How to Improve on Aluminium Double Glazed Windows In Melbourne

There is a lot to be said for the way aluminium double glazed windows look. There is a certain sleekness about them, a thin profile that is surprisingly strong. And that is all great because they look good. However, there is one big drawback with aluminium: it is an excellent thermal conductor and therefore does not last long. Normally, excellence is a good thing, but in this case, it is the opposite. Why? Because a thermal conductor is a material that is easy for heat and cold to move through. That’s why aluminium is used for making cooking pans because it allows heat from the oven or hob to penetrate evenly through to the food that is being cooked.

The limitations of Aluminium Double Glazed Windows in Melbourne Weather

Outside the kitchen setting aluminium, also allows the cold through. Being such a good transmitter of heat and cold, aluminium expands and contracts a lot with changing temperatures caused by Melbourne weather. This causes the two panes of glass to move around a lot, causing the seals to degrade, often leading to leaks and internal condensation. That means aluminium double-glazed windows in Melbourne are not a great idea. The whole point of double glazing is to keep the cold out if it’s cold outside and keep the heat out if it’s warm out there. Double glazing was invented specifically for that: keeping heat and cold where you want them. Obviously, if the glass itself, with its little gap between the panes to prevent temperature transmission, is doing what it was designed to do, you don’t want the frame around the edges to let the side down by allowing heat or cold to waltz into the building without so much as the opening of a window or door. It’s insanity. We must, therefore, get past the physical attraction of aluminium and focus on its suitability or otherwise in certain important respects. Read More
The world has largely come to terms with the limitations of wood for windows. Even expensive woods will give up the ghost all too soon, given the ravages of weather and the relentless march of time. Several years ago, the building industry came to terms with this and abandoned the use of wood for window frames. It was a shame, but there it is: commonsense. Double glazing installers moved on to aluminium. Steel had been tried a long time ago, and we’ve all seen the sad, rusted remains of that attempt at progress. Aluminium, while not as strong as steel, could be used because the glass itself lent some rigidity to the situation. It took a while, though, for us all to realise that the thermal conductivity of aluminium was a problem in itself. The innovators continued their search and what they came up with was uPVC: a light, rigid man-made material that was ideal for shaping into frames for both windows and doors. And uPVC doesn’t have anything like the thermal conductivity of aluminium, so if it’s cold outside, you’re not going to find that creeping through the material the frame is made of, even making it suitable for double glazed front doors.

uPVC is an attractive enough material in its own right but the majority of it is plain white, and some people want something a bit different. Some simply can’t shake off this obsession with aluminium. Well, here’s the thing: uPVC can be produced in a range of colours from cream to black. If you prefer timber look uPVC windows in browns and golds and aluminium look windows, there are no limitations. So there you have it: the best of both worlds. Excellent rigidity, resistance to temperature transmission, and it looks like its stylish old cousin Al. Read Less
