Conventional anodized aluminum finishes are known for their beauty and availability. To help provide protection for the conventional anodized finish, the porous anodic film is subjected to a hot water or steam sealing process; however, aqueous seals cannot completely close every pore of the anodic layer.
A key component to thermally broken storefront systems by YKK AP are the 6/6 nylon polyamide glass fiber reinforced pressure extruded bars that join two separate extrusions into one thermally broken frame. The MegaTherm aluminum framing storefront system offers unmatched performance and durability by saving energy and reducing condensation.
Aluminum fenestration products have employed a process known as Pour & DeBridge for many years to improve their thermal performance. The process involves filling a channel in the aluminum extrusion with a polyurethane material and then removing the bottom of the channel thereby isolating the aluminum on exterior from the aluminum interior of the glazing system.
Architects, builders and developers of commercial buildings are embracing “green” design— energy efficient best practices for design and construction that significantly reduce or eliminate the negative effects of buildings on the environment and occupants.
