Thermal Break System
Thermally Broken is a term which relates to the window or door frame, which is equally as important, if not more as the glass. The frame of a window has a significant impact on the overall energy efficiency of any window and door including that of a double glazed system. While double glazing is seen as a benchmark for energy efficiency, to use double glazing with a standard aluminium frame is only serving half way to having a high performing energy efficient window. Double Glazing is to glass what thermally broken is to aluminium windows. The most energy efficient windows result from a combination of both an insulated frame and the right glass to achieve superior energy performance. Thermally Broken windows will not only save you money on the energy bills but they can also play a significant role in improving the overall comfort of your home.
