Aluminium for industrial and prefabricated buildings
Aluminium is by far the youngest among the industrial materials and the third most abundant element after oxygen and silicon. Remarkably soft and light, it is extracted from bauxite, which makes up for roughly 8% of the Earth’s crust. Aluminium oxidises rapidly when in contact with the air, creating a superficial protection that makes it resistant to water and certain chemical substances. This characteristic makes it the most widely used metal in the transport and building industries. Thanks to its excellent reflecting power, it diffuses and reflects light which helps to reduce light dispersion from the light source and favours energy saving.
Each aluminium system is built using tested components, which guarantees unique windows and doors in terms of quality and safety. Aluminium combines lightness and construction flexibility, resistance and solidity, and can adapt to any shape and colour – all valuable properties in any architectural context.
Aluminium has a Class A1 (Class 0) fire rating. This means that this metal does not generate any hazardous emissions and cannot propagate a fire.
