Aluminium in Construction – The perfect material

A building is rarely constructed, completed or refurbished without the use of aluminium these days, 20% of the world’s aluminium is used in the construction industry. The main reason for this is, because the physical properties of this metal make it the perfect low maintenance material for buildings.

Aluminium in Construction

Aluminium is a light weigh material, which means that the load on the bearing of any structure us less, and the strength makes it suitable for a variety of solutions. Its resistance to corrosion gives it the advantage of perfect use within regions exposed to severe weather. A vital reason for the use of aluminium is because its fluidity gives freedom to architects and designers.

Aluminium is becoming increasingly used in the construction industry. It is used to produce ceilings and walls, window frames, blinds, doors, stairs, roof covers, wall panel’s partitions, HVAC systems and to construct houses and shopping centres, stadiums and bridges.

Each year, millions of aluminium frames and doors are installed in new and old buildings. Durable, insulating, with a low compression and expansion ratio, they meet all modern requirements. Advanced technologies mean that solar batteries can be mounted into the frames, and it is expected that this energy-saving method will become popular in the future.

However, the application of aluminium in the construction industry not only opens opportunities for the future, but also helps to save the past. In recent years, aluminium has been increasingly applied as a main material in the restoration and reconstruction of historical buildings.
