A Window On Design FreedomJuly 3, 2022
Window pods, sometimes known as window surrounds, are the perfect addition to a number of different types of buildings, particularly in the renovation and new build sector. From seaside buildings such as Turnstone Mews, to housing developments such as Riverside Bath, window pods are a stunning feature on a building’s façade so it is no surprise that our architects and designers love them.
On top of that, their looks aren’t their only benefits. There are a number of extra factors that make ARP’s window pods so great:
Durability: it is no secret that aluminium is incredibly durable. At ARP we have long been advocates for that. But, for window pods especially, the corrosive-resistant qualities of aluminium mean that they can withstand a lot of the different weather conditions thrown at them, so you can be sure of the fact that your pods will be made to last.
Fire-safety: Important for the integrity of the property, window pods are considered fire-safe. Aluminium is a non-combustible material and fire resistant so not only are your pods built to last against wind and rain, but they will also withstand other elements too.
Light weight: Being around a third of the weight of steel, aluminium is the ideal material to use on aspects such as window pods. Allied an impressive strength to weight ratio, the 3mm aluminium sheet used is incredibly strong with little distortion, so you can be sure of a secure and perfect fit every time.
Bespoke design and finish: Here at ARP, we know that each project will have its own needs and requirements. That’s why we don’t just supply window pods, we manufacture them at our Leicester plant. This allows you much more flexibility when choosing the right pods for your project. Just like our standard rainwater products, we offer a range of different finishes and an endless number of colours to choose from, so you can be sure your window pods will fit the aesthetic of your building perfectly and match other architectural features flawlessly.
