What is window joinery?

Window joinery is, to put simply, window framing. Window frames should be both functional and aesthetic. Their main task is to keep the temperature level inside rooms. The second function is protection against burglary. An additional advantage is the possibility of choosing the window joinery look. These days, the most popular colours are white and different shades of brown.

Why aluminium?

First of all, aluminium is durable. Thanks to that, you can feel safer to some degree than in the case of, e.g., wooden windows. Aluminium windows are resistant to various kinds of deformations, being problematic for burglars, as the material is hard to bend or damage in any other way. However, during the production process window frames retain their plasticity and can be adjusted to various window profiles. What is more, usually the framings are narrow. This measure aims to provide more light to the interior.
