To the Core

Azon offers its Azo-Core high-density foam thermal barrier for aluminum framing. According to the company, this was first introduced in the United Kingdom with energy performance meeting the standard for Passive House (Passivhaus) in Europe. Thermal results of 0.25 U-Value with double low-E insulating glass and 0.14 with high performance triple glazing are achieved through actual testing. In addition to high thermal performance, Azo-Core maintains the structural aspects of the aluminum fenestration product, according to the company.

BoxBolt Earns Seismic Approval

Galvanized for corrosion resistance, BoxBolt is made for use with rectangular, square or round tube sections and offers what the company calls a guaranteed Safe Working Load with proper torque. BoxBolt, which can be installed with hand tools, also helps eliminate the need for access to both sides of the connection and requires only a clearance hole to be drilled to suit its outside diameter. The holes can be drilled off-site for new projects or onsite for retrofit.
