This thermally efficient range is ideal for those jobs where minimising cold and condensation is a priority.
ThermalHEART technology incorporates a glass fibre-reinforced nylon insulator or thermal break between the aluminium exterior and interior elements, resulting in windows and doors that are 35% (FIRST® Metro Series) and 20% (FIRST® Residential) more thermally efficient than standard double glazed products.
Released to meet new insulation requirements for homes, ThermalHEART is a high performance system for FIRST® Residential and FIRST® Metro Series, providing maximum energy conservation and interior comfort.
The Technical Benefits
The ThermalHEART insulator in every profile is an excellent ‘thermal break’ to minimise the tran
sfer of cold and the incidence of condensation.
Designed to be used in conjunction with insulated glass units (double glazing) up to 24mm thick for a fully effective barrier system.
The jointing process for window and door extrusions ensures that the composite ThermalHEART/aluminium profiles have optimum straightness and rigidity.
Frames are based on a large 46mm platform ensuring suitability for a wide range of residential projects.
Doors are generally suitable to heights of 2.1m in ‘very high’ wind zones.
