Aluminium is a strong yet flexible material, allowing windows to easily be formed into complex shapes. Aluminium windows have been the number one choice with the Australian consumers, but with the increase in technology, such as a thermal break, a decline in the demand for aluminium windows has been seen in residential properties. The strong and flexible characteristics of aluminium make them ideal for larger and obscure openings.
Aluminium windows are distinguished by their slim framing sections, allowing almost maximum visibility through the opening. They are easy to maintain; the frames can be conveniently washed with soap and water and then rinsed with clean water. The original finish from aluminium windows can be prolonged by proper maintenance.
Aluminium does not have the greatest thermal properties, conducting heat which then enters your home. To prevent the transfer of heat into the house, a thermal break is inserted between the aluminium to increase thermal resistance, while retaining the structural strength.
The thermal break is a polyamide strip inserted between the aluminium exterior and interior elements. Polyamide is used as a thermal break as it has very similar expansion rates to aluminium. The introduction of polyamide to an aluminium window does not affect the structural properties of the product.
Thermally broken technology is 50% more thermally efficient than standard non-thermally broken aluminium framing.
