    Sorry for my bad choice of words.
    I understood just fine, I just think you would need a lot more insulation than you could paint on. The aluminum easily transfers heat in/out.

    Here's my plan to deal with that a little bit. The windows are made to fit a wall that's 50 mm which is approximately 1.9 inches, my walls are going to be thicker than that so I'll get longer bolts the exterior ring and the interior ring won't touch so there will be no bridging of metals other than the bolts and I'll fill the gap between with a silicone or other sealant material. I know this doesn't solve the problem but I think it will make it a fair amount better.

    I was day dreaming about two sets of Motion single pane in each window hole for a composite panel (thick panels)
    You would end up with double pane and the frames would not touch. As mentioned in the example above , the screws would be the only heat bridge.
    Only the outer window would have screens. Would be a little extra work to open as you would have to unlock and slide two separate panes to get ventilation.

I'm going with 5 big windows and a roof hatch and want them to open out, my build is going to go around the world and I'm going to live it in it for many years. Seems that my only real options are Outbound and EuroVision, I love the outbound but the quote with shipping is over ten grand and the quote for Euro is $2,800. My build is pretty high end but I'm doing all the work and getting the best deal I can on all the parts. Big pluses on the outbound are build quality, composite frame to reduce heat transfer, and glass. Big negatives on euro are alu frame heat transfer, acrylic, and they don't open to 90 degrees only 60. I know this is a pretty personal decision but what do you all say?
    Hi can you send me a pm I maybe able to help you with your windows.

    Tell us why you went with Eurovision acrylic vs Outbound glass.

    I wanted glass windows but a quote on my order for the outbound window's was over 10,000 dollars and a quote for a little bit larger windows for Euroversion was 3000. I like the fiberglass frame on the outbound but the outside and inside of the Eurovision Windows will not be touching and I'll have some insulation in between, not quite as good but an acceptable compromise for the price. I don't like that the Eurovision don't open up to 90 but I have some ideas on how to deal with that and Dave from Tern Overland is helping me out with that. Overall after watching lots of videos and talking to quite a few people I think the quality is there with the Eurovision Windows and blinds, I'll let you know when I get them but it won't be until mid January.
