Thermally broken aluminum impact windows and doors
Now you can have it all!
Aluminum frames have long been a popular choice among homeowners due to their strength and relatively low level of maintenance but left many wishing they had more options regarding energy efficiency. Now homeowners can have both strength and energy efficiency thanks to thermally broken aluminum.
Thermally broken aluminum has been on the market for several years and is gaining popularity. Thermally broken windows are manufactured with a barrier in between the inside and outside window frames to prevent heat transfer, making them energy efficient. The two main processes of creating thermally broken aluminum are 1) thermal bar and 2) pour and debridge. The thermal bar method consists of placing a strip of polyamide in the cavity of the window frame and tightly sealing it, the pour and debridge method consists of pouring liquid polyurethane in the window frame cavity.
While manufacturers are catching onto the energy efficiency craze and creating products to satisfy the demand, Windoor Inc. has long been ahead of the curve. Atlantic Armor is an authorized Windoor Inc. dealer and showcases Windoor Inc. products in its showroom.
