Model Energy Codes adopted across the U.S. are directing buildings to achieve more efficient performance.

Whether trying to keep the warmth inside in cold climates or trying to keep the heat outside in warm climates – Linetec helps optimize aluminum architectural manufacturers’ systems to meet thermal requirements in all climate zones.

 

Thermal Barriers

Linetec enhances the thermal performance of architectural metal products, such as window, skylight, curtainwall, storefront and entrance systems.

Using a thermal barrier system improves performance by separating the aluminum profile into two parts, while maintaining the structural and long-term durability of the unit. The two methods for doing this are:

While both methods achieve high thermal performance, thermal strut also simplifies dual finishing, where the interior and exterior surfaces may be finished in different colors and formulations.

 

Curves and Corners

Installing the thermal barrier in the metal after it has been formed helps minimize stress on the thermal barrier and ensures performance as specified.

Linetec performs all these services in the proper order, to industry-leading quality assurance standards, and in the same location to retain the full warranty.
