AAMA's Aluminum Material Council publishes sustainability white paper

The Aluminum Material Council (AMC) of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has released a new white paper on aluminum’s sustainability, strength and efficiency entitled, "Aluminum: The Total Solution for Sustainable, Strong and Efficient Commercial Building Design."   “The overall goal of the AMC white paper is to encapsulate the many strategic advantages when incorporating aluminum extrusions into today’s commercial fenestration products,” says Brent Slaton (Keymark), chair of AAMA’s AMC Marketing Committee. “These advantages include energy efficiency, recyclability/sustainability, cost advantages, freedom of design, strength to weight ratio and the plethora of colors and finishes available in the marketplace.

Throughout this white paper, it’s easily understandable as to why aluminum extrusions have been used by design professionals for decades.”

According to the "AAMA/WDMA 2011/2012 Study of the U.S. Market for Windows, Doors and Skylights, in 2011," aluminum accounted for nearly 40 percent of the nonresidential entry door market and 24 percent of the nonresidential interior door market. Aluminum framed skylights were the dominant (87 percent) configuration on the market in 2011.

"Aluminum: The Total Solution for Sustainable, Strong and Efficient Commercial Building Design" is available for free download in AAMA’s online Publication Store. Companies are encouraged to include a link to the white paper on their own websites.

More information about AAMA and its activities can be found via the AAMA Media Relations page or on the AAMA website, www.aamanet.org.

AAMA is the source of performance standards, product certification, and educational programs for the fenestration industry.(SM)
