The current demands of today’s energy codes and design requirements create constructional dilemmas that developers must overcome with each new project. Building an energy-efficient structure and thermal break are two of the significant difficulties in the commercial building industry. The ASHRAE 90.1 standard (the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) has been a...

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...

When asking the question, what is continuous insulation, consider wrapping yourself in a blanket. The blanket creates a continuous barrier around you that prevents the thermal energy created by your body from flowing directly out into the atmosphere. Continuous insulation, also known as CI, performs the same function for buildings. A CI system is designed...

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 efficiency....

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...
