ThermalHeart+®️ components

The ThermalHEART® polyamide barrier insulates the frame of the window system, separating warm and cold areas. Using clean, modern lines, these frames provide high performance in extreme weather conditions. ThermalHEART® frames deliver almost double the thermal performance of standard aluminium windows and doors1

Explore ranges

The ATS-Architectural Thermal Spacer® reduces the transfer of hot and cold temperatures. Argon gas creates an additional barrier to heat loss and improves insulation. Solux-E® is a low emissivity (Low-E) coating that reduces heat loss in winter and over-heating in summer. It protects your home's interior while providing a similar clarity to clear glass.

Explore state-of-the-art glass

The Centrafix™ installation method recesses the joinery into the building wall, aligning the insulation elements - wall, window frame, glazing – to prevent cold air from circulating around the frame. This New Zealand designed innovation increases the thermal performance in your home by over 20%2 (see here for technical details).

1 Comparison figures are based on complete thermal modelling of an average house lot of Metro Series ThermalHEART® products with The AGP System® double glazing using the WEERS modelling methodology. The benchmark figures were calculated by modelling the same average house lot of products using the equivalent non-thermally broken products glazed with standard double glazing. A “standard aluminium window or door” refers to a non-thermally broken aluminium frame with standard double glazing.

Centrafix™ comparison figures are based on complete thermal modelling of an average house lot of products installed in 90mm timber framing. The standard installation benchmark was calculated by modelling the same house lot of comparable products using a typical E2/AS1 cavity construction installation on 90mm timber framing.

Our entrance door range

A good entrance door does more than just provide access; it makes a statement. You can make any statement you like with our door ranges, and a multitude of colours to choose from. Our entrance doors are built to last with low maintenance, good acoustic performance, and enhanced stability, security and thermal efficiency.

All doors can be supplied in dual colour panels, allowing you to match the interior and exterior colour schemes more seamlessly.  

Latitude

   

The Latitude entrance doors feature 100mm tongue and groove planks set within an attractive border of strong rails and stiles. These planks can run in either a vertical or horizontal direction. Glass inserts can also be incorporated (double glazing only), with a clean, flat-faced contemporary moulding as standard. The Latitude is available in a wide range of designs.

These aluminium entrance doors are filled with high-density polystyrene for thermal efficiency and sound dampening. This range is available in dual colours so you can select different colours for the interior and exterior facings. 

Please note: dark colours may not be suitable for doors that are exposed to prolonged direct sunlight.

Plasma

   

When a clean, smooth architectural look is desired, the Plasma entrance door is the way to go. The most popular designs in this range feature a flush, flat sheet of aluminium on each side, that's powdercoated to the colour of your choice, or anodised from the selection of colours. You can include horizontal negative detail lines, tongue and groove or glass inserts for a truly personalised front door.

These aluminium entrance doors are filled with high-density polystyrene for thermal efficiency and sound dampening. The Plasma range is available in dual colours so you can match your interior and exterior colour schemes.

Axis

   

Full length, vertical tongue and groove planks offer a clean, continuous look with real impact. The Axis entrance door can be made up to 2.6 metres high, depending on site exposure. Double glazed glass inserts can be set within the door and matching sidelight options are also available.

Anodising

Anodised finishing is a highly popular choice for architectural projects, and is a durable and colour fast technology that offers an alternative to powdercoating. 

As for colours and film thicknesses, there are plenty of options: Silver, in 12 and 25 microns. Bronze in light, medium or dark, 12 and 25 microns. Black, 25 microns only. Champagne, in 25 microns only. 

For properties in coastal, industrial or other corrosive environments, 25 microns is recommended, and may even be required to qualify for a warranty. (Note: the anodised coating has a 10-year warranty for 12 micron anodising, and 20 years for 25 microns.)

Note: when you are choosing your aluminium joinery colour, always assess the colour in natural light using an aluminium colour swatch. We are able to provide you with the colour swatch samples upon request. 
Anodising is unavailable in Residential ThermalHEART®.
