Adding insulating, thermal, polyamide strut to aluminum framing members separates the inside and outside metal, which greatly enhances a window, door, skylight, storefront or curtainwall system’s thermal performance. This thermal break reduces the amount of heat transfer, therefore saving energy and increasing occupant comfort.
At Linetec, we offer a fully crimped thermal strut system. We have no restrictions on the degree of curvature in aluminum framing members. For corners, our 90-degree thermal strip process not only saves time and labor, but also minimizes inconsistencies and waste, holds customer-specified tolerances for U-Factor and shear testing, and delivers a high-quality finished product.
Our thermal strut also presents a cost-effective opportunity for dual finishing options, where one finish type or color is used on the exterior and another on the interior. Our finishes may be specified in nearly any color of liquid paint, in decorative wood grain finishes, or in anodize including our no-patina copper or brushed stainless finishes.
