High Thermal Performance Technology

Kawneer’s Product Manager for Storefronts, Entrances and Framing Chris Schultz explains in his most recent thought leadership video how Kawneer utilizes its leading-edge knowledge of materials and manufacturing to design innovative products for increased thermal performance and energy conservation.

As building energy codes become more stringent, manufacturers push to create innovative solutions around thermal technology. Thus, thermal breaks help improve the thermal performance of architectural aluminum systems. Kawneer’s complete line of thermal framing, curtain wall and windows are designed to provide the highest-quality thermal products and thermal performance in the industry while meeting current building thermal requirements for new or retrofit construction using storefront framing, curtain wall or window wall systems.

Kawneer’s thermal products and technology offer a legacy of quality and a product line innovative solutions to solve most thermal challenges, supported by strict quality control during the manufacturing process. All products are manufactured and tested according to applicable NFRC, AAMA and ASTM procedures.

The patented IsoPour™ Thermal Break technology merges industry-proven pour and debridge with polymer isolator technologies, creating thermally broken assemblies for enhanced building energy efficiencies with high structural performance. 

Also, Kawneer’s IsoPour™ Thermal Break technology helps eliminate cold spots, reduce condensation and provides dual finish options for design flexibility. The unique thermal break allows for more complex aluminum extrusion shapes and a wider selection of locking option hardware for thermally broken doors. 

Kawneer is committed to introducing thermal breaks into our various systems, such as our curtain wall, storefront framing and window wall solutions, to make our products higher performing and achieve the design goals architects need while lowering the total operational cost of buildings.
