Features of wood-aluminium windows and balconies
The wood-aluminium joinery is a system at the highest technical level. The combination of two materials saves energy and also ensures safety. On the external side, the aluminium coating provides protection against the influence of atmospheric conditions. On the inside, however, the warm, living wood provides protection against heat loss. Currently manufactured wooden windows are not only characterised by very good technical parameters, but also exceptional durability. The use of this material helps to create a pleasant, homely atmosphere. Aluminium, on the other hand, is maintenance-free, i.e. it requires no maintenance. In addition, it is distinguished by its stability and lightness. Wood-aluminium joinery is the perfect solution for wood lovers who want to avoid the necessary maintenance.
Wood-aluminium joinery variants
Wood-aluminium windows and balcony doors from the MS Windows and Doors offer are available in three product lines – Modern, Classic and Art. The features of the various options are shown in the graphics below.
The difference between the available options is the appearance of the glazing rim. The extensive assortment makes it possible to achieve a construction which matches both the facade of the building and the preferred style of interior design.
Thicknesses of frames and sashes
In the case of wood-aluminium windows and balcony doors, two thicknesses of sashes and frames are available – 68 and 80 mm. Both variants appear in each of the product lines presented above. The graphic below shows a section of the joinery from the Modern line. The profile shown is 80 mm thick.
Types of aluminium cladding and wooden profiles
Modern wooden joinery systems with aluminium cladding are a solution that perfectly fits in with the trends of modern architecture. These products are characterised above all by original design, exceptional durability and increased resistance to adverse weather conditions.
The extensive range of aluminium profiles allows to match the style of windows and doors to any project, from modern, cubist forms to industrial buildings. The use of cladding from renowned companies – Aluron and Gutmann – makes it possible for the MS Windows and Doors offer to create a product adjusted to each type of room. It is worth noting that the construction will meet not only aesthetic expectations but also rigorous technical requirements.
The profile with aluminium cladding is available in two options which allows all customers’ aesthetic preferences to be met. The MS Windows and Doors assortment includes a full range of standard option with a frame gasket. The most popular profiles are also available without an additional gasket. The pictures below show the 80 mm profile with the Classic system cladding in two variants – with and without a gasket.
Thanks to the variety of aluminium cladding and two profile thicknesses, it is possible to install glazed units with a thickness of up to 60 mm. This results in a much better thermal performance of the structure.
|Profile thickness||Cladding||Max. glazed unit thickness|
|68 mm||Integral, Quadrat FB (Aluron)|
Contour FB, Contour Integral FB (Gutmann)
|68 mm||Other cladding||44 mm|
|80 mm||Integral, Quadrat FB (Aluron)|

Standard equipment of wood-aluminium windows
