Structural Thermal Breaks To Reduce Thermal Bridging
We have been providing thermal bridging solutions for Architects, Engineers and Contractors for over 10 years. Our goal is to assist you in designing building envelope details that reduce heat loss due to thermal bridging.
With our partners we have over 60 years of combined experience with thermal bridging and as a result, we offer a range of proven structural thermal break materials to help you meet or exceed energy code requirements.
Need help? We are the design standard for solutions to thermal bridging. 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.
