What Are Glazed Thermally Efficient Steel Replacement Windows?

Steel frame windows can look smart but they are poor conductors of heat and nobody likes a cold house. However, there is a ‘best of both worlds’ solution: warm polyamide thermal break aluminium frames. Now that may sound confusing, but here at Jennyfields we are experts in steel replacement windows, we will be breaking down exactly what that means and how they could benefit you.


What Is Polyamide Thermal Break Aluminium?

A thermal break is essentially an insertion of an insulating material (polyamide), which interrupts the thermal transfer through an aluminium profile. As you probably know if you have steel-framed windows, steel is a conductor, meaning it gets very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter, which isn’t very good for your heating bill. The thermal break helps to insulate your home and keep the heat in and the cold out.


Advantages Of Polyamide Thermal Break Aluminium

Firstly, you keep the look and style of steel frames as aluminium faithfully replicates the look. Aluminium is resistant to rust and chemicals, it requires little to no maintenance and is very strong and therefore unlikely to warp or shift, this also makes it less vulnerable to break-ins. What’s more, aluminium comes in a wide range of colours, has a long service life and ensures good acoustic insulation.


Environmental Benefits

Not only can aluminium be completely recycled, helping to reduce waste to landfill and pollution but the thermal break helps to reduce heating bills. This not only saves you money but reduces the use of fossil fuels and the pollution created in doing so. The insulating qualities don’t just keep your home warm in the winter but also help to keep your home cool in the summer, reducing the need for air conditioning.
