Building Regulation Advice
Smart Architectural Aluminium are committed to offering products that are designed to meet the Building Regulations of today and beyond.
By using the latest thermal break technology, Smart products are exceedingly energy efficient and compliant with the latest Building Regualtions. Polyamide thermal breaks are specially designed to be highly efficient insulating material. The polyamide is inserted in between the inner and outer skins of aluminum creating a thermal barrier, keeping the warmth in whilst still maintaining the excellent strength and duability properties of Aluminum. Because the Polyamide is very strong and because it can be extruded, this enables very large thermal breaks to be created exactly to our specifications. By combining the benefits of these two materials, polyamide and aluminium, this enables Smarts to creating some of the most advanced energy efficient windows.
