Reasons to choose Thermally Broken Windows
Thermal Break Technology
The thermal break in Kuuyee windows and doors is created using a polyamide strip between the aluminium exterior and interior elements. Polyamide is an excellent thermal insulator. The thermal break minimizes the transfer of heat and cold through the aluminium window frame, giving the thermally broken aluminium window excellent insulation properties. Polyamide has very similar expansion rates to aluminium, ensuring AMJ extrusions maintain excellent structural integrity.
The insulation properties of a window are measured as a U-value. The U-value provides and indication of how much heat energy is transferred through a window. The lower the U-value, the better the window is at keeping the heat or cold out.
The illustration right shows how the insulation properties of Kuuyee window and door systems, combined with appropriate glass selection, improve the U-value and window performance in a cold climate. The principles would operate in reverse in a warm climate.AMJ window and door systems provide excellent insulation minimizing the transfer of heat or cold between the internal and external environment.
