Thermal bridging solutions
Designing an effective thermal envelope
- Importance of the thermal envelope: In addition to reducing heat loss, which results in long term savings in energy bills, reducing the amount of thermal bridges can also reduce construction costs.
- Designing for continuity of the thermal envelope: Designing building fabric means meeting a variety of functional requirements and areas of performance, however these objective can often get in the way of each other making the challenge of reducing thermal bridges even more complex.
- Getting it right: FOAMGLAS® thermal bridging solutions: Manufactured from cellular glass insulation, PERINSUL HL is a thermal bridging solution with the compressive strength to bear the structural loads of up to three storeys.
