Thermally Broken Suites
The Thermal suite, featuring ‘thermal break’ polyamide technology, delivering up to a 73% increase in thermal efficiency. When usedin conjunction with the right glass, this will help you achieve a warmer drier home in the winter, and reducing heat in summer, resulting in lower energy bills throughout the year. With changes to the building code requiring better home efficiencies, this will soon be the norm when it comes to aluminium joinery.
HOW DOES A THERMAL JOINERY WORK
You can see from the below close up of the frame it shows you the polyamide strip (or thermal break), which reduces the transfer of the outside temperature through the frame.
WHY THERMAL FRAMES MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In comparison to non-thermal frames, you will see a significant difference in the inside frame temperatures. In the example below, where the outside temperatures on each model are at -1C, there is a noticeable difference inside!
