What is a thermal break, and a thermal breakaway door?

In short, a thermal break is a type of material that has low thermal conductivity and which can be added into a product at the assembly stage. Capable of successfully stopping heat from being transferred from a greater source, to a lesser one, windows and doors can be constructed with thermal breaks in them to limit (or eliminate entirely) the transfer of heat or cold, and to provide additional insulation. Acting almost as a circuit breaker, a thermal breakaway door cuts off the inside from the outside, and can have a hugely positive impact on energy efficiency.

Thermal break technology

Featuring a reinforced polyamide bar between the interior and exterior of an aluminum door, thermal break technology creates an insulated barrier within the door and conducts heat, cold and sound up to a thousand times more slowly than regular, or standard aluminum; this is explained in further detail below:

In winter months we allow the cold to permeate; if you touch a door that has no thermal break, the metal frame surface will be warm, even on the side that faces the exterior of the building

In the summer months, we allow the heat to come in; as above, the surface of the metal door frame will be warm due to the external temperature

Thermal breakaway doors can be recognized by a certain system involving the use of a plastic polymer that's capable of stopping the conduction of temperature between the two metal sides (internal and external) of the profile.
