    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'm very interested in how this works! Please report back. I could easily do this.

    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.

    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.

    Ya, it seems like their prices have come down even more (at least on the larger sizes)
    The 550mm x 1100mm window that I bought in September of this year for $564, is now only $418, great price!
