interior window retrofits
Since 1979, Thermolite has been a leading innovator in supplemental interior window systems. We are a GSA-certified contractor and work with governmental agencies, the U.S. military, commercial renovators, hospitality facilities and historical preservation projects.
The cornerstones of our product all revolve around ENERGY and are represented in the colors of our square logo and are SAVINGS, EFFICIENCY, INTEGRITY AND SECURITY.
Our patented Thermolite Window System is a one-of-a-kind alternative to traditional replacement windows. This 100% customized window system is designed to provide superior protection against bomb blast, audio espionage and hurricanes while reducing noise, sealing the building envelope and preserving historic architectural integrity.
The system is installed quickly, using a process that provides discreet and non-intrusive installation. In fact, many of the systems can be installed during evening or off-peak hours for your convenience and security. Contact us now to see if you qualify for a free supplemental window.
Thermolite's Window System is a patented technology that provides signal defense - blocking audio transmissions for up to 20 miles away. Organizations that need to properly secure locations handling sensitive and/or classified information should consider adding some kind of signal defense capabilities to the Thermolite Window System. A single event of information theft could devastate a business, and we have a solution ready to protect.
Laminated glass with patented technology can be placed on the interior of your building, which will protect any kind of information from theft coming from your company's cell phones, routers or even audio espionage through the glass itself. We can provide an interior system to comply with US DoD policy, infrared and radio frequency emanation Standard, intelligence Community Directive 705.2, Certified TempeST Technical authority (CTTa) specifications.
Thermolite's blast window system is dynamic and actually moves with the blast impulse, so it does not require the heavy steel reinforcement of other blast windows. As a result, our system costs less, is quickly installed and can save your firm and your customer millions of dollars and weeks of time.
Thermolite has launched a revolutionary glazing retrofit system that enables rapid ROI for the commercial energy efficiency retrofit market. RetroWAL is designed to retrofit any curtain wall or storefront application and is ideally suited for historic and landmark projects as it allows preservation of the existing facade. RetroWAL consists of a "Window Attachment Lite" or "WAL" which is easily installed on the inside of the existing glass in as little as 30 minutes and greatly minimizes disruption to building occupants or tenants. The product increases the thermal performance of single pane windows in commercial buildings, improving center of glass R-value from R-1 up to R-3 (U-factor 1 to 0.37) with the basic system. Air infiltration is reduced to between .01 and .04 cfm per square foot of window space. Solar heat gain is controlled by using between glass blinds and/or window film laminated on the opposite side of the low-e coating or the existing building glass.
The RetroWAL patent pending design places composite caps around the frame with thermal breaks reducing the conductivity of the aluminum dramatically. Typical curtain systems in older buildings have R values (resistance to heat loss) of less than R=1. This value is only the same as 1/4" styrofoam. ThermoWAL triples the insulating value of the existing older systems, outperforms many total replacement options at a fraction of the cost. It adds minimal weight to the existing curtain wall structure which is often limits the building options.
Security variations for curtain wall structures have been implemented by Thermolite for years and are now available for the commercial building market.
When SoundWALA is placed behind glazing an existing building, our system has been tested to perform at an STC level of 49. This makes it ideal for offices, conference rooms and apartment / condominium conversions.
Replacing every door and window with ballistic materials can become cost prohibitive and that is why FireWAL was created. Where a storefront and enteryway window replacement can cost perhaps $25,000 per opening and take days to install, our system costs 75% less and installs in hours.
