Aluminium. A key material in the energy efficiency of buildings
Aluminium windows and doors, a prestigious website about aluminium in Architecture, has released a report on the beneficial impact of aluminium in energy savings and efficiency.
The enclosures have a large influence in the energy consumption that we make. The data enables us to say that loss of energy through enclosures can reach up to 25% of the total energy lost.
Aluminium is one of the most sustainable industries.
Aluminium carpentry in energy efficiency
Outward-facing holes are the main critical point of energy loss in the building envelope. Aluminium carpentry systems with thermal bridge break save up to 40% of the energy that is wasted. If good glazing is added to this, it becomes a highly energy-efficient enclosure.
Industry continues to move from production to use and recycling.
