Although, aluminium louvre windows are becoming an increasingly popular choice amongst Australian homeowners. There still are people who don’t realise the benefits louvred windows offer and often believe installing them is an expensive affair. Which you know isn’t true at all!
Louvres are a sustainable way to cut down heating and cooling costs and are an effective system for controlling the climate in the house and guiding clean, fresh air in while ushering stale air out.
With the right type of louvres in the house, there are benefits to be had that homeowners are unaware of, such as with multi-functional and high-performance external aluminium louvres. Let’s have a look at them.
Aluminium is so versatile that it can be shaped to just match anybody’s requirements to install into the designated space for a louvre without much difficulty. This means you are limited only by your imagination.
With an endless array of finishes, systems, glass options, aluminium offers a wide range of possibilities – from the most cost-effective to most elaborate systems while also delivering performance. Also, several other kinds of louvres that can be fabricated from aluminium determined by the kind of ventilation needed.
Amongst all the materials used in construction, aluminium is one of the most environmentally friendly materials. Being 100% recyclable, aluminium can be reprocessed and reused many times without ever losing its physical properties. This nature of aluminium helps the environment greatly in a positive way since there is no need for it to be dumped into a landfill. Installing fixed aluminium louvres only adds to the sustainability that this type of ventilation system exhibits through energy efficiency.
Despite a substantial difference in weight compared to other materials like steel or copper, aluminium is one of the sturdiest materials that can be used, so much so that its lightweight property combined with its tensile strength and durability gives it a good strength to weight ratio.
Also, aluminium is resistant to corrosion and is resistant to weathering under severe environmental conditions. Unlike many other materials, aluminium will not crack, swell, split or warp over time: ensuring an extended lifespan of the product.
A wide range of finishing options ensures aluminium louvres can be perfectly matched to any decor.
Powder coating, available in hundreds of colours, provides an attractive finish to aluminium louvres and once coated doesn’t require repainting.
High-performance aluminium shutters protect the room from excess amounts of sun, heat, wind and cold. Therefore, aluminium louvres meet and often exceed energy efficiency standards.
Aluminium louvres can also be adjusted to control the amount of sunlight entering the house.
Aluminium doesn’t rust, is resistance to corrosion, thus allowing aluminium louvres to have a long lifespan and keep its presentation without being impaired by severe weather conditions and other elements. Aluminium louvres, therefore, do not only serve a functional aspect. Since they are highly accepting of coatings, they can be transformed into an aesthetically pleasing add-on that increases the curb appeal of the home when the right finish and colour are chosen.
Due to increased awareness and an emergent need to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle has come the increased demand for even more sustainable building materials in construction. Aluminium louvres perfectly fit into this scenario and offer many more benefits for a high-functioning ventilation system. They are cost-effective, providing a strong yet economical window solution.
