In today’s world, more owners and developers are focused on energy efficiency than ever before. Continuous insulation is a great alternative to traditional building materials to achieve energy efficiency. Insulation within your building is the first place you should take a closer look when looking at your building’s thermal efficiency. Utilizing continuous insulation on your...

In the commercial building industry, z-girts have been used for centuries. Applications include providing lateral support, resisting wind loads, and connecting structural framing to cladding. Due to the increasing concern for thermal efficiency along side advancements in technology and design, we have seen several changes to the materials used in z-shaped girts. In addition to...

Advanced Architectural Products (A2P) the original creator of GreenGirt®,has released a new, next generation product. This new product is called the GreenGirt® Adjustable. The original GreenGirt® product is a patented composite metal hybrid (CMH) simple z girt system. GreenGirt® is utilized in A2P’s SMARTci™ continuous insulation systems to provide a best practice solution to energy...

Composite Metal Hybrid (CMH) vs Generic Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP): Engineering Study Performance of composite metal hybrid (CMH) and fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite substructure materials for exterior cladding attachment has greatly improved over the last several years. High performance composite metal hybrid (CMH) and, more recently, generic fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) z-girts are currently...

Joinery methods of z shaped girts can play a major role in the structural integrity of a building. There are several different joinery methods that can be used with advantages and disadvantages to all. Sub-framing girts are typically manufactured in limited lengths, such as 8′ for example. This is necessary for installation purposes. One person...

Traditionally, z-girt material was made out of metal, but innovation in the building materials and continuous insulation industries have created z-girt material out of thermoset pultruded composite material and composite metal hybrid (CMH) material. In composite metal hybrid (CMH), the properties and characteristics of metal and thermoset pultrusion composite are combined into one product. Z...
