The fast, reliable way to find insulating profiles for metal windows with the insulbar® Finder

When it comes to the insulation of metal windows, doors and facades, insulating profiles are here to stay. Their role is to ensure the thermal separation of frames, and so to improve the energy efficiency of the entire building. During the window planning and design phase, a decision about the right insulating profile to address the project’s specific needs has to be taken at an early stage. But how to determine the optimum profile?

Given the wide-ranging demands made on contemporary metal windows, doors and facades, the development of a new system is time-consuming and complex. To simplify the search for the right insulating profile, a search system has been launched on the Chinese market which provides rapid, reliable support for system developers: The „insulbar® Finder“. It was developed by one of the world’s leading suppliers of insulating profiles, the German company Ensinger, with the aim of giving designers a basis for deciding which insulating profile to use right from an early stage of the development process.

The simple, efficient way to the right insulating profile.

The profile selector „insulbar® Finder“ guides users step by step to the right product from the extensive range of standard insulbar® profiles. The Finder also is easy and convenient to use.

Profile search based on the window system cross section:

Users can start their search using known information about the planned system cross section of a window. If users choose to use this search option, they first have to decide on an opening method. The next step is to narrow down the frame properties, such as the Uf value and various dimensions. The selection process is completed by providing information on the window itself.

Profile search based on the window geometry:

Other points of entry for searching are parameters relating to the geometry or the article number of the required profile. No matter which route users choose, in the end they will be given all the technical information about the selected profile.

For Vincent Wei, Head of Sales for the insulbar Division of Ensinger in China, the new selection tool is an important aid: „Using the insulbar® Finder, we can provide our customers with support right from the earliest development stage – irrespective of the time or place.

By deciding in favour of an existing insulating profile they will be faster to market with their systems. In addition, this means eliminating any costs for specially required tools.

The profile finder can be used by anyone free of charge and without any technical effort online at Registered users can also download additional technical documentation and access customer advice. If required, it is also possible to submit an immediate online inquiry about the selected profiles – with a simple mouse click.


This product selector simplifies searching for and locating the optimum insulating profile during the planning and design of metal windows, doors and facades.

Ensinger is inviting anyone interested to come and get acquainted with the insulbar® Finder live at the Fenestration Trade Fair (Stand no. 403, Hall E2) in Beijing from November 9 – 12.
