This presentation will focus on thermally-efficient methods for masonry cladding supports that meet Passive House, LEED, and Green Building requirements for continuous insulation in above-grade wall assemblies. As the industry continues to shift toward more stringent thermal performance standards, these methods are becoming increasingly more common. Understanding the impacts of conventional shelf angles on energy-efficiency and cost is a critical consideration for your next building envelope design.
- Identify thermal bridging in masonry construction
- Methods for mitigating thermal bridging, including proprietary solutions
- Comparison of conventional shelf angle installation to other methods, including an examination of the following topics:
- Adjustability for construction tolerances
- Thermal performance
- Installation methods
