Aluminium is the ideal material for building frames, because it is undoubtedly concentrates wealth of advantages. This material combines high mechanical strength, excellent aesthetics, with “unlimited” life and minimal maintenance requirements.
It becomes clear that all of unsuitable frames and panes, are responsible for the heat loss of the interiors. In areas of Greece where there are correspondingly high temperatures in summer and low in winter, the need for thermal break aluminum systems indispensable. The replacement of single glazing with double glazing would reduce energy consumption by 32%, while simultaneously insulating the exterior walls, the savings can reach 50%. The use of aluminum frames with thermal break, in comparison with the simple “cold”, reduces the heat loss from the frames at 1/3 and contributes to reduction of heating costs in 1/5.
Another key factor in selecting frames with thermal break requirements is to protect the frame and near the surface of the phenomenon of liquefaction. Aluminum is a good conductor of heat and transfer cold inside surface of the frame. This results in the inner hot air comes into contact with the cold surface of the aluminum and liquefied. So on very cold winter days there is intense liquefaction and water runoff from the surface of aluminum at risk are damaged nearby walls, floors and objects that come into contact with water.
The thermal break frame incorporates a special insulating material, called polyamide. Polyamide interposed between the outer and inner surface (rod) of the profile, to stitch and then becoming a single profile. As a poor conductor of heat, “interrupts” the influence of the external temperature on the inner surface of the frame, eliminating the phenomenon of liquefaction and consequently all problems arising.
