Thermal bridging solutions

Thermal bridges can be defined as localized areas with higher thermal conductivity than the adjacent areas. A typical thermal bridge in a building envelope would be where a material of high conductivity, such as a structural attachment made of steel or concrete, penetrates the insulation layer. The presence of a thermal bridge in a building assembly would result in: Higher heat transfer through the assembly and colder surface temperatures on the warm side of the assembly.
