Presented by FERO
This presentation will focus on thermally-efficient methods for masonry cladding supports that promote the Passive House Building Standard. Green building requirements for continuous insulation in above-grade wall assemblies 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.
