Exceptional Lifecycle: Aluminum is a fantastic building product for those concerned about sustainability. It is naturally plentiful and perpetually surviving (recyclability). Moreover, aluminum rates very high in Life Cycle Assessment and leaves a small ecological footprint.
Recyclable: Manufacturing produces waste destined for the world’s landfills. In order to combat this inefficient discarding of materials, 100% of our aluminum remnants are collected and melted down to make new windows and doors. This greatly reduces energy input because aluminum production from scrap uses 95% less energy and limits the waste stream.
Lasting Decades Longer: All windows and doors eventually must be replaced BUT aluminum windows and doors last decades longer than wood and vinyl. Consider the impact on the world’s landfills with all the wood and vinyl waste. Additionally, imagine the wasted energy on redundant manufacturing of short-lived wood and vinyl windows and doors.
Factory Coatings: We offer two types of finishes on our aluminum windows and doors: paint and anodizing. Both processes result in environmentally safe products that do not require refinishing. Because Fleetwood products are factory finished for life, you need only keep them clean. Imagine the reduction of VOCs if everyone chose aluminum over products requiring refinishing. See the inside cover of our brochure for more information regarding painting and anodizing.
