Learn all the advantages of choosing aluminium for your windows and doors

Aluminium is regarded as one of the best materials when it comes to durability, aesthetics and security of windows and doors. Aluminium is also strong and lightweight which gives it a distinct advantage for large expanses of glass to bring the outside in. Let's look at the importance of choosing aluminium as a material for your windows and doors.

Here you will find all the reasons to choose aluminium windows and doors for your home:

Design and aesthetics 

When you invest in new aluminium doors and windows, you want stylishly designed, expertly engineered products which enhance not just your home but the way you live in it. 

Within the inspiring AluK range, we’ll help you make the perfect choice – from traditionally styled windows which beautifully balance form and function to contemporary sliding doors which open up your living space as never before. 

They all feature slim sightlines so there’s more glazing and less frame on show, and all enable you to flood your home with natural light. You don’t need to feel limited by size or space either; our systems can carry large expanses of glazing to help you make the most of any view. 


Choose quality windows and doors from AluK and you can relax knowing that they have been rigorously tested to keep out the very worst that the elements can throw at them. Our advanced engineering technology guarantees less noise, no dust and the ultimate protection from tropical wind and rain. 

Of course, the whole range is highly thermally efficient as well, so your home stays warm, cosy, and draught free while you save money on your energy bills. 

And our decades of experience deliver outstanding product performance too, meaning that our windows and doors will stay looking good and operating smoothly and effortlessly for years to come, with only minimal maintenance needed. 

Tried and Tested 

Every door and window system in the AluK range is fully tested and accredited to the highest international standards for air/water/wind penetration and for security and durability. 


We know that what matters most to our customers is keeping their homes and families safe and secure. That’s why we design all of our windows and doors with lots of smart security features as standard. 


One of the biggest benefits of aluminium is that you can really make it your own. Select from a huge range of AluK colours and finishes to truly enhance your home, and even mix and match single and dual colour options to find the perfect combination. 

All our windows and doors and finished to the highest international standards of course. When it comes to quality, there are simply no compromises. 

Our name is on it 

All of the gaskets, fittings and accessories used in the Hemera Collection are proudly branded AluK too – that’s your guarantee of our quality. 


All you need to do to keep your windows and doors looking their very best is to wash them down a few times a year to get rid of any dirt or dust. That’s all there is to it. They don’t crack or fade in the sun and there’s no scrubbing or painting required – leaving you more time to relax and enjoy your view. 

Our Network 

When you buy AluK aluminium windows and doors, you’re buying from our network of trusted and experienced fabrication partners. These are independent, highly skilled businesses who we know live up to our exacting standards on quality and share our commitment to providing outstanding customer service. 

They can give expert advice on exactly which products will be right for your home and support you every step of the way from initial enquiry right through to after sales service and warranty. 

All our fabrication partners are fully trained and supported by AluK at every stage, meaning that our customers get the best of both worlds - all the design and manufacturing capacity of a big global group, and all the convenience, responsiveness and friendly support of a locally based company. 

A Sustainable Choice 

Aluminium is probably the ideal construction material for today’s modern world. Inherently strong, durable, and low maintenance; it is highly fire resistant and doesn’t age or fade. More importantly, it’s a sustainable resource which can be recycled over and over again with absolutely no deterioration in the quality. In fact, up to 90% of all the aluminium now used in construction has been recycled at least once, using just a tiny proportion of the energy which was required to make it in the first place. 

AluK’s window and door systems are designed to last for generations of course, but it’s good to know that when they do eventually come to be replaced, the aluminium they contain can be recycled all over again.
