Thermal Heart Technology
page 1 of 2   


World-leading technology is being used by AWS to ensure that its new Designer Series Thermal Heart range of windows and doors has the strength to perform in the toughest environments.

A state of the art thermal break machine from the Aluro company, in Belgium, inserts the polyamide nylon strip and rolls the three components - aluminium interior, exterior and thermal strip - tightly together in one rigid profile.


The Aluroller, as the 11-metre-long machine is called, was chosen ahead of alternative technologies, because the combining process retains the components in their straight orientation rather than rolling them together through a rolling head with the possibility of unwanted profile bending.

A Versatile Range

A comprehensive suite of Designer Series Thermal Heart products is offered – awning, casement, and bi-fold windows, hinged and bi-fold doors. Designer Series Thermal Heart not only offers excellent suitability for thermal performance but is capable of impressive product sizes allowing the large heights and spans sought by many designers and homeowners to be achieved (doors are suitable to heights of 2.4m).

Wide Applicabilty

Windows and doors are based on a large 44mm glazing platform making them suitable for a wide range of residential and architectural glass applications. While the standard double glazed unit offered is 24mm thick.

Double Glazing Synergy

When combined with double-glazing, our Designer Series Thermal Heart windows and doors meet contemporary aspirations for energy conservation and comfortable interior temperatures. In terms of thermal efficiency, this new product range rates 32% better than standard double glazed windows and doors.


Dual Colour Option

The unique thermal insulator jointing method allows a different choice of colour to compliment both internal and external colour palettes resulting in one colour on the outside and another on the inside.

Designer Series Thermal Heart profiles feature a glass fibre-reinforced nylon thermal break for enhanced insulation of the aluminium. These are indicated by the red circles.
