02 / EXTERIOR CARPENTRY WOOD-ALUMINUM
In order to comply with the time, by which we mean the development of civil engineering, architecture, climate change, the need for sustainable development, environmental protection, long term solutions and lower costs, there was a need for the development of wood-aluminum carpentry. In fact, many studies have shown that wood not only has the highest thermal and sound insulation but it is a natural material which gives the most beautiful and the most pleasant interior atmosphere of residential or business premises. As such, the wood makes the perfect raw material for the production of carpentry.
However, time has shown a major drawback of wood- its sensitivity to external conditions. Of course, proper maintenance can extend the product life. The example of this are numerous historical buildings. Only it should be noted, all this costs money and the question is how much it is worth. On the other hand, aluminum is a material that proved to be very resistant to weather changes, light and easy to use for all demanding architectural solutions, it seems ideal for modern and contemporary residential and commercial buildings. However, although a solid material, aluminum is a very bad insulator. Specifically, a large thermal conductivity leads to leakage of heat in summer and cold in winter, leaving doors and windows made of this material absolutely without their purpose.
It is for all these reasons, experts have come up with the idea to combine these two materials and extract their best features. Due to the needs of modern society, in order to create better and more economical living conditions as well as the need to be in line with the times, this type of carpentry was created. A perfect combination that took the best from both materials. Endurance of aluminum and thermal conductivity of wood. Since in practice we very often make mistakes, it is important to emphasize that in the market there are: alu-wood and wood-aluminum carpentry, which are two different types of carpentry. Although they both have the same materials in their composition, alu-wood carpentry as the base (the profile) has aluminum, which is only coated with wood on the inner side. On the other hand, wood-aluminum carpentry as the base (profile) has wood, which is coated with aluminum on the outer side. When you are buying a product, you are buying it in order to perform the function for which it is intended and to last as long as possible. For this reason you should choose wood-aluminum carpentry. Excellent resistance to corrosion, high and low temperatures as well as the impression of being new regardless of the long period of use. Once you install wood-aluminum carpentry, the next two generations will be grateful to you. In other words, you will be remembered for good.
Easy and simple maintenance on the one hand and the ability and availability of profiles in a variety of colours, contribute to easy integration with the surrounding architecture. You will not stick out in the surrounding but you will stand out by good.
