FAQ's - Aluminium Cills
An aluminium cill is a common type of external window cill - which is the ledge that sits at the bottom of a window frame. A cill helps redirect water to ensure it cannot penetrate or damage external walls; they are typically installed on an angle to allow for rain and snow to run off away from the wall. Window cills moreover play a structural role through stabilising the bottom of the window.
This is an essential feature on small and large scale residential and commercial buildings alike.
A window cill should have enough overhang so that rain or snow drips away from the external wall; this is typically 25mm from the face of the wall as a minimum.
There are various types of window cills, which may be chosen depending on the facade of the building.
Window cill types include:
- Wood - wood offers a more traditional look, though is susceptible to weather damage
- Aluminium - this metal is economic for large builds, with great corrosion resistance
- Plastic - plastic such as uPVC has good corrosion resistance, however has reduced strength compared to aluminium
- Stone - stone offers a traditional look, however may be more expensive
