Why use aluminium insert over timber?
For home owners looking to retro fit double glaze their existing timber windows you would be looking at a 6-8mm spacer between the glass. The benefit is minimal compared to aluminium where the glazing spacer starts at 12mm, larger spacers are available for different. While timber is thermally better than standard aluminium this is not the case when it comes to thermal break joinery. They perform very similar. Aluminium has the advantage of proper rubber seals unlike cheaper timber joinery and it does not warp in the weather like timber can.
