It’s all about the frame!
As the most important component of any door or window, the frame is the factor that affects the energy efficiency of any instalment, including that of a double-glazed system. Though ceiling and wall insulation does contribute in a big way for your home, building or office, the right frame of your door or window is what helps maintain the temperature in the vicinity.
Here, we discuss how aluminum doors and windows do so.
Aluminum is a good conductor of hot and cold temperature, so you lose a good amount of heat through the frame itself. To combat this, a thermal break is added to the frame that makes all the different for this style of home fittings.
Thermal break technology consists of a reinforced polyamide bar that is placed between the inside and outside of the aluminum bar itself. This helps create an insulated barrier inside the window frame. And that helps the frame conduct hot and cold temperature as well as noise at a much slower rate than normal aluminum.
Thermal windows and doors offer a better solution through their thermal conductivity in terms of energy efficiency. By pairing aluminum windows with thermal breaks, with multiple panes of glass, you get a window that is not only long lasting and durable, but also energy efficient since it meets the stringent building codes that are required for each fitting.
Low Cost of Ownership
This is perhaps the most important factor for homeowners. When it comes to doors and windows, we need options that have a long lifespan. You have choices like vinyl, wood and steel.
However, aluminum has a lifespan of more than 20 years. By pairing that with the durability factor and the inherent strength of the windows and doors, we have a product that easily outperforms other materials in the market.
There aren’t many building materials that offer the same versatility as aluminum. From modern styles to Victorian, traditional to minimalist designs, aluminum windows can be bought in numerous styles including casement, sliding, tilt and turn and louvre types. Thermally broken aluminum windows complement almost every design in architecture.
