Window opening, column base, cladding attachment thermal break. Compacfoam thermal break material reduces conductive heat loss due to thermal bridging. It provides continuous insulation where structural connections would normally create a thermal bridge in the thermal control layer of the building envelope.
This thermal break material conducts heat up to 5,000 times less than aluminum, 1,300 times less than steel and 20
times less than concrete. It is compatible with all field applied air barriers, sealants, and flashings.
In addition to being red list free, this EPS type thermal break material is manufactured with a blowing agent that has an ODP (ozone depleting potential) of zero and a GWP (global warming potential) of five. It is HCFC and CFC free and contains zero HBCD (halogenated fire retardants).
• Fenestration Frames and Openings
• Roof and Wall Purlin Connections
• Curtain wall and Storefront Transitions
• Column Bases
Compacfoam can be used as thermal spacer blocks in metal building wall and roof connections
Compacfoam thermal break at window frame connection within the wall opening. The window frame is fully supported within the opening by Compacfoam thermal break material. In the this position, the frame and glazing are located within the wall framing and the opening is free of thermal bridging.
Compacfoam thermal break at window opening. The window frame is fully supported within the exterior insulation by Compacfoam thermal break material. In the this position, the frame and glazing are located within the thermal envelope and the opening is free of thermal bridging.
Compacfoam can be cut and machined to integrate with window and door sills or thresholds
