In the light of the threat of global warming and climate change, sustainability is the mantra the construction industry needs to adapt as the key to their future success. While every product used in buildings should reflect thoughtful integrity and a contemporary sensibility, at the same time the companies should strive to create products that are loved today and will last forever. The future is for sustainable and environment friendly construction.
All of our building systems use aluminium as their core material, which offers an inherent strength necessary for building projects. Aluminium is known for being lightweight, durable, and low maintenance, while also aiding the high performance of our systems due to its immunity to UV, low conductivity, and fire resistance.
Up to 90% of all aluminium used in construction is recycled, using 95% less energy to manufacture than its primary production - with no deterioration in quality. This makes it one of the most sustainable construction materials available, reducing carbon emissions and contributing to the lifecycle costing of a building.
Through responsible sourcing and intelligent design we have ensured that AluK products meet and exceed our partners' environmental needs.
Aluminium does not age like other organic materials and needs no protection from ultra-violet light. Its overall life-cycle is more environmentally friendly due to the minimum energy required in maintenance and the well-established, proven design life of aluminium assures that it will provide a long term solution year on year with the guarantee of 100% recyclability at the end of a building's life.
A few facts about aluminium:
- Over three quarters of aluminium produced is still in use today.
- 90% of the aluminium used in the construction industry is recycled.
- Recycling aluminium requires 95% less energy than primary production.
