Adam Kimble, Sales Director with Michael Ross, Senior Technical Advisor moderating Q&A (bios below)
This presentation will focus on thermally-efficient methods for masonry cladding supports that promote the Passive House Building Standard, LEED and Green Building requirements for continuous insulation in above-grade wall assemblies that are becoming more common to continue to shift the industry toward more stringent thermal performance standards. Understanding the impacts of conventional shelf angles on energy-efficiency and cost is a critical consideration for your next building envelope design.
- What is an Energy Efficient Shelf Angle Design?
- Understanding issues with Conventional Shelf Angle Design: (1) Thermal Bridging (2) Difficult Installation (3) Costs.
- Integrating Thermally-Broken Shelf Angles provide an energy efficient, adjustable, customizable and cost-effective connection solution for your wall assembly.
- Unparalleled wall-assembly performance can be achieved by incorporating Thermal Ties or Connectors.
