Aluminum windows are widely used in the current market. Aluminum windows can be divided into casement type, split type, push-pull type and top-hung type according to the different opening methods and the types of aluminum windows are different. The types of aluminum windows are different and they have both pros and cons.

Casement aluminum windows

The biggest advantages of casement aluminum windows are good ventilation and daylighting rate. Due to the large area, the monolithic glass will make it sound insulation, heat preservation and sealing better than other types of aluminum doors and windows. Aluminum casement windows are also divided into two types: open type and open type. The open type saves space and the open type is more secure.


Push-pull aluminum windows

The advantages of push-pull aluminum windows are simple, beautiful, space-saving, and high daylighting rate. Because they are opened in the same plane, it is also more convenient to install screens. Push-pull aluminum windows are currently more used, especially in residential buildings, while push-pull aluminum alloy doors are more commonly used in kitchens, bedrooms, and study rooms.

Top hanging aluminum windows

The advantages of top-hung aluminum windows are to ensure ventilation while ensuring indoor safety. The top-hung aluminum windows usually have hinges and window frames to fix them, so that they are partially suspended in the air when opened, and can only open about 10 cm Gap is usually more common in the kitchen or bathroom.

In fact, no matter which type of aluminum window has its two sides, it needs to be selected according to the actual situation, and different brands and different quality aluminum windows will have large differences in materials and processes. Next, we will make a small comparison of different quality aluminum alloy doors and windows.

High-quality aluminum window profiles will be made of aluminum, strontium, copper, magnesium, manganese and other alloys, with a thickness of more than 1 mm, which will be superior to ordinary aluminum alloy doors and windows in toughness and service life, such as Hennessy Brands that focus on door and window design, technology research and development, and production will use 6061-T6 aerospace standard profiles and use high-quality materials such as primary aluminum, silicon, magnesium, and iron. The internal components are dense and uniform, and the mechanical properties are stable. At the same time, the surface of the material can be bright and smooth without obvious oxide layers.


Low-quality aluminum and windows use ordinary 6061 alloy profiles, and this type of materials are mostly recycled aluminum for reuse, which not only has poor performance in various aspects, but also can be seen from the surface of rough workmanship and even trachoma cracks.


With the development of technology and the diversification of needs, the types of aluminum windows are also increasing, but the most important thing is to choose the right type and size of windows according to their own conditions. Finally, it is recommended to choose some big brands when buying doors and windows and make the most correct and suitable choice with the assistance of professionals.
