Thermal Crimping is a term used to describe placing an insulating barrier or technically known as a fibred polymide strip between two profile frames.

As a natural process heat will always try to escape from a warmer place to a cooler place. For windows or curtain wall framing this means that the heat of the summer wants to escape from outside into the cooler space within the property, in winter obviously, the heat within wants to escape to the cooler air outside.

Crimping is designed to provide resistance to heat flow, which in turn is going to prove more energy efficient, and cost effective.

NAPCO has a Thermal Crimping facility and is able to provide its customers with thermally broken profiles for architectural use to help in conserving energy, reducing water condensation and noise pollution.
