Aluminum carpentry systems are made up of profiles, materials supported by them, and different accessories that, together with the hardware, are developed to facilitate the manufacture and installation of enclosures that provide extensive construction possibilities.
The choice of one system or another depends on the level of quality required, the dimensions of the enclosure, the type of enclosure required, as to its greater or lesser integration with the resistant structure, and the type of opening required in the final product .
It is essential that the fitting to be installed in conjunction with the profiles, is the optimum for the carpentry system in question; In this way, the set of profiles plus hardware will bring the finished product its own features.
The combination of different systems, together with the multiplicity of aesthetic possibilities, allows the realization of "a la carte" enclosures, obtaining the desired interior aesthetics, and the exterior unified according to the urban norms or particular ordinances of both aesthetic and technical requirements .
In the whole of the façade of a building, the weak point in the preservation of comfortable environmental conditions, is the set of walls, which separate the interior from the outside.
For this, the solutions with breakage of thermal bridge in enclosures, provide results of isolation to the cold, the heat, the wind and the noise exceptional.
In the case of aluminum carpentry systems, this breakage is obtained by including a non-conductive element, of rigidity similar to that of aluminum, which isolates the external components of the internal ones in the enclosure, thus breaking the thermal bridge, without To diminish the qualities proper to it.
The solutions in break of thermal bridge allow the compliance of the building code even in adverse conditions.
In addition, the low coefficient of thermal transmission of these systems allows that the enclosures are fundamental elements in the energy saving, up to 40% of the loss by the window, and therefore in the reduction of CO2 emissions.
They also produce discontinuity in the transmission of temperature between the interior and exterior of the passenger compartment, thus avoiding thermal loss and excessive energy consumption.
With the break of the thermal bridge we can raise the surface temperature of the inner profile, minimizing the risk of surface dew or interstitial condensation in the glass.
In this way, aluminum enclosures are increasingly used, due to its indisputable advantages in terms of maintaining the interior temperature and taking care of the environment.
