The MLP™ system offers important energy-saving enhancements and unchallenged strength for all applications including high-rise and monumental buildings.
The greening of the planet at the turn of the 21st century brought about positive changes in building facades by advancing the performance of daylighting systems. Since the greatest loss of energy is through fenestration, the challenge for window designers is to reduce energy loss by incorporating the best technologies available to achieve performance goals, while maintaining the favourable benefits of natural daylighting.
The MLP™ (mechanical lock profile) technology —is heralded as the greatest advancement for making aluminium fenestration energy efficient in fifty years.
The MLP™ offers a superior set of properties for aluminium fenestration by incorporating a unique encapsulated element within a structural insulating polyurethane thermal barrier.
MLP™ achieves three important material and energy criterion for owners of LEED New Construction and Major Renovation* projects:
* Low U Values
* Higher shear strength
* Lower metal content
Moreover, a lower metal content in the design is economical as it reduces the energy required to produce architectural windows, while the sustainable aluminium material is completely recyclable.
The new MLP™ has the highest shear of all thermal barrier systems for aluminium architectural products and is designed with a high temperature-resistant polyurethane polymer formulation, a wider cavity to improve thermal performance with a lower U-factor in most fenestration products.
