About this Course
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 projects targeted R – Value.

Prerequisite Knowledge:
Building Envelope Design and Construction

Learning Objective 1:
In this presentation you will be able to understand how the use of thermal clips will impact thermal bridging on various exterior wall assembly applications.

Learning Objective 2:
Identify types of clips currently on the market.

Learning Objective 3:
Learn how to calculate the number of clips required on your project by identifying structural forces involved to determine clip spacing.

Learning Objective 4:
Gain insight on how combustion testing and local fire codes apply to thermal clips.

Learning Objective 5:
Acquire a new ability to effectively detail thermal clips on architectural drawings.
