What is a Thermal Break?
A thermal break is an element of low thermal conductivity placed in an assembly to reduce the flow of thermal energy between conductive materials such as Aluminium. Thermal Breaks made of polyamide have been the chosen method of thermally breaking aluminium window products for more than thirty years in Europe, where the product originated.
Alspec® uses only Technoform Polyamide Strips in our ThermAFrame. Technoform Thermal Breaks are made of fibreglass-reinforced polyamide with glass fibres oriented in 3 directions for optimal structural performance. Structural performance and mechanical response are exceptional with the multidirectional glass fibres oriented in 3D to give improved load transfer.
