Why Thermal Break Aluminium?

01 DURABLE

Both aluminium and polyamide materials are resistant to chemical agents. Aluminium is a rust-free material with high mechanical strength, which guarantees that its shape will be maintained over the years. There are at present windows with a life of over 40 years that are still in working.

02 SAFETY IN CASE OF FIRE

Aluminium has a melting point of 660ºC, polyamide has a melting point of 260 ºC. Both aluminium and polyamide are incombustible and harmless when they have melted. Hence, RPT aluminium windows are of guaranteed safety in case of fire.

03 SECURE AGAINST ATTACKS

Aluminium is a material with a resistance of 700,000 Kg/cm2. It is therefore used in applications that require high-resistance, such as the chassis of vehicles, planes, etc. In the enclosures of homes, it provides the security of protection against external attacks.

04 INFINITE RANGE OF COLOURS AND FINISHES

The metallic nature of aluminium means that it can be decorated with as many colours as may be imagined and an unlimited range of textures can be applied to it. Aluminium used for the manufacture of windows is a material to which more colours and textures can be applied than any other.

05 LUMINOUS

Thanks to the strength of aluminium, more can be done with less. Aluminium windows allow more light in, given that they require a small profile section to perform their function.

06 VERSATILE

Windows and doors manufactured with ITESAL Thermal Bridge Break (thermal barriers) are developed in such a way that they can be adapted to any constructive situation. They can be curves, large sizes and shapes,... guaranteeing, thanks to the mechanical strength of aluminium, their high safety and durability.

07 EASE OF MAINTENANCE

The mechanical qualities and strength of the chemical agents of aluminium and polyamide mean that aluminium windows with Thermal Bridge Break are easy to maintain over time.

08 ACOUSTIC INSULATION

The key factor in acoustic insulation is the sealing of the enclosure. Given the dimensional stability of aluminium, its mechanical strength and the advanced design of ITESAL systems, acoustic insulation is maintained throughout the life-cycle of the enclosure.

09 EVOLVED AND EVOLVING

Aluminium windows and doors have been manufactured for over 50 years, evolving year after year, achieving quality standards that are difficult for other materials to match.

10 RECYCLABLE AND ECOLOGICAL

Aluminium is a non-toxic material, like polyamide, a 100% recyclable material with no loss of quality. The combination of the two components creates high-technology enclosures with excellent thermal insulation properties. The union of polyamide with aluminium creates a high-technology material for the manufacture of sustainable enclosures. Given its greater strength, it needs a smaller section than other materials, allowing more light to enter, thereby reducing the need for interior lighting.
