Light yet strong, aluminum windows and doors can be used in a wide variety of situations. The narrowness of the frame places the focus on the glass and subsequently, the view it offers. Milgard aluminum frames are available in anodized or baked-on finishes for long lasting color. Sealed, mechanically joined corners stay square and true over years of use.
Aluminum products are not recommended in beach homes next to the sea. While aluminium is water resistant, it can suffer corrosion and pitting from salt water and salt air. The corrosion affects hardware operation and frame performance, as well as the surface appearance of the products.
Compared with vinyl, fiberglass and wood frames, aluminum conducts heat and cold the least well. To reduce heat flow, Milgard offers a Thermally Improved Aluminum frame in select regions. Thermally Improved Aluminum windows and doors are equipped with thermal breaks to separate the interior and exterior surfaces and improve energy efficiency.
Please note that, not all Aluminum window/ doors will work for every application or project, as some building code requirements may require a window with better U-Factors.
