Types of aluminum windows

Varies types of aluminum windows can meet the needs of different customers for home design. Here are a some popular aluminum window types

Types #1 Broken bridge aluminum windows

Broken bridge aluminum windows have better performance than ordinary aluminum alloy windows, energy-saving, sound insulation, noise prevention, dustproof, waterproof and other functions. Broken bridge aluminum is used to cut off hot and cold bridges.

Because of the aluminum alloy metal have a good performance in heat transfer, therefore, when the temperature between indoor and outdoor is very different, the aluminum alloy becomes a “bridge” , It is disconnected from the middle and is connected to the aluminum alloy on both sides by a heat insulation strip, so that heat is not easily transferred, so it is called a broken bridge aluminum alloy.

Advantages of broken bridge aluminum doors and windows

1. Reduce heat conduction :

Use heat-insulated broken bridge aluminum alloy profiles, taking the system doors and windows canonical system as an example. Its thermal conductivity is much lower than ordinary aluminum alloy profiles.

2. Prevent condensation :

The temperature of the inner surface of the profile with the heat insulation strip is close to the indoor temperature, reducing the possibility of the indoor moisture condensing on the glass surface due to supersaturation.

3. Energy-saving:

In winter, the window frame with heat insulation strip can reduce 1/3 of the heat lost through the window frame; in summer, if it is air-conditioned, the window frame with heat insulation strip can be more Reduce energy loss as much as possible.

4, protect the environment :

Through the application of thermal insulation systems, energy consumption can be reduced, and environmental pollution due to air conditioning and heating can be reduced

5. Reduce noise :

The use of hollow glass structures with different thicknesses and aluminum bridge cavity structures with thermal insulation can effectively reduce the resonance effect of sound waves, prevent sound transmission, and reduce noise.

Types #2 Wooden-clad aluminum windows

Wooden clad aluminum windows combine the advantages of energy-saving aluminum alloy windows and wooden windows, which can effectively block heat convection, conduction, and radiation outside the window, reducing heat loss. The good ventilation function of doors and windows makes indoor air circulation smooth. This type of aluminum windows is used outdoors which retains the excellent weather resistance and neat and precise style of aluminum alloy windows.

Features of wooden clad aluminum windows:

1. Thermal insulation:

The profile of wood-clad aluminum windows uses the principle of equal pressure to improve airtightness and water tightness, which effectively prevents heat transfer. It is inlaid with wood near the indoor side, and the hollow glass further prevents heat from being transmitted on the window.

2. Color coordination:

Wood-clad aluminum windows can be processed into different colors according to requirements so that outdoor profiles and building exterior decoration can be unified; and indoor can also choose solid wood of different materials to match the interior decoration. , And then add luster to the overall home.

3. Sound insulation:

Tightly designed aluminum windows for thermally insulated broken bridges, coupled with hollow glass, can effectively prevent the intrusion of noise.

4. Environmental protection:

Wood-clad aluminum windows will not produce harmful substances in the production process, and will be recycled and reused, with a loss of 3.5% -5.5% per cycle, which is of great significance to resource utilization and environmental protection.

5. Aesthetics:

The wooden-clad aluminum window is opened inwardly and inwardly. The inwardly opened state is mainly used for cleaning, and the inwardly inclined is mainly used for ventilation. This not only maintains the overall aesthetics of the building but also solves the problem of space occupied by the window opening The problem.

6. High strength:

The wooden clad aluminum window is made of aluminum alloy profile, and it is assembled by using the interlocking connector with the extrusion process, so its strong performance is high and its rigidity is good.

Why's importance of aluminum materials

In recent years, aluminum and aluminum alloy materials have become more and more widely used in the field of doors and windows. Aluminum is an important part of aluminum windows. In manufacturing any style of aluminum window, high-quality aluminum materials are inseparable. Aluminum alloy profiles have the characteristics of light weight, good formability, high strength, corrosion resistance, and recyclability.

Advantages of aluminum alloy material

(1)Light and soft: The density of aluminum is 2171 g / cm3, which is about one-third of the density of steel (7187 g / cm3); the Young’s modulus is also about one-third of steel.

(2) Good strength: The tensile strength of pure aluminum is about 80 MN / m2, which is one fifth of the low carbon steel. However, after heat treatment and alloying, its strength will increase significantly. For example, the commonly used material of aluminum alloy car body 6005A -T6, its low tensile strength is 360 MN / m2, which can reach the corresponding strength value of low carbon steel

(3)Good corrosion resistance: One of the characteristics of aluminum alloy is that a dense oxide film will be formed on the surface when exposed to air. This film can prevent corrosion, so the corrosion resistance is good. If the “aluminum oxide film treatment method” is applied to it, corrosion will be completely prevented.

(4)Good processing performance: The extrusion performance of rail vehicle profiles is good, and secondary machining and bending processing are also easier.

(5)Easy to regenerate: Aluminum has a low melting point (660 ° C) and simple regeneration. It is also pollution-free during disposal, which is conducive to environmental protection and consistent with the sustainable development strategy.

How to improve the insulation performance of aluminum alloy doors and windows?

(1) Use heat insulation strips, and the frame fan insulation strips are on the same horizontal line;

(2) Increase the width of the insulation strips, and when it reaches a certain level, add other measures to reduce convection and heat radiation;

(3) reduce aluminum Section of the material;

(4) For the shape, generally the right angle gets better Uf value than the rounded corner;

windows maintenance

(5) the larger the width of the insulation zone and the width of the profile, the better;

(6) increase the height of the insulation cavity;

(7) Generally, when the isotherm is perpendicular to the direction of heat flow, a better Uf value can be obtained. The position of the heat insulation strip on the frame fan and the air layer of the insulating glass are on the same horizontal plane.

Conclusion:

Aluminium windows are a trend, very stylish, beautiful and versatile. Generally, aluminum alloy doors and windows are made of relatively strong aluminum alloy materials in the manufacturing process. After undergoing a series of processes, these aluminum alloy doors and windows can meet many functional requirements.
