Graham Offers a Choice in Thermal Break Systems

San Diego, CA - Graham Architectural Products now offers customers a choice in thermal-break insulation systems for its aluminum window and door systems:

o Pour-and-debridge system, a time-tested performer

o New glass-reinforced nylon fiber thermal break

The new glass-reinforced nylon option offers both paint savings and two-tone flexibility. A combination of paint and anodizing is possible. Paint savings can be realized by applying Kynar® on the exterior frame and less-costly baked enamel on the interior.

Nylon fiber thermal break also offers jamb depth versatility. For example, by increasing the amount of glass-reinforced nylon used, customers can increase the jamb depth of a 1-3/4" insulating system to 2" - using the same aluminum extrusion.

Since the nylon fiber material has a coefficient of thermal expansion, very similar to that of aluminum, the bond between the thermal break and the aluminum extrusions enjoy mechanical integrity through a wide range of temperature fluctuations.

Graham offers important choices in support of its mission to make the best windows for each customer's needs and desires.

Founded in 1972 and located in York, Pennsylvania, Graham Architectural Products manufactures AAMA-rated architectural aluminum and fiberglass heavy commercial windows and terrace doors. For more information, go to or call 800-755-6274.
