What to consider when choosing Aluminium Company ?

When picking aluminium openings such as: aluminium doors, aluminium windows, roller shutters, canopies , roof-lights, louvers amongst others, the first step is to consider what you need and what you want for your home.

Aluminium openings should not only blend into your chosen architecture but should also enhance it. Your architect would be able to advise you on that else our professional team can always assist you. As an example, if you want more light into your home and you prefer an open concept for your common area (living, dining & kitchen), large sliding glass doors is what you seek.

JMD International provides one of the best aluminium bars and openings of the local market. It should be noted that JMD offers 10 years* warranty on aluminium bars and 2 years* warranty on accessories*

Choosing Aluminium Openings Over Wood – What Are The Advantages?

The openings in your house are one of the most important decisions when it comes to the building process. There exists so many different choices, colour, sizes but most importantly the material with which you will be making the windows and doors. 

When the discussion of the latter 2 arises, the same 2 options always appear; Wood or Aluminium? While many may engage in this age old discussion, we have prepared a list of advantages, which clearly shows why Aluminium is by far the winner of the competition between these 2 materials. JMD International specialized in aluminium openings in Mauritius compares:

  1. Durability

Windows and doors made out of aluminium provide such a long life and durability that it cannot be compared to any other material, even wood. Taking good care of the aluminium by performing regular and correct cleaning as well as maintenance resulting in the aluminium openings lasting for easily the better part of decades to come. 

Windows and doors made out of wood on the other hand are open to a number of complications such as warping, contracting or expanding due to temperature and humidity, or change in the material due to seasons of the year. These types of openings are hence easily spoiled and will require rapid replacement as they will end up being damaged. 

  1. Cost

The end cost of any opening job relies very much on the number of openings which are to be fitted. That being said, for the same given job, if aluminium were to be used, it would be much cheaper and cost effective than using wood. 

This is because aluminium is a more readily available and easy to obtain, owing to its relatively low price. Moreover, aluminium is much easier to work on hence furthermore reducing the price of using it for the job than using wood. 

  1. Maintenance

Wood being an organic material, is extremely vulnerable to a plethora of problems related to weather. As said above, it expands and contracts depending on the temperature and also is very prone to absorbing moisture, hence causing a phenomenon called warping, which is basically the wood getting deformed. 

As a result, wood windows require much maintenance which might just add up to the already hefty price for installing it. 

Aluminium on the other hand, is not affected by such environmental related problems. It effectively fights against any kind of deterioration from all types of weather and climate without you having to do a single thing. 

  1. Manipulation

Aluminium is extremely beneficial when it comes to interior design. Owing to its high malleability, the metal can easily be beaten and and shaped in order to fit any sort of window design. If you have windows of uncommon shapes, Aluminium is definitely the way to go. 

Wood is rigid and requires much craftsmanship and effort to be able to shape it into peculiar geometry.  Additionally, the process will be extremely costly. 

  1. Security

When it comes to the question of security, aluminium is second to none. The metal is the clear winner in this category compared to any other. It offers maximum security and reliability which is very difficult for wood to offer. 

For any of your aluminium opening jobs in Mauritius, contact JMD International, which is a highly respected and experienced company in the domain, offering only state of the art and the most reliable service on the island.

Aluminium windows Mauritius

The building and construction industry in Mauritius has changed drastically in the last twenty or even 10 years. Standards are not the same and even in openings and doors. If you are planning the construction of a new house, apartment or commercial building, you might probably be convinced by the modern look of aluminium windows in Mauritius.


Nevertheless, we’ll in this article take a look at what aluminium openings are and how they can benefit your home or commercial building. This article is brought to you by JMD International. Our company was created with the ambition to service the construction industry and more specifically the fenestration business.

Why aluminium window?


At JMD, our aluminum windows are timeless, individual and convince with many positive
features. They are lightweight, extremely stable and require only a small amount of
maintenance for a long service life. Due to the high stability and load-bearing capacity,
aluminum can also be used to produce windows in unusual sizes or shapes that would not be feasible with other materials.

Why buy an aluminum window?


Long life and easy care, aluminum doors and windows are permanent and need no painting.They have thermally separated profiles, which also have very good insulating properties. As a corrosion-free light metal, aluminum is extremely easy to clean and even bad weather conditions. Thanks to the high-quality stove enamel finish, even after a few years, it still seems to shine. They require little maintenance. Here are some key features:

● Stainless light metal
● Long-lasting colors by stoving
● Low maintenance

Modern looking windows


The appearance of an aluminum window differs significantly from windows made of other
materials. Aluminium windows look sophisticated and of premium quality. Aluminium frames can also be shaped to harmoniously blend in the design of your building.
All window shapes can be produced with aluminum profiles. When large window sizes are
desired, it can no longer be produced with a plastic profile. Elaborate and expensive to product are semi-circular, circular or window with a segmental arc, since the production of the round elements requires a lot of manual work.

Thermal insulation

The standard version is always equipped with double insulating glazing. Since metal has less good insulation properties than, say, wood, it is important to pay attention to good seals and insulations in aluminum windows.


So even passive house windows can be made of aluminum. Our aluminum windows are
equipped with special materials and profiled insulating bars. As a result, our products achieve very good thermal insulation values.
