Linetec

Linetec

Linetec offers thermal improvement services for curved and radial finished aluminum extrusions for window, skylight, curtainwall, storefront and entrance systems. They include a full pour-and-debridge of radius material (structural and non-structural) and a crimped thermal strut system. Stress on the thermal barrier is minimized by installing it in the metal after it is curved. Performance and warranties are maintained when the extrusions are finished after curving.
