For exterior insulated steel stud assemblies, the ISO Clip System provides an effective means of reducing
thermal bridging in exterior façade systems compared to traditional continuous girt systems. The ISO
Clip System can be used to meet many of the demanding thermal requirements from current energy
codes and standards in Canada. The U- and R-values provided by this summary can be used for
compliance calculations for any of the compliance paths set forth in ASHRAE 90.1, NECB or SB-10
thermal bridging. For steel stud assemblies, the clips are fastened through the exterior sheathing
directly to the steel studs using self-drilling screws. An analysis for a split insulated steel stud assembly, a
split insulated wood frame assembly, and a concrete block wall have also been conducted.
