Well-designed and high quality doors and windows are important to ensure your home is safe, comfortable and stylish at the same time. These two essential elements also play a significant role in bringing natural light, air and views from the outdoors while offering you privacy and security.
To help you make better window and door choices, Malaysia’s leading aluminum door and window manufacturer, Window Elements highlights some of the key points that you should take into consideration.
#1 ENSURING A SECURE HOME
One of the main functions of your windows and doors is to keep your home safe and sound from intruders, bad weather, and in some cases – even mosquitoes! While they keep unwanted elements out and offer you privacy, they should also allow views and natural air and light into the home at the same time.
When it comes to home security, the ArxTech Swing Door System from Window Elements comes highly recommended. At first glance, these aluminium doors are ultra-stylish, which means they blend perfectly into modern homes. But there’s more to these doors than meet the eye. Designed as a security mesh door to replace bulky traditional steel bar doors, this system ensures optimum security by using a multi-point locking system which secures both the top and bottom of the door panel.
For windows, Windows Element advises homeowners that it is always ideal to get systems that are specially designed to improve natural ventilation, especially for Malaysian weather. For instance, the Breezway Altair Louvres allow fresh air to permeate homes so that the indoor temperature can be naturally reduced and thus decreasing the need for air-conditioning systems. When closed, Altair Louvres seal tight to provide superior wind and water performance and offer a range of glazing options to suit the Asian climate.
#2 WINDOWS AND DOORS THAT LAST
It’s a pain when you have to replace your doors or windows every few years because of wear and tear. While it is not a major renovation, it is still a tedious project that takes up time, money and effort. It is this reason that every homeowner should invest in high quality windows and doors that are durable and hardy against our hot and humid weather.
The ArxTech Casement Window from Window Elements proves to be one of the most flexible yet sturdiest systems in their collection. A security mesh system which serves to replace traditional grille bars and mosquito netting, these casement windows are also built with high performance features. Through meticulous research and testing, ArxTech offers a window system with high levels of thermal performance and a multi-point interlocking system that is able to withstand high levels of daily use and abuse (i.e. pushing and pulling forces).
When you are looking for a quality door, make sure that it is made from high quality materials. The Optima 88 Folding Door from Window Elements is made from premium grade aluminium which provides strength, security, durability, user-friendly functionality and minimal maintenance. As they are made from weather-friendly materials, these folding doors are suitable as an exterior door that links to outside patio, balcony, garden or swimming pool deck.
#3 COMFORT AND EASE
There’s nothing more annoying than constantly having to use force to open tight windows or dealing with doors that won’t close properly.
Whether you want them closed, semi opened or fully opened, a good example of doors built to work efficiently is the Optima 68 Sliding Door from Window Elements. This door gives you that graceful and smooth motion, so you can open and close with great ease and comfort. No more pushing and pulling with frustration or awful screeching sounds just to get in and out.
#4 VERSATILE VARIETY
More than just openings on buildings, windows and doors also contribute to the beauty and style of your home. As each home has its own design characteristics, it’s essential to have different window and door options that fit different layouts to select from. Window Elements offer customers a wide range to choose from and if you are spoilt for choice, their experienced consultants can help you with selecting the best windows and doors solution for specific space requirements.
For example, if you happen to like a more minimalist-styled look, the brand recommends their Optima 29 Casement Window which features a sleek appeareance and comes with an array of styles, shapes and sizes to fit different specifications. There are also different glass, powder coated colour or wood grain finishes to match your preferred interior style.
#5 EASY TO MAINTAIN
Window Elements also points out that it is best to opt for windows that are easy to maintain. Blinds, for example are known to be really difficult to clean.
However, the brand’s WinBlind collection has a air tight enclosure which means you will no longer need to dust and clean your blinds so often as this nifty feature keeps dust at bay.
