Thermal Barrier Resists Heat and Cold Transfer

In the cold of winter, beautiful, durable West-Prime™ Thermal Aluminum windows help keep the cold outside, while the inside stays cozy and warm. In the heat of summer, the interior stays cooler and more comfortable. That's because of the unique thermal efficiency of our West-Prime™ Thermal Windows ... thermal efficiency that's due to our thermal barrier which helps to block the transfer of heat and cold. The interior space stays at the chosen temperature longer ... with less work from the heating and cooling system.
Cold transferThis photo clearly shows the importance of the thermal barrier. We set our West-Prime™ Thermal Window frame and an ordinary aluminum window frame on extremely cold dry ice to illustrate how cold is transferred through the frame.
Notice that the ordinary aluminum window frame, shown on the left, is completely covered with frost. Now look at the West-Prime™ Thermal Window frame on the right. Our thermal barrier resists the transfer of cold from the outside to the inside of the frame. And, of course, the same thermal barrier slows the transfer of heat in summer.

West-Prime™ Thermal windows are available in white, tan and bronze finishes to complement any style of architecture.

Window sashes tilt into the room for fast, easy cleaning ... or can be completely removed, if desired.  Cleaning is likely to be the only maintenance required, and WestPrime™ Thermal Windows make that a snap.
