The assets of Aluminium
In order to meet the countless technological and social challenges, architects and designers are constantly in search of new building concepts. Thanks to its unique characteristics, aluminium is able to play an important role in the design of environmentally friendly and sustainable construction projects.
Aluminium: the solution
Through the use of light aluminium façades for new construction projects, less material is required, resulting in a lighter supporting structure. This amounts to savings in both construction and maintenance costs. Yet aluminium also represents the solution for refurbishment work when it comes to giving buildings a complete overhaul.
The use of aluminium in building applications is continually on the rise. This trend is due to a number of considerable advantages offered by aluminium:
- Flexible and aesthetic design. Aluminium profiles are available in all kinds of forms, colours and finishes.
- Optimal thermal and acoustic insulation capacity. Aluminium profiles are constantly improving in terms of performance, and comply with all current standards, even the most demanding.
- High strength/weight ratio. Aluminium meets all requirements with respect to performance capacity, with load on the supporting structure kept to a minimum. As a result, aluminium is highly suitable for building renovation work.
- Long useful life and fully recyclable. . Aluminium applications have a long useful life, require less maintenance and are fully recyclable.
