60 % of windows in China are made from metal, creating a need for solutions for the energy-efficient insulation of aluminium windows
There is a good reason why windows with aluminium frames are becoming more and more popular in China. Almost indestructible when subjected to the effects of weather and wear and tear, metal windows are durable and flexible in their use. With the right insulation, they also comply with the stringent requirements imposed by the state and by environmental policy with regard to the energy efficiency and sustainability of buildings.
Systems manufacturers and metal and window construction companies in China are benefiting from the many advantages offered by aluminium frames in windows and doors. However, they also have to confront several challenges in the production process. The stipulated values for e.g. permeability of joints, resistance to driving rain, wind load, heat insulation, airborne sound insulation and burglar resistance of the window must be complied with. It is very important in today’s modern China to meet the high standards when it comes to environmental protection and the energy efficiency of the building.
Reducing energy losses at the window
It is precisely this which is the starting point for China’s processing companies and window manufacturers, because around 40 % of a building’s heat loss is through its windows. With plastic thermal insulating bars, the aluminium profiles can be reliably insulated from the inner and outer shells. Systems manufacturers and metal and window construction companies that want to produce fit-for-the-future windows and doors need high-quality, durable and energy-efficient solutions for the insulation of the window frames.
