APL & Sustainability
The APL sustainability policy defines a wide range of environmental measures that operate across all aspects of our business. This includes extruding, powder coating, anodising, packing and distribution.
The high energy requirement in aluminium manufacturing is examined from a number of angles in the policy paper, and a favourable comparison has been made between aluminium and alternative window materials for both recyclability and durability.
In addition to practical steps at an operational level, APL markets a range of thermally efficient window and door systems for greater energy efficiency in homes. The thermally broken ThermalHEART products offer home-owners and designers major advantages in conforming to the insulation provisions of the Building Code.
