Thermal Break

OMEGA Thermal Shopfront was designed to answer the increasing need for energy efficiency in commercial and residential joinery.  The excellent thermal performance of the Thermal Shopfront is just the beginning of the suites status as a great choice for the environment.

OMEGA Thermal Shopfront is manufactured from material sourced from McKechnie Aluminium, claiming the highest level of recycled metal content in New Zealand. The Thermal Shopfront can carry very large double glazing units, this is facilitated by its glazing pocket dimension, 40mm, allowing the suite to easily handle a 34mm glass unit.

The system was designed for shopfront work, so can easily integrate a door or window sash.

  • 100mm centrally glazed
  • Designed for double glazing up to 34mm in thickness
  • 52mm awning window sashes
  • 56mm thermal door sashes
  • Cast aluminium hinges for strength
  • Thermally Broken Seismic frames available

How Thermal Break works:

The OMEGA Thermal Break delivers better performance day after day. A “Thermal Break” is on the outside causing an obstruction to the heat or cold escaping or entering your home, meaning higher thermal performance and reducing the cost of heating and cooling.

An ENERGY STAR qualified window is a step up in performance over generic aluminium framed double glazing.

These can have additional features of frames with Thermal Breaks, low-E glass panes, Argon gas filled and or including plastic or Thermal spacers in the insulated glass units.

OMEGA is also produced to international quality measurement standard ISO 14001, and has Diamond certified status Enviromark. OMEGA’s products are tested to New Zealand Standards in their test booth which is independently accredited by IANZ.
