Aluminium windows, key strategic elements in the commitment to energy efficiency.

The construction industry has become one of the strategic sectors to be taken into consideration due to its capacity to generate healthier and more sustainable environments. 

It is common knowledge, for example, that windows are an enormously important factor in obtaining energy efficient buildings.

Aluminium, a key material

Aluminium windows are not only more sustainable as these allow for energy savings in the home, but likewise as aluminium is an infinitely recyclable material, and does not lose its properties in the process.

Therefore, replacing windows in ageing buildings is a climate-friendly measure which generates long-term energy savings. 

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, envisaged this when in its day published the “Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan”, a  plan which has been in place for more than a year now.

The Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan

The “Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan” was drawn up by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation within the context of the recovery process from the aftermath of the COVID-19 effects. 

This plan contemplated that, indeed, the support to the window replacement market, has the capacity to generate long-term energy savings, reducing CO2 emissions and paving the way towards climate neutrality. At the same time, it is an effective way to fostering building renovation and attain energy and climate plans in line with EU commitments. 

Which is why aluminium becomes a strategic ally in the commitment to energy efficiency. 

Moreover, according to the Spanish Aluminium and Surface Treatments Association, the use of aluminium in new and refurbished buildings can make a decisive contribution to energy renovation and foster a new efficient and sustainable economy.

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable.

The recovery rate of aluminium products in the construction industry is by default 95%. Furthermore, profile offcuts and aluminium chips generated during window assembly are sent to recycling centres for the production of new raw material. 

Seventy percent (70%) of the aluminium manufactured by mankind is still in use and its manufacture and recycling does not generate waste. 

The quality of aluminium is unsurpassed; it is unique in combining lightweightness, strength, durability, insulation and recyclability.
