Introducing ThermalHeart+®

Play Video

Did you know 35-50% of a home’s heat is lost from its windows and doors?

Introducing ThermalHeart+®, a range of code-meeting, industry-leading, thermally efficient products designed and made right here in New Zealand for exactly how we live.

Contact us to discuss your options, or visit the website to learn more about the ThermalHeart+® range.

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).

Discover Centrafix™

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.

If thermal efficiency is among your top priorities, Klima® is a smart bet

Based on a premium series from Europe by Kömmerling and designed and manufactured in New Zealand to suit Kiwi conditions, Klima® is the ultimate energy-efficient window and door solution. From November 2023, the minimum insulation requirements for cooler climate zones increased to the final performance requirements, as outlined in the H1 Clause of the New Zealand Building Code. Klima® exceeds the highest standard for each zone, so you can feel confident knowing you’re ahead of the game.

Key features of Klima® include:

  • A maximum 6 energy stars under WEERS (Window Energy Efficiency Rating System) when used with high performance glazing
  • State-of-the-art multi chamber design
  • Seamless welded corners for extra strength
  • Super thick profiles for maximum thermal insulation, high quality weather resistance, and strength in high wind zones
  • Available in a standard range of windows and doors, with the exception of a bi-fold format
  • Aligns with standard industry installation practices for ease of installation
Why choose Klima®?
  • Thermal efficiency – a thermally efficient home can be cheaper to warm compared to one built to code
  • Healthier Home – an affordable investment to create a healthy home that is warm, comfortable, and dry
  • Noise Reduction – Klima® offers excellent levels of noise reduction
  • Durability – thanks to the highly durable nature of uPVC, Klima® shows no sign of degrading or discolouring

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®.
