What is the Thermal Break Windows And Doors?
The aluminum thermal break windows and doors are made of aluminum thermal break profiles and hollow glass.
This type of window and door also have functions of energy-saving, sound insulation, noise prevention, dust prevention, waterproofing.
1. what is the aluminum thermal break profiles?
Thermal break profiles use the aluminum profiles and also thermoplastic mixed material strip to combine.
Firstly, make the normal aluminum profiles.
Secondly, use the knurling machine, and strip rolling pressing machine to make the aluminum profiles and plastic material combine together.
Thermal break profiles solve the fatal problem of aluminum profiles which rapid heat dissipation and not energy-saving.
There are three parts left and the right side is the aluminum, and the middle side the plastic material. Please check the below picture.
2. what is the advantages of the thermal break windows and doors?
We use the aluminum thermal break window door profile to make the windows and doors.
And we call this type of window door as aluminum thermal break window and door.
Therefore, thermal break windows and doors have many advantages as follows:
1) Reduced heat transfer.
The thermal break profiles’ thermal conductivity is 1.8 ~ 3.5W / ㎡ · k. And this is much lower than ordinary aluminum profiles.
At the same time, we use the insulating glass. This will effectively reduce the heat transmitted through doors and windows.
2) Prevent condensation
The temperature of the inner surface of the profile with the heat insulation strip is close to the indoor temperature.
In this way, this will reduce the possibility of the indoor moisture condensing on the profile surface due to supersaturation.
3) Energy saving
In winter, the window frame with heat insulation strip can reduce 1/3 of the heat lost through the window frame.
In summer, if there is air conditioning, the window frame with heat insulation strip can also be more reduce energy loss.
4) Environmental protection
Through the application of thermal insulation systems, energy consumption can be reduced.
At same time, it will reduce the environmental radiation due to air conditioning and indoor heating system.
5) Reduce noise
We could use different hollow glass structures with different thicknesses, and different structure of aluminum profiles.
This can effectively reduce the resonance effect of sound waves, prevent sound transmission, and reduce noise by more than 30dB.
6) Various colors
For the thermal break profiles, we have many choices for the surface colors.
And the color is available and also the wooden color. This is very convenient to match our homes and buildings.
3. Main classification
- Firstly, according to the opening method
The fixed window, upper hanging window, middle hanging window, lower hanging window, vertical swing window, casement window door, sliding window door, casement lower hanging window door, folding doors, floor spring doors, lifting sliding doors, sliding folding doors, and so on.
- Secondly, according to performance
it can be divided into ordinary windows and doors, sound insulation windows and doors, and insulation windows and doors.
- Thirdly, according to the series model
50 series, 55 series, 60 series, 65 series, 70 series, etc.
1) Casement window
There are some advantages such as large opening area, good ventilation, good sealing, excellent sound insulation, heat preservation and impermeability.
The inside-opening window cleaning is convenient. And the outside-opening does not take up space when opened.
The disadvantage is that the window is small and the field of vision is not wide.
The outside opening window also takes up some space outside the wall, and it is also easy to be damaged when the wind is strong.
The inside window takes up some space in the room, and it is also not convenient to use the screen window.
It is also inconvenient to use curtains when opening the window. If the quality is not enough, it may seep rain.
2) sliding window
The advantages of sliding windows are simple and beautiful, large window width, large glass block, wide field of vision, high daylighting rate, convenient glass cleaning, flexible use, safe and reliable, long service life, opening in a plane, less space occupation and convenient installation of screens, and so on.
The disadvantage is that two windows cannot be opened at the same time, and can also only be opened at the most half, the ventilation is relatively poor.
Sometimes the sealing is also slightly poor. Sliding windows: There are two types of sliding windows: left, right, and up and down.
3) up hanging window
It is a new form developed on the basis of casement windows.
There also have two ways to open the window. One is casement opening. The other is opening from top.
When the casement window is closed, a gap of about ten centimeters can be opened by pulling the upper part of the window inward.
That is to say the window can be opened a little from above.
The opened part is suspended in the air, and is fixed to the window frame by a hinge.
There have some advantages. It can not only be ventilated but also ensure safety.
Because of the hinge, the window can only open a ten-centimeter seam, and it can’t reach from the outside.
4) casement door
The casement door normally has two types.
One is a single door sash, and the other has two door sash.
The casement door also has two opening ways one-way opening and two-way opening.
The one-way opening can only open in one direction (only push in or pull out).
The two-way opening means that the door sash can open in two directions (such as spring doors).
5) Thermal Break Windows And Doors - sliding door
At early time, we always use the sliding doors for our bedroom or locker room.
Bbut with the development of technology and the diversification of decoration ways, from the traditional plate surface to glass, fabric, rattan, aluminum alloy profiles, from sliding doors, folding doors to partition doors.
The function and use range of sliding doors are expanding.
In this case, the use of sliding doors began to become diverse and rich. In addition to the most common partition doors, sliding doors are widely used in bookcases, wall cabinets, living rooms, exhibition halls, sliding doors, etc.
Above is the simple introduce about the thermal break windows and doors.
