About a Window into Aluminium
The readership of A Window Into Aluminium is a mixture of architects, specifiers, fabricators and installers, together with the CAB membership and wider aluminium fenestration market.  If any part of your business involves aluminium windows, doors, conservatories or shopfronts, or the hardware and machinery which complete the package, then you will benefit from reading A Window Into Aluminium every month.  It covers all aluminium products used in building construction, including cladding, roofing, structure and much more.  Editorial covers the whole aluminium market but editorial from CAB members is identified with a small CAB logo.

About Council for Aluminium in Building
The Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB) was formed in 1994 by the bringing together of three existing trade associations, the Architectural Aluminium Association, the Patent Glazing Contractors Association and the Aluminium Window Association, all of whom had been established for well over 25 years. CAB’s mission is to support the interests of the aluminium supply chain in both the commercial and residential markets, to encourage quality and best practice, to set new technical standards and protect members' business and contractual interests. One of the main challenges for the aluminium industry today is to improve the cyclical nature of the material by recycling aluminium within specific grades making products virtually 100% recyclable. More about the CAB Closed Loop Recycling initiative can be found on the associations website.
