Aluminium vs Stainless Steel Gate


















 As the population increase in Singapore, security can become a major challenge in homes. Therefore, gates play a vital role in ensuring safety in our homes and business premises. Gates are designed from a variety of materials such stainless steel and aluminum. In this article, we are going to make a comparison of some aspects between Aluminum vs Stainless steel gates. 


Rust

Aluminum 
When it comes to rust, aluminum is not affected. Therefore, exposure to moisture is not an issue to aluminum gates. In places where a gate is exposed to elements such as moisture and oxygen, you will have no need to worry about rusting. The ability of aluminum to resist makes it more durable than stainless steel gate.

Stainless steel
When exposed to oxygen and water, steel will rust. If you are near the coast, where there is the presence of salt, the iron will rust quickly. Usually, the rusting of iron is prevents through galvanization. However, this often fails at holes, joints, and seams where the coating has been pierced. In most cases, the moisture and oxygen are trapped inside, and the gate will rust from inside. In this case, aluminum gates have a shorter lifespan when compared to aluminum gates.

Safety 

Aluminum
Aluminum is light and cannot make a significant impact when it comes in contact with the object or persons. Therefore, aluminum is safer and cannot cause serious injuries on impact with individuals or objects. Installing aluminum gates in your home or business premises will give your no worry about the safety of your pets or kids during the opening and closing of the gate.

Stainless steel 
Stainless steel can triple the weight of the aluminum. When swung open, this massive structure can pose serious hazards to anyone that gets in its way. Moreover, stopping a stainless steel gate can be very harder hence more dangerous. The heavyweight steel gate at your home can pose more danger to your family and pets during opening and closing of the gate.

Automation 

Aluminum 
Aluminum is easier to automate than stainless steel. Its light weight allows the motor to work with little effort and last longer. In this case, the gate requires less expensive gate openers due to its light weight. Aluminum will not put much strain on the gears to stop the gate in motion. Also, the aluminum gate will not bend when it is hit by an obstacle it has less likelihood of bending hence less damage to mountings for gate opener.

Stainless steel 
Heavy-weight is the most limiting factor to the automation of the steel gate. In this case, you will need more advanced and sophisticated gate openers. Moreover, the heavy weight of the stainless steel gate will put much strain on the gears making it had to stop the gate in motion.



DIY installation 

Aluminum 
Aluminum is light weight making the drill work easier. Lifting the gate in place will not require a team of laborers. In fact, two people can easily lift the aluminum gate and put it in place to the required position. When fitting the gate with gate openers and accessories, one bit will be enough for drilling work. Since the aluminum gate installation requires less manpower, the installation is also cheaper compared to the stainless steel gate.

Stainless steel 
The heavy weight makes the installation of the stainless steel a difficult task. Positioning the gate to the position is a daunting task and requires many people for the job. In most cases, it requires up to 20 people to install the gate- the work that could have been done by 2 people for the aluminum gate. Moreover, drilling work is the biggest headache for installing this gate as the drill bits are made of steel. Moreover, the installation of stainless steel gate is more expensive due to more manpower required for installation.

Coating 

Aluminum
Coating an aluminum gate is easier and can be done with specialized durable powder that creates a thin layer of a protective coating. In this case, the aluminum gate can be coated to match your desired style. In this case, it will be much easier to customize the color of your aluminum gate to need to meet your needs.

Stainless steel
Stainless steel gates cannot be easily painted to meet your desired needs. In most cases, the stainless steel has to be powder coated to prevent exposure to rust. The standard coating powder looks nice when finished, but can look ugly when chipped or scratched.

It should be noted that coating powder is not paint and can get heated into a shell. However, there is no successful way to touch up the gap which results from cracked off shell. For steel gate, you will need a regular checkup to avoid “rust smacking”.



Material resilience 

Aluminum 
The 6060-T6 aluminum is a high-quality has yield strength of up to 35,000 pounds per square inch. In this case, the aluminum is much stronger than stainless steel that has yield strength of about 25,000 pounds per square inch. In this case, aluminum gates absorb pressure without distorting its shape. Moreover, aluminum resists snapping because of its high level of flexibility – like that of an airplane wing. The aluminum yields to pressure exerted on it and regain its original form when the pressure is released.

Stainless steel 
Bending and denting is a common problem with stainless steel. However, the steel has to be thinner to prevent denting. Steel does not resume shape after exerting the pressure. In this case, the steel gauge should be higher to withstand denting. As the gauge goes up, the weight and cost also rise. In this case, the ease of installation and safety goes down.

Moreover, some costs associated with denting of the stainless steel gate can be overlooked. In this case, the brackets for automation have to be placed in exact positions. Denting shift this placement leading to broken parts and more stress. Also, weight is a factor that leads to an increase in momentum that increases the force when the gate hits something. In this case, the yield strength of the stainless steel is much lower than that of the aluminum gate.

What are Double Glazing Windows?







Noise from various sources can cause severe irritation. As Singapore is a small country it is quite obvious that all the parts of it are fully developed with well furnished roads. As the roads pass by your house, vehicles will run on the roads. The honking sound of the vehicles can be pretty annoying as compared to any other noises. Apart from that at times you hear the sound of the dogs barking outside. During construction of buildings and others various machines are used. These machines make unbearable noise. Some people have problems with sleeping while noise is on outside. The noise can be very disturbing for children for concentrating on studies. Apart from that noise can be a source of various diseases. Single glazed windows can protect you from the bad effects noise to some extent but not sufficient. There come the double glazed windows in facilitating you a soundproof room.

What is the mechanism employed for double glazing windows?
These windows follow simple construction procedure with two glass panes separated by air gap. Depending upon manufacturer the air gap can be of variant lengths. The air gap between the glasses acts as the impediment for the sound coming from outside. The air gap is generally filled with non-reacting gases. These gases have the capacity to obstruct the noise from transmission. Apart from the heavy gases, the windows make use of a fortified frame made of mostly aluminium. The aluminium frame is also made with insulation fibres that again obstruct sound from transmitting from outside.

How much noise these windows are capable of stopping?
People have wrong notion that these windows have the capability to stop the noise by 100 percent. This is by far impossible in the present days. The transmission of noise in to your house may depend upon the architecture and design of your walls. Some of the noise enters your house through the walls. If you are able to fortify your walls from transmitting the noise through, then you may be able to achieve your dream of having almost 100 percent soundproof room. Without such architecture, you can reduce amount of noise substantially by using the windows. This is approximately 30 to 40 percent reduction in the noise levels. Most of the people consider this level of the noise as the tolerable level.



Do you need to replace your existing windows to install these windows?
It solely depends on you and the estate management. If you wish to replace your existing windows and your estate management denies it, you don’t need to be worried about installation of these windows.

If everything goes fine with the permission of the estate management and your will, you can get your existing windows replaced with the double glazing ones.

What type of houses can accommodate these types of windows?
These windows are suitable for both commercial and residential purposes. These can also be used in industrial areas where you have offices inside the industry. You can use these in your house. With the permission of your estate management, you can use the windows in the condo and HDB. These windows always fit in to office to provide you an environment free from noise and will to work.

Features of the Double glazing windows that are rarely known

* Double glazing windows have thermal insulation prowess better than the single glazing ones  
Most of you may not realise the importance of windows in preventing the flow of heat from outside to inside. The double glazing ones have the capability to stop the heat flowing from outside to inside. The extent up to which the windows can be able to resist the flow of heat inside can be measured with the help of the U-Value. This value is governed by the international standard based on Australian model. You can verify the same in the website of windows energy rating. While choosing these windows, you should be careful about checking U-value of the windows if you are concerned about the heat and insulation. Windows with low U-values are considered as the better windows.

*These windows are highly energy efficient
If you prefer the cooler air of the outer environment, you may not need to use these windows in place where there is no noise. If you are in a building with the air condition running 365 days, you must install these windows. These windows provide great insulation by not allowing the outer air to enter your house. In the same way these windows don’t let the inner cool air to go outside easily. Your air condition doesn’t need much energy to run. It means you are going to pay fewer bills for energy use even if you run your air condition 24*7.



* These windows support the green environment mission in a way better than the other windows

Apart from that you can get these windows installed in your limited budget. If you don’t think you can be able to use these in all of your windows, you can install these in some of the selected places of your house.
