If you’re building a new home or renovating an existing home, you may be wondering which window systems and styles best suit your building, perhaps you are looking for information on the sizes and configurations of different types of windows by aluminium joinery Auckland providers. In this article, you will learn everything about important details so that you can make an informed choice. After all, it’s a decision you’ll probably live with throughout the years to come, so it’s important to make the right choice. 

Why Choose Aluminium Windows?

Owing to the various advantages they offer, aluminium windows have become one of the most popular window options in Auckland. They are inexpensive, strong and durable and combine functionality and versatility with an elegant, modern accent. Aluminium windows are an extremely durable and economical solution for residential and commercial buildings. They are virtually maintenance-free and can last a lifetime, do not rust, and even have a high corrosion threshold. Aluminium windows are available in standard sizes, but can also be made in custom sizes and designs to meet your specific needs. They are available in different coatings depending on the style. It is also worth knowing that aluminium window frames can be equipped with different types of glass. This applies to safety glass, aesthetic glass, acoustic glass, fire protection glass and bulletproof glass. They can also be double glazed and offer greater energy efficiency.

Swing Windows

Swing windows are also called projected windows or sash windows. The sash refers to the opening sections that swing out of the outer window frame. Swing windows can take two forms: suspended from the side and above. The wings of the hanging windows above are attached to the upper part of the outer frame and open upwards. With windows hanging from the side, the wings open to the left or to the right. The advantage of swing windows is that their design provides optimal control over wind, rain and ventilation to the exact degree. They are especially useful when installed on the side of the building resistant to weather conditions because they protect against rain and allow you to control the amount of wind. You can simply let them open a little to circulate in the air or open them to 90 degrees. When it rains, you can open it at an angle where you want to let in the wind, but no rain. This type of window is ideal if you want to use cross ventilation to cool the house. You can also pair these windows with sidelights or skylights. They are perfect for rooms such as home office, living room, bedroom and kitchen. 

Awning Windows 

Aluminium awning windows are generally open to the outside. They are often used in small rooms because they do not take up much space. Grouping not only looks aesthetically pleasing but also helps to introduce most of the light. An additional advantage is that you can install a winder with a limited opening, which allows you to safely leave the window open even in the heaviest rain. 

Sliding Windows 

Sliding windows have an inconspicuous design, especially in cases where the room has no wings protruding outwards. Horizontal sliding windows are delivered in 2, 3 or 4 panes depending on the width of the window. They are available in various standard sizes, up to 3 m wide and up to 1.5 m high, but larger special sizes are also possible. We also offer several different sliding window systems, some with narrow profiles and others with bulky profiles, so you can choose the system that best suits your building. Sliding windows perfectly match other fasteners, such as windows with fixed glass, sliding doors or folding doors. These windows can also be paired with sidelights or skylights.

Pivot Aluminium Window

Pivot windows look contemporary and provide a lot of natural light. To open them, release the upper and lower latches and slide the windows outwards. They appear as both single and double disks. These types of wings, support points and awnings offer exceptional sound and heat performance because the frames are closest to each other and minimise spacing. 

Stacking Windows 

These modern, innovative windows let in more air and provide a clear view of the surroundings. The windows are arranged exactly like the stacked doors but have the dimensions of the window. They consist of several panels that, when opened, fold together. Depending on the overall width of the opening, between 3 and 10 panels can be used. The panels are stacked neatly and compactly and can be opened effortlessly by sliding. These windows are ideal for installation overlooking the garden or natural outdoor area. They can also be used as a practical wall that opens between rooms, such as the living room and kitchen. In a commercial environment, they can be used to open or close a manhole in the canteen.
