Versatility
Aluminum's versatility has long made it a preferred material in many construction projects. Combined with the fact that it is available in numerous shapes and a spectrum of colors, its structural attributes allow aluminum to be used in nearly every application - from solar optimization in products like sun shades, light shelves and skylights to adding comfort in the most elite homes in the form of folding walls and sunrooms.

The Aluminum Material Council (AMC) of AAMA has worked diligently authoring standards so that the end user can be assured that they are utilizing the right aluminum product for their application. These standards continue to evolve as the market demands. Recently, hurricane and blast criterion have come to the forefront of the fenestration requirements. With the addition of AAMA standards, aluminum products have helped to pioneer the way forward to government and county code compliance. AMC exists to make sure that whatever next generation of requirements demand you can rest assured aluminum’s versatility will continue to make it a secure choice in those applications.
