Aluminium and environment

Our products have a long life and are often used in exposed environments and locations with harsh weather conditions. High-quality frames that are strong, stable and require minimal maintenance give your home simplicity and comfort that will last for generations.

Transparency and comfort
Generous glazing units and doors in glass and aluminium let valuable natural light flood into your home. Products that combine quality and high performance give you comfort and convenience.

Developed for the Nordic climate
Our products are developed to cope with the harsh Nordic climate and meet strict demands for energy efficiency and comfort. Doors, windows and glazing units are developed in close cooperation with architects and fabricators to ensure quality, performance, reliability, and design. High quality and precision make our products reliable and easy to use.

Aluminium is strong and light, which means that profiles can be made slimmer than the corresponding timber or PVC frames. Aluminium is strong, durable and corrosion resistant, and its natural properties mean minimal maintenance.

This is why our products are often used in exposed environments and locations with harsh weather conditions. One of the largest selections of finishes in the Nordic market gives you a massive range of choice.

Why aluminium?
Products made from aluminium have a long life, which reduces environmental impact. 75% of all the aluminium ever produced since the 1880s is still in use today. Aluminium is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust.

The use of aluminium contributes to sustainable building, since it permits structures that combine high energy performance, safety and comfort.In principle, aluminium can be recycled endlessly and made into new products without any loss of quality. Only a few per cent is lost during the remelting process. Around 50% of Sapa’s total production is based on recycled aluminium.
