Setting new standards of modern construction
With its extraordinary properties, aluminium is increasingly asserting itself also in construction. What sets aluminium apart from other materials is mainly its resistance and insensitivity to external influences. Since aluminium is corrosion resistant it requires practically no maintenance, thus extending the service life of buildings and long-term costs of their renovation.
Architects have already been applying extruded and rolled products for several years. Aluminium allows them to create smooth and soft lines, precise edges and diverse surfaces on all types of facilities. At the same time, aluminium provides an excellent solution for roof coverings, having a contemporary and aesthetic appearance, extremely durable and require almost no maintenance due to its corrosion-resistant properties. Aluminium is also becoming increasingly widespread in the manufacturing of window frames, gutters, façades, Venetian blinds and other builders’ joinery.
Use of aluminium

Empire State Building
An urban icon of the city of New York, the Empire state Building was the first public building for the construction of which anodised aluminium was used. Anodising is an electrochemical process where a thicker oxide layer is created on aluminium, which not only protects, but also acquires various colour shades by adding certain colour hues.
The smart aluminium façade system can reduce energy consumption by 50%.
