EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ALUMINIUM IN CONSTRUCTION

HOW ALUMINIUM IS MADE

Aluminium is the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust. It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth's solid surface.  The highest concentration of aluminium oxide is found in ore bauxiet.

U-VALUE AND K-VALUE

To indicate to what extent a material is thermally insulating, the term thermal transmittance or U-value is used in the construction industry. The lower the U-value, the higher the heat resistance of a material, meaning the better the insulation.
 

Thermal Insulation

Reynaers aluminium systems are designed to meet different levels of thermal insulation. This insulation level is called the U-value. The lower this U-value is, the higher the insulation.

10 YEAR SYSTEM GUARANTEE

At each stage of the production process our quality control department carries out very stringent checks, which enable us to guarantee that our systems satisfy country and product specific technical approvals and standards. 

QUALANOD

All our anodising suppliers bear the European Qualanod quality label and consequently meet specific requirements with respect to seals, service life, UV-resistance,

QUALICOAT

All our lacquering partners bear the European Qualicoat quality label, which implies that they meet specific requirements with respect to seals, service life

CE MARKING

This European quality label ensures the high quality of our materials and their compliance with European legislation. Furthermore, it guarantees that the fabricator assembles the systems, according to the processing requirements of Reynaers Aluminium.

THE ISO 9001 QUALITY LABEL

The quality of the complete organization at Reynaers Aluminium is guaranteed by the ISO 9001 certificate. To acquire and retain this certificate, several departments at Reynaers are inspected by BSI on an annual basis.
 

FAIRLY LIGHT, YET STRONG AND DURABLE

Despite their light weight, aluminium windows and doors are of very high quality. Their extreme stability and resistance against deformation makes Reynaers systems meet the highest European standards in burglar resistance, or even bullet resistance.

ADVANTAGES OF BUILDING WITH A QUALITY LABEL

Quality labels are often achieved by companies to showcase the superior quality of their products or services. Building with a quality label assures the product’s compliance with international regulations and standards.

BREEAM

BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) is a widely used environmental assessment method for buildings, founded in the UK.

BIPV

Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) are multifunctional systems that generate electricity through photovoltaics while serving as part of the construction.
