Aluminium sliding windows are ideal for homes and offices. They are durable, cost competitive, lightweight and can withstand the harsh tropical climate. When paired with appropriate glass, it also improves the energy efficiency of your building. Aluminium is also the architectural material of choice for its aesthetics and design flexibility.
Aluminium Sliding Windows Designs
Aluminium sliding windows designs come in a variety of designs to suit your needs. You can choose from a single sliding panel or double glazed units for either side of your door or window. The type of glazing used will depend on how much privacy you want from outside noise and light. For example, double glazed aluminium sliding windows offer better soundproofing properties than single glazed units. Some aluminium doors feature a combination of both single and double glazing for added insulation against noise pollution and heat loss during winter months.
Design Options for Aluminium Sliding Doors
Aluminium sliding doors are available in many styles such as traditional timber framed designs with batten infill panels or modern styles that feature glass infill panels with integrated handles or hardware fittings to complement your existing interior décor themes
1. Less Frames, Better Views
In terms of design, there are many options to choose from. Sliding windows are available as single- or double-hung versions, as well as awning or hopper styles. Sliding doors can be either single or double-hung with fixed panels or operable panels.
Sliding windows provide an easy way to bring more light into the home and give access to your balcony or patio. They allow you to maximize your view in any direction and can be fitted with any type of glass for maximum light transmission. This makes them ideal for areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms where natural light is preferred over artificial lighting.
2. Lightweight and Resistant to Corrosion
Aluminium is an excellent choice for window frames. It combines strength and durability with light weight, making it ideal for sliding windows and other types of glazed doors.
Aluminium is used extensively in the building industry as a component material because of its versatility and ease of use. The specific weight of aluminium is just 2.7 g/cm3, about a third of steel, making it one of the lightest industrial metals available and ideal for window and door frames.
3. Performance under high wind conditions
Sliding windows are the most common type of window on the market. They are often used in bathrooms and kitchens, as well as for large patio doors.
Sliding windows can be found in many different styles and designs, giving them a wide range of uses. They come in wood, aluminium or vinyl frames and have either single or double sliding panels.
Sliding windows also have one lesser known advantage. With sliding windows, you can leave a small opening for fresh air and not have to worry about strong winds and rain blowing your window completely open.

The beauty of aluminium sliding windows is that they can be customised to suit your needs. Whether you prefer a modern window design or traditional look, choose from a wide range of colours and finishes to match your home’s style.
Aluminium sliding windows can be easily customised to a wide range of colours and finishes, such as powder coating or anodised finishes. You can even have an aluminium window in wood-grain finish to simulate a natural look!

5. Easy to Maintain
Maintaining and cleaning aluminium sliding windows is much easier and safer than with outward-opening casement windows. With the right cleaning equipment, most parts of the window glass exterior can be accessed without having a risk of a dangerous fall.
Aluminium sliding windows and the glass should never be scrubbed with abrasive materials or metal brushes, as this can damage their finish. To avoid accidental damage and scratches, the cloth used for glass should also not be used for cleaning other furnishings.
