Aluminium previously had a bad reputation for lacking energy efficiency. Our range of Aluk products are highly energy efficient and manufactured to a superior standard. We know that energy efficiency is a key priority for customers, especially when the cost of living is so high.
At Emplas, we started manufacturing the AluK F82 Luminia aluminium bifolding door, which we believe to be one of the most energy efficient solutions in our range. The F82 achieves market-leading U-values for bifold doors, with U-values as low as 1.4 W/m2K with double glazed units and 0.9 W/m2K for triple glazed units.
While aluminium has a historically bad reputation, the products we offer deliver energy efficiency and long-lasting performance. Aluk were actually the first company to ever gain an A-rated aluminium double glazed window system in the market!
The larger spans and individual leaf width of up to 1200mm also maximises the area of glazing, heavy-duty rollers deliver an effortlessly smooth motion and individual sash weights of up to 150kg. Despite having a large expansive of glazing which gives a wall of glass effect, the energy efficiency of the design is not compromised.
Home Energy Performance Certificates have ensured home energy efficiency more transparent. Government research has showcased that those with the least efficient building could pay three times as much on energy costs as those with the most thermally efficient properties. This could be as much as £6,000 over three years.
AluK have been at the forefront of aluminium double glazing, helping them earn an enviable reputation with both fabricators and installers. We are sure you and your customers will love the design, performance and energy efficiency of our range of products.
We use this brand because they have leading in-house test facilities and design their products to achieve the highest possible test results. They will assess the wind resistance, air permeability and watertightness of their products, keeping any space warm, dry and draught-free.
Aluk double glazing system includes water and acoustic barriers and uses the most innovative manufacturing techniques to deliver long-term peace of mind. They also have integrated drainage paths that allow water to pass through the system. This, combined with the high quality air seals and barriers, ensures they can tackle the everchanging British climate with ease.
The aluminium window systems we offer are rated for their energy efficiency using the A-G scale. This common system will help you and your customers decide which windows to choose based on whether you are working on renovating or existing property.
This Aluk system is not just energy efficient, it will also deliver a superior level of security.

These Aluk systems have also certified by PAS 24, Secured by Design and Q-mark accredited.
Despite this leading level of performance, this design does not compromise on the aesthetics with slim, symmetrical sightlines on the frame, cill and jamb of only 97mm and 122mm on the door meeting. This creates a clean and modern picture-frame effect that is appealing to a wide range of customers.
Aluk, is not just known for their energy efficient products, they also have a patented ‘T’ handle. This architectural feature sits completely flush within the frame and needs just one simple push out to operate. This offers uninterrupted sightlines and leads to a brighter, more welcoming space.
