choice for bi-fold and lift and slide patio doors, or any large-size windows. It is an ultra-light yet robust material that can create complex structures effortlessly.  

 7. Fire protection – Burglar resistance 

Aluminium is very strong, non-flammable, and integrates smoothly with technologies and systems that further enhance safety and protection. Most Reynaers systems can be offered as burglar-resistant, while our fireproof range includes offerings of 30 and 60 minute solutions. 

8.Ease of maintenance 

Aluminium windows and doors are very low-maintenance, requiring only a wash with soapy water a couple of times a year. Select from hundreds of hard-wearing, durable colour finishes and rest assured that the aluminium will never need repainting. 


9. Made to measure 

Our carefully selected partners have exclusive access to our design software systems – and the expertise to measure, supply and install beautiful bespoke windows and doors for your home. The automated-controlled cutting of the profiles and the precise assembly of the finished product enables a smooth and flawless installation of all our aluminium solutions.  

10. State-of-the art products 

Aluminium will not let you down. With a world-class testing and design centre and over 50 years of industry experience, Reynaers Aluminium is proud to be pushing the boundaries of product quality. All our products are tested to exceed both local and international standards, allowing them to be featured in some of the most challenging locations around the world.
