Benefits of using Aluminium

Thermally efficient

The Vista Glaze Aluminium range is enhanced with polyamide thermal barrier technology, enabling the windows and doors to exceed the energy performance requirements of current Building Regulations. Profiles used in all products from the Vista Glaze Aluminium range have a very high resistance to heat transfer from the inner face of the frame to the external face of the frame, giving superior thermal efficiency and reduced condensation.

The roof frame is the most thermally efficient in the UK domestic conservatory market.

Long-lasting colour

Powder-coated aluminium is one of the most durable finishes available for windows and doors. It won’t discolour, rust or peel, giving it a long-lasting, attractive appearance.

All aluminium products from the Vista Glaze Aluminium range come with superior guarantees. This guarantee covers the powder-coating against the following faults:

  • peeling, powdering and blistering
  • corrosion
  • chalking, fading and loss of sheen

High Strength

Aluminium, by its very nature, is a strong material compared to PVCu and doesn’t require additional reinforcements.

The superior strength of aluminium allows for larger arrangements which are only possible with timber or PVCu when using bulky profiles and couplers.

Most PVCu bi-folds can only extend to 750mm-wide sashes; the Vista Glaze Aluminium Bi-folding Doors can accommodate 1200mm sashes.

Slimmer profile

The slimmer and stronger aluminium frames increase the ratio of glass to frame therefore letting more light into your home.

Clean joints and subtle lines offer a luxurious finish for homeowners to admire.


Ease of maintenance

Aluminium is easy to keep looking great and is virtually maintenance free. Modern powder-coating delivers a hard-wearing finish which will last for years.

With occasional cleaning and periodic lubrication of locks and hinges, aluminium windows and doors will look and operate ‘as-new’ for longer.

Better functionality

Aluminium is a durable substance, therefore windows and doors made from aluminium will continue to open and slide smoothly over many years.

Environmentally friendly

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable, and when recycled uses just 5% of the total energy needed to produce frames from scratch.
