Building security is a matter of balancing expenses. The challenge is predicting the theoretical cost of a serious breach. How much would a burglary cost your business, and what would you pay to prevent it?

Fortunately, the security market now accommodates budgets of all stripes. The range of framing materials available exemplifies this choice. Stainless steel and aluminum stand out as the most robust materials. But how do they compare? Let’s delve into the specifics.

Stainless Steel Versus Aluminum Security Windows

Durability and Strength: A Common Ground

Both stainless steel and aluminum windows are renowned for their high durability and strength. These materials are engineered to endure, providing long-lasting security solutions for various applications. Whether you’re safeguarding a commercial establishment or a high-security facility, the robustness of these materials ensures that they stand the test of time.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel windows are the epitome of resilience. Designed to withstand a range of ballistic attacks, they offer a level of protection that is hard to match. Their composition allows them to resist environmental damage, ensuring they remain unyielding even in the harshest conditions.

Moreover, stainless steel windows can be tailored for both forced entry resistance and attack resistance. This dual functionality makes them a versatile choice for a myriad of security needs. Furthermore, they can be designed as a “non-ricochet type,” capturing and retaining attacking projectiles, thereby minimizing collateral damage.

Aluminum Windows

Aluminum windows, while equally durable, bring a different set of advantages to the table. These windows can be designed for both bullet and blast resistance, making them a preferred choice for locations that might be susceptible to explosive threats. All our aluminum windows are built with heavy-duty metal and are loaded with bullet-resistant fiberglass backings for added protection.

Making the Right Choice

While both stainless steel and aluminum windows offer unparalleled strength and durability, the choice between them often boils down to specific security needs. Stainless steel windows, with their ability to withstand ballistic attacks and environmental damage, are ideal for high-risk areas. On the other hand, aluminum windows, with their bullet and blast resistance capabilities, are perfect for locations that require a broader spectrum of protection.
