With the increasing drive for thermal efficiency and stricter regulatory requirements, the adoption of an industry-wide approach to new building methods and the development of materials designed to minimise heat loss is extremely important. It is estimated that up to 35% of a building’s heat loss could be attributed to the existence of thermal bridges, a significant amount, and therefore a key consideration in the drive to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
Where the building insulation envelope is penetrated by steel work, ‘Cold bridging’ is a recognised problem in any location. While bespoke custom made thermal break connections offer excellent performance they are often cumbersome to fit and more often cost prohibitive especially on large section connections.
Here, Armadillo present the Armatherm™ solution which offers a high thermal resistance providing excellent cold break performance. The advantage of the bolt through design is ease of installation, fast production and simplicity of the connection detail.
