  • Dress to Impress – Wrap it up with Aluminium

    When it comes to first impressions, sometimes only the best will do and this has never been so truer a fact than the impact that glazing makes on any building, residential or commercial.

    Be it simply to be viewed lovingly from the quiet of your own terrace to standing open mouthed, taking in layer upon layer, floor upon floor of perfectly crafted glazing on a busy street or business park, impact is impact.

    There are of course various glazing options available, and these continue to evolve covering the complete budgetary, design and planning spectrum, but for true impression aluminium is still the clear winner, enabling bespoke enterprises of all guises to become glimmering realities without compromising on security or heat efficiency, no matter the magnitude of the project.

    By definition, aluminium is unique in its properties, it remains the most plentiful metal from within the earth’s crust. It is found in the form of aluminium oxide in an ore called bauxite. Alumina and bauxite are the two main raw materials in the aluminium making process and aluminium is obtained by the electrolysis of alumina which extracts pure aluminium metal from alumina.

    Providing design versatility, and with its thermal capacity aluminium provides unsurpassed insulation as well as style and a high-end finish to any project. In the current climate it is also virtuous in that it is also recyclable – in fact it is one of the highest recyclable products throughout the entire world to date.

  • Insider Trading

    C & A Window Systems LtdIt is not uncommon for some companies, certainly smaller contractors with less buying power to utilize larger suppliers or manufacturers to source the Windows, Doors and even Bi-fold Doors required for the projects they are undertaking. It is also completely normal for some projects to be undertaken by one single contractor, and being able to confirm the procurement of the materials required under one umbrella is paramount.

    Quality, service and cost are all factors to take into account, so ensuring that you, as a contractor, are being supplied by the best in the industry is vital for business. One such trusted company is C&A Windows. Their quality and service to the trade is unsurpassed, with experts overseeing not only the manufacturer, but the delivery, be it for commercial or domestic projects.

  • U-Value and thermal performance

    [et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ admin_label=”section” _builder_version=”3.22″][et_pb_row admin_label=”row” _builder_version=”3.25″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”|||” custom_padding__hover=”|||”][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” _builder_version=”4.3.2″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” hover_enabled=”0″]

    The energy performance of Aluminium windows and doors is a critical factor which determines the decision-making of customers, as this value greatly impacts their energy bills. 

    The U-Value is the level of heat loss escaped from a glass substance or surface. In our case that is Doors, Windows, Roof Lanterns etc.

    This heat loss, or thermal performance, is expressed with the type W/m2 . K., where Watts is the amount of energy conducted per square metre (the area of the substance, i.e. window), multiplied by the temperature difference on either side of the substance (window), which is measured in Kelvin–same structure as Celsius.

    In short:

    • the lower the U-value, the better the thermal performance in terms of insulation.
    • the higher the U-value of windows, the higher the energy conductivity through them. 

    Simple U-value calculation

    A typical ‘C’ rate window measures 1.2m x 1.2m. That makes 1.44 m2, and its U-value is 1.6W/m2.K. 

    This further means that this window conducts 1.6 W of energy per m2 for every degree (K) difference in temperature from one side to the other. 

    Example: if it is 20 ºC inside the room and -1ºC outside, there is a 21ºC temperature difference. 

    The energy equation then is: 

    1.6 (U-value of window) x 1.44 m2 (area of window) x 21 (difference in temperature) = (1.6 x 1.44) x 21 = 48W of potential energy loss.

    Now, if an ‘A’ rate window comes with an U-value of 1.4W/m2.K, the new equation works out like this:

    (1.4 x 1.44) x 21 = 42W of potential energy loss.

    If we now increase the dimensions again, and the window comes with an U-value of 2.0W/m2.K (typical old windows with hard coat sealed units), this goes = (2.0 x 1.44) x 21 = 60.48W of potential energy loss.

    At C&A Window Systems Ltd we supply high-quality and highly-thermal Aluminium solutions for our customers and pride ourselves in the energy efficiency of them.

  • The Next Generation of Aluminium Doors and Windows

    Our trusted partner, Reynaers Aluminium Ltd, that has supplied us for years with outstanding-quality aluminium products. Together we created the next-generation series of window systems and doors.

    Furthermore, MasterLine 8 combines the latest-technology. Subsequently to produce windows with ultimate thermal insulation, air-and-water tightness and daylight performance. They are produced with high speed, and mirror the current trend towards maximising daylight.

    Additionally, the series can also be integrated with the existing CP130 and CP155 sliding door range and the CW50 curtain walling. They all come as inward and outward opening glass-and-panel, highly-insulated and robust flush doors 

    Having previously stated, MasterLine 8 doors are extremely durable and are accompanied with a Passive Housing certificate–the world’s leading standard in energy efficiency, requiring very little energy to achieve comfortable temperature all year around. Consequently, MasterLine doors feature air tightness and excellent thermal performance, along with a class-3 burglar resistance and weight up to 250kg. 

    The Future Is Here

    Standard, high-Insulation and high-insulation+ are the three industry-leading insulation layers from which customers can choose, which retain and reflect heat. These features bring window U-values down to 0.64W/m2K. Besides, customers can choose from five design variations: functional, renaissance, deco, hidden vent and balcony boor. 

    Their outstanding sealing properties (water tightness of 900Pa and reduced air loss at 600Pa air pressure), make them ideal for British weather’s elements. 

    The process of manufacturing aluminium doors and windows is complicated, and highly technical. The public rarely takes notice of what is happening behind the scenes and sophisticated methods and machinery of aluminium manufacturers

    To create an aluminium miracle, the aluminium goes through several processes, and MasterLine 8 is the latest form of advanced aluminium products supplied by Reanaer Ltd.

    At C&A Window Systems Ltd we partner with Reynaers to offer our customers top-notch products that stand the test of time. Back-up and supported by industry giants, our clientele always enjoys supreme quality and services.
