Thermal Break by Iron Door Works


A thermal barrier that is highly resistant to thermal conductivity. This
significantly lowers the U-value and reduces HVAC costs in areas with hot or cold weather. A thermal break is used to reduce the flow of heat and cold through  the jamb and the whole unit.


To further explain how this thermal break technology works, well first explain why doors and/or other home materials without thermal breaks are not
optimal to maintaining temperatures in a home. There are inefficient things within your home called "thermal bridges" that are more conductive (or poorly
insulating) material. Materials like wood, metal, and concrete allow an easy pathway for cold or heat flow across a barrier. This results in conducting far more cold or heat than the insulation on either side of them.

Simply put, a thermal break creates a barrier between the inside and outside of your doors, preventing conductive thermal energy loss. Thermal break technology extends throughout the metal, protecting the inside of the door from the temperatures outside. It is because the inside and outside surfaces of the door or window are thermally separated that results in an exceptional improvement in insulation.
