Are aluminium windows eco-friendly?

Are you an eco-conscious homeowner looking for windows in Sussex or the surrounding areas? Many people don’t consider aluminium to be an environmentally friendly option like timber. At Sussex Glazing, we’ve written this blog to help you make an informed decision when choosing your next windows.

How are aluminium windows eco-friendly?


Aluminium is one of the most sustainable materials as it can be recycled almost infinitely, often without losing its quality. Once aluminium windows reach the end of their long lifespan, they can be recycled. By turning them into other products, it stops these windows ending up in a landfill site. This makes them the perfect material for eco-friendly windows.

Energy efficiency

At Sussex Glazing, our aluminium windows are highly energy efficient. These windows are made with the latest thermal barrier and advanced profile technologies, which insulate your home, keeping the warm air in and the cool air out. This can lower your energy consumption and reduce your energy bills.

Durability of aluminium windows

Unlike other materials, aluminium is corrosion resistant, meaning it does not rot or warp, and instead is very strong and long lasting. They require little maintenance and won’t need replacing as frequently as other materials. At Sussex Glazing, our aluminium windows are sprayed with a marine grade powder coat as standard, which offers a long-lasting finish no matter where your windows are installed. This will further increase the life expectancy of aluminium windows, reducing their impact on the environment.

Improved indoor air quality

Aluminium windows have proven to be good for the air quality in your home, as they don’t emit harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) or formaldehyde, which can be found in other materials such as timber and uPVC. By installing our aluminium windows, you can help make the environment in your home healthier.
