Thermal break window sills

An efficient window loses part of its insulating properties when incorrectly installed. In order to avoid this drawback, Aldena has developed an innovative solution. The window should not be considered as an independent element, but it must be designed according to the wall it will be installed in.

The system proposed by Aldena lies in cutting the window sills and introducing a highly-insulating thermal break.

Isotherms highlight the performance increase. Wall temperature under the window rises to 17,5 °C. Improved insulation, as well as being desirable for energy efficiency, reduces the chances of mildew caused by condensation.
