What is a Thermally Broken Extruded Aluminum Channel?
Thermally broken extruded aluminum channel reduces conductivity in aluminum extrusions by separating it into two thermally broken parts.
It involves independent extrusion of both the outside and inside aluminum with cavities to accept thermal strut.
By joining both profiles using an insulated polyamide strip, thermally broken aluminum strip provides extra insulation.
Thermal barriers improve thermal performance of the extruded aluminum extrusions while retaining the structural durability.
