Energy efficiency is immediately reflected in energy — and therefore, economic — savings, which is achieved by rationally selecting the elements that must be installed in a building without disrupting the comfort standard demanded by the people occupying them. In addition, this efficiency has a noted environmental impact, since the rational use of constructive elements makes it possible to attain the aforementioned comfort without resorting to energy sources which, ultimately, entail the consumption of natural resources.
The demand for increasingly efficient buildings in terms of energy requires heavy investment in research and technological development. Alugom Group works so that each of its systems is effectively sustainable and uses the best available technology and human workforce available to get its carpentry alu-series to actively contribute to complying with the Technical Building Code and improved energy certification of buildings.
Alugom Group’s most important proposal for the development of the Passivhaus (Passive House) is the ALG series which is taking shape as — thanks to its outstanding features — the standard of energy efficiency in the path laid out by the European Union to drastically reduce the consumption of energy and CO2 emissions in the building industry from 2018 for public buildings and 2020 for new buildings.
For the features sought with each aluminium system to be effective and remain unchanged, it is necessary to apply some manufacturing guidelines that prevent undesired deviations. ALUGOM GROUP has developed some detailed manufacturing manual that allow aluminium joiners to organise the manufacturing process of their systems so that they work exactly for the purpose they were designed.
Condensation, noise outside, heat loss, air currents: the poor choice of enclosure system encourages these threats to appear once the property when there is no longer a solution.
The location of the property, the orientation of the rooms and the configuration of the facades determine the system most recommendable to avoid the aforementioned problems. After that come more personal choices — aesthetic, financial and feature preferences — will determine which system fits both user and building.
Alugom Group provides a wide range of systems to offer the optimal solution needed by each building, from simple, lightweight series for easy, slow-changing situations to high-performance series suitable for most hostile environments, safeguarding the comfort of building users but without isolating them from the surrounding environment.
Now it is users who decide the aesthetics of the environment they wish to live in. In addition, the architects’ touch appears increasingly in all the elements making up the building, including the enclosures. Functional design is melding with the new trends, which are evolving at high speed.
Alugom Group has a windows and enclosure catalogue that meets these contemporary aesthetic needs. In it, clients and architects can find construction designs that are reliable and robust while at the same time visually light and in tune with today’s aesthetic tastes.
This is achieved because our designs are constantly changing and are developed by our technical department to be modulated depending on geographical trends and the taste of the end client.
Alugom Group systems allow for incorporating security components that are additional to the enclosure structure itself. These convert doors and windows in effective barriers, contributing to the invulnerability of the buildings and making the placement of other physical elements unnecessary.
