Thermal Breaks in Cladding Support Attachment Assemblies!

Reaching towards Net Zero energy ready buildings is becoming a popular topic in todays climate changing world. Energy efficiency has expanded towards exterior wall assemblies where effects of thermal bridging are considered and thermally broken sub-framing systems are becoming the new norm. This course will identify and compare various cladding attachment methods on the market. Learn how to determine the appropriate clip for your project and how to compare effective thermal resistance required to achieve a projects targeted R-Value.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how the use of thermal clips will impact thermal bridging on various exterior wall assembly applications.
  2. Identify types of clips currently on the market.
  3. Learn how to calculate the number of clips required for your project by identifying structural forces involved to determine clip spacing.
  4. Gain insight on how the NFPA 285 fire code applies to thermal clips.
