For 45 years we have committed ourselves to manufacturing the most durable, longest lasting windows and doors in the industry. But we know that our products are more than just frames and glass – they are truly your windows to the world. While our quality components and stringent manufacturing processes keep your windows looking beautiful, our environmental practices help ensure your view remains just as striking.
Whether it’s through our recycling programs or our lean manufacturing initiative, we strive to conserve precious resources and eliminate waste at all levels throughout our organization.
All of our products are designed with conservation in mind. Our energy efficient line up helps you reduce your heating and cooling costs year round, saving you money while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Each of us must do our part to reduce our environmental footprint. Over the past several years, we have instituted numerous projects under the umbrella of our green initiative. Here are some of the highlights:
Cardboard and Packaging Paper
We recognise that cardboard or packaging paper is made out of a valuable resource and needs to be recycled for reuse. All cardboard or packaging paper is recycled and is used in the production of other consumer goods.
A timber base is a flat transport structure that supports goods in a stable fashion while being lifted by a forklift. We receive our aluminium on timber bases and recycle them by sending back with the supplier for reuse.
Roughly 60 per cent of the aluminium ever produced is still in the system being used in some form. Aluminium is easy to recycle, including offcuts, and requires very little energy to do so. We recycle our Aluminium to ensure that we are doing our bit for sustainability.
Glass is 100% recyclable – it can be recycled indefinitely to make new glass.
Glass is made of the simplest ingredients – silica sand, soda ash and limestone. When used glass is crushed, it returns virtually to its natural state. It is inert, non-toxic and can’t contaminate the environment even when disposed of in landfill sites. But there is also no reason why glass containers should ever take up valuable landfill space when they can be used, over and over again.
We currently dispose of glass in landfill sites. However, going forward, our target is to recycle clear glass indefinitely so that it can be made into new glass products.
We reduce energy consumption by ensuring that lighting and electrical manufacturing plant systems are powered off during non-production hours. We are considering other energy efficiency initiatives such as upgrading all lighting in the manufacturing plant to high efficient lighting.
When you do business with socially responsible companies like All Weather Windows, you’re doing your part to help protect the planet for generations to come. After all – what good are windows if there is nothing to see?
