Dubai has come a long way as a city since it first started not all that long ago; while it’s remarkable that we’ve turned a dessert into one of the world’s busiest cities, the fact that Dubai is a dessert still remains. All the buildings in Dubai are built in a way that keeps the harsh heat of the day out and the cool of the air conditioning in. Now there are many ways to achieve this but if there’s one area in any building where heat enters and escapes the most, then it’s the windows.
One of the reason why there are so many successful aluminium and glass companies in Dubai is because of how useful aluminium window frames are in the city. Unlike most metals, aluminium has the ability to resist heat; it’s light weight and can face direct sunlight without absorbing the heat and bringing it indoors. By using aluminium in your windows, you can reduce your heat loss and gain by about 60%.
In the long run, having aluminium windows is going to save you big money on your heating and cooling bills and as an additional benefit, you might also help reduce the carbon footprint of the city in the winters. You see, when you’re losing your heat from your gas heaters from your windows, you’re going to burn more gas and create more carbon.
Aluminium is also less prone to damage from the outside elements of the harsh weather; it’s resistant to corrosion, it doesn’t rust and it won’t split and crack due to the dry heat either. Altogether, aluminium window frames are about the best you can get for your windows in a place like Dubai where it’s hot all year around.
