Thermal Break Materials

Steel to Steel ● Steel to Concrete ● Concrete to Concrete

 Cladding Attachment ● Masonry

Properly designed structural thermal break materials can reduce the heat loss due to thermal bridging by more than 60%.  This varies by the type and location of the thermal bridge. A secondary benefit of using a thermal break is to control material surface temperatures, which is important in avoiding the risk of condensation within the building enclosure.

If you have a technical question about any of our structural thermal break products or thermal bridging solutions in general, please contact us to discuss.

Thermal break blocks reduce heat loss at foundation to wall transitions and roof to parapet intersections.

A high strength thermal break material that reduces heat loss at balcony, canopy, shelf angle, roof post and other structural steel connections where larger forces exist due to moment and dead loads.

 A non-combustible thermal break material that reduces heat loss at cladding clip, sunshade and roof post connections where load transfer forces are smaller and a fire rating is required.

A noncombustible thermal break material that reduces heat loss at roof purlin, wall purlin and fenestration steel frame connections where a fire rating is required.
