Why aluminium is a sustainable material

Recyclable and sustainable aluminium

When something made with aluminium is scrapped or tore down, a high percentage of the existing aluminium can be reused later on for something else, without losing any of the physical properties that were present in the original or primary aluminium. The recycling process of aluminium also uses only 5% of the energy it takes for the creation of primary/original aluminium. It’s these properties of aluminium that make it one of the world’s most sustainable building materials.

More reasons to choose aluminium

Beyond the excellent sustainability of aluminium, it’s also widely regarded for its high strength whilst still being a lightweight material. Aluminium is also a very formable material, able to be bent and shaped to fit whatever criteria is needed for a product. Aluminium’s resistance to corrosion and incredibly long lifespan also means it’s around for the long haul and won’t need replacing anytime soon. When it comes to bifold doors and sliding doors, you can’t go wrong with aluminium.
