People who are used to dealing in uPVC find aluminium pricing impossible to understand. Unlike plastic products, aluminium extruders stock thousands of profiles. They have to do this in order to cope with requirements both structural and aesthetic from commercial curtain walling to a little rural cottage. Not only is the range of frame styles enormous, but the colours and finishes on offer run to hundreds.
Then we have the material itself. Unlike uPVC, aluminium has a high scrap (waste) value. The amount of waste will vary depending on several factors, including the size of the order. We batch and optimise orders carefully to minimise waste and ensure that its contribution to product cost is as low as possible.
