BENEFITS OF ALUMINCO SYSTEMS
High thermal & sound insulation
Thermal and sound insulation are top criteria in the selection of aluminium frames because they upgrade buildings, improve the quality of life of the users and contribute to the protection of the environment.
Thermal transmittance defines how easily heat (measured in watts) passes through a material of a certain thickness and area of one square meter in one hour. It should be remembered that the flow of heat is always in the direction from the hottest to the coolest. In winter, heat escapes from the interior to the colder exterior, while in summer the heat is directed towards the interior of buildings. The coefficient of thermal transmittance determines the thermal insulation capacity of the building element and gives the amount of heat that is transferred.
An aluminium energy system owes its thermal insulation to the thermal break. The thermal break is the interference between the inner and outer aluminium profile, a material that is a poor conductor of heat, and is achieved by using polyamide, an insulating material that also contributes to the robustness of the frames. It is applied as a barrier to the cross-section of the profile and is essentially a thermoplastic resin. What it does in practice is to interrupt the transmission of external temperature to the inside of the window frames, as it is a poor conductor of heat. This reduces pollutants, heating and cooling operating costs.
Two important factors that have a catalytic effect on minimizing heat loss are the glazing type as well as the aluminium frame.
Type of glazing:
Type of aluminium frame
The annoyance caused by external noise degrades the quality of life and has a negative impact on health, living and communication. It is significant that the World Health Organization considers noise pollution to be the second most important environmental health risk.
Sound insulation is an important factor in the choice of frames. A frame with the appropriate sound insulation class effectively reduces the noise level within homes or workplaces.
The most important part that contributes to sound insulation is the glass pane because it occupies the largest surface area of the entire frame. Of course, in proportion to its area, the frame of the system also plays its role in the overall sound insulation.
Acoustic insulation should be one of the main features that aluminium systems should have to meet modern requirements for avoiding noise transmitted through the air.
To meet the above requirements, doors and windows should meet at least the following properties:
Unlike thermal insulation, the sound insulation achieved does not depend on whether the glazing is double, triple, etc., but on the thickness of the glazing. Increasing the thickness of the glass pane improves the sound insulation.
