Structural Thermal Breaks To Prevent Thermal Bridging
Thermal Bridging Solutions for Architects, Engineers and Contractors. We help you improve building envelope details to reduce energy loss due to thermal bridging. Our group has over 60 years of combined experience with thermal bridging and as a result, we have developed a range of structural thermal break materials that minimize heat loss and help you meet or exceed energy code requirements.
We are the design standard for solutions to thermal bridging. Need help? Connect with us for recommendations on which thermal break material to use for your transition and interface details.
Thermal Bridging Related Facts
• Along with poor air barriers, thermal bridging has been recognized as a significant contributor to energy loss through the building envelope.
• A wall assembly’s R value can be reduced by as much as half due to thermal bridging.
• The impact of many thermal bridging sources on the thermal envelope is not yet fully addressed in national energy codes.
• Twenty percent of states either have not adopted an energy code or the state code predates ASHRAE 2007 requirements.
