Spectus Window Systems has launched a brand new range of thermal inserts, designed to improve thermal performance and help customers fabricate even more energy efficient windows and doors.
For use across the Spectus Elite 70 range, the inserts are manufactured from 100% recycled content and are said to be a cost-effective way of delivering better insulation. Internal webs take the number of insulating chambers from five to eight, helping fabricators achieve higher Window Energy Ratings and U-values.
Reportedly lightweight and easy to use, cut and handle, the inserts have receptors which improve screw retention and help with accurate hardware positioning. Working alongside steel or aluminium reinforcements, they are said to provide significant thermal benefits without affecting the strength of the window.
Commenting on the new development, Spectus brand manager, Carmen Velilla, said:
“We were already doing our bit with multi-chambered frames but we were looking for a simple, cost-effective way to achieve even better thermal performance without compromising the structural integrity of our frames. Our new inserts do just that.
“The difference may be on the inside but this advancement is still a valuable selling tool for our customers. Once completed, the homeowner won’t know about the inserts but they’ll be sure to know about the benefits; a more efficient, better insulated home!”
