Aluminum Fenestration for Use in Building Envelopes

Publisher: Azon USA Inc.
The manufacturers of fenestration products including windows and doors for use in a building envelope have a variety of many materials to choose from. This paper provides an industry overview, and examines the use of aluminum with a structural thermal barrier as the material of choice for fenestration worldwide. It also presents fundamental facts about aluminum for commercial and residential applications, and evaluates the structural longevity and design flexibility of such products. Data supporting the ability to meet energy codes for the architectural building industry is provided. Comparison studies are also presented on various types of systems that can be used for insulating aluminum windows and doors, while graphs representing deflection under load, life cycle of aluminum, thermograph, thermal expansion, and modulus of elasticity are also presented.
