Comfort is closely tied to the concept of happiness. Our sensory responses to elements like temperature and light let us know if we are comfortable, and this affects our happiness. ThermalHEART™ thermally broken aluminium window and door systems help to maintain optimal internal temperatures in commercial buildings, and reduce the need for artificial heating or cooling. The ability to incorporate large expanses of thermally broken aluminium window and door systems with minimal negative impact on efficiency ensures architects have the flexibility to maximise the use of natural light, enhance the connection to the outdoors, and allow building occupants to be aware of the passage of time.
To ensure comfort, buildings in cold climates typically need to be heated. ThermalHEART™ thermally broken aluminium window and door systems can:
- drastically reduce the outside cold from entering the building, making buildings warmer
- help keep the warm air in, reducing heating costs
- eliminate condensation, which often occurs due to the difference in temperature between the interior and exterior environments

Sick Building Syndrome
SBS is an emerging problem in commercial buildings. ThermalHEART™ thermally broken aluminium window and door systems inhibit condensation from forming on the inside of the window frame. By reducing stagnant moisture you alleviate mould formation, and in turn, the respiratory illnesses that follow. ThermalHEART™ window and door systems will eliminate condensation and substantially reduce the risks of sick building syndrome.
In a warm climate, ThermalHEART™ thermally broken aluminium window and door systems:
- act as a buffer against the hot air outside, minimising the transfer of heat into a building
- minimise the loss of cool air from artificial cooling units, reducing the need for cooling
