The Pacific52™ & Pacific60™ Thermal systems are the perfect solution for a more comfortable, warmer and drier home.
New Zealanders now enjoy the benefits of double glazing when renovating an existing dwelling or constructing a new home. Double glazing allows the sun’s heat to pass through a window and be retained within the house thereby improving the comfort levels of the home.
Pacific52™ Thermal uses a ‘Polyamide Strip’ to extend the benefits of double glazing to the frames of your windows and doors. A thermal break within the frame is created by joining two pieces of aluminium together using a 16mm polyamide strip crimped to each side of the frame. The thermal barrier formed by the polyamide strip stops the transference of heat from the front of the frame to the back of the frame, thus stopping heat from passing into (or leaving) your house. As a result, your home is more comfortable and requires less energy to heat.
As you’d expect, sleek contemporary lines delineate the Pacific52™ Thermal System, while innovative features like the use of flat sill technology add aesthetic practicality allowing form and function to go hand in hand.
The Pacific52™ Thermal system can add an additional 25% of heat retention to what double glazing alone can provide. This is achieved through a thermally broken frame, unlike standard aluminium joinery which is highly conductive the frame has a thermal barrier which prevents heat transfer and considerably reduces the chance of condensation, thus keeping the inside of your home warmer, drier and more comfortable.

This is achieved through a thermally broken frame, unlike standard aluminium joinery which is highly conductive the frame has a nylon thermal barrier which prevents heat transfer and considerably reduces the chance of condensation, thus keeping the inside of your home warmer, drier and more comfortable.
*The Pacific52™ Thermal system, when combined with higher performing glass (double glazed IGU with Argon gas and a Low E coating) can add up to 50% more thermal efficiency than standard double glazing alone.
Aesthetic appeal, functionality, increased glazing capacity and strength of internal components means the Pacific52™ & Pacific60™ systems are perfect for taking the next step up for your aluminium joinery.
All products within the Pacific52™ range allow for double glazed insulated units up to 40mm and for Pacific60™, triple glazed units up to 48mm thickness, a must for larger format thermal windows and doors. Modern and sleek flat faced frame profiles are available across all product types with window sashes available in flush and flanged variants. Flat faced frames seamlessly integrate with our Southern41™ Thermal system, where required.
Door unit sizes for the Pacific52™ System are can cater for doors up to 2.4m* high for hinged and bifold doors, weighing up to 80kgs and up to 2.7m* high for sliding panels, these weighing up to 200kg, both offer wide glass openings for impressive uninterrupted views and access.
The Pacific52™ Thermal system can accommodate almost any combination of window and door configuration, while the framing itself has a sleek square profile, not rounded, to suit modern architectural aesthetics. Innovative products such as the Foldback™ Bifold, the iconic Ranchslider™, functional Levelstep™, and the premium Euroslider™ are all available within the system.
Suitable across multiple market segments; Mid-Level Residential to High End Architectural homes, Multi-residential, Light Commercial Applications, School Builds, Exposed Architectural Homes and A&A (Additions and Alterations).
Ability to use Pacific52™ Thermal and Southern41™ Thermal systems on the same build project, whilst maintaining a consistent appearance and thermal performance.
Wide range of offerings across the residential ranges such as:
Structural integrity allows a product to maintain its original performance throughout its life. This is particularly important in extreme climatic conditions, such as very high or extra high winds. Pacific52™ & Pacific60™ Thermal systems have a 2500pa ultimate wind pressure performance.
Shear resistance measures the product’s ability to maintain its composite structure when force is applied. Pacific52™ & Pacific60™ Thermal has an elongation (8%), which reflects structural strength through its ability to bend without breaking.
As this table shows, Pacific52™ & Pacific60™ Thermal has strength implications in its ability to maintain the composite structure.
