Engineered as a
Continuous Insulation Solution

SMARTci provides best practice for buildings with a continuous insulation system. Patented GreenGirt, composite metal hybrid (CMH) z-shaped girt, provides a thermal break and mounting platform for cladding applications creating an insulated building envelope. It is a flexible design that works universally with any substrate, insulation, or cladding.

Why Choose SMARTci?
See the difference yourself

When metal is used to connect the exterior components of a building directly to the interior framing, this causes a thermal bridge. This thermal path of least resistance allows heat (or cold) to escape, creating a vulnerability for cold spots and allowing moisture problems. Using materials that eliminate the thermal bridge helps avoid unnecessary heating and cooling costs. Continuous Insulation by SMARTci is the solution. SMARTci was designed to address the inadequacies of other continuous insulation solutions. Its individual parts were created as a simple, complete solution to help you design smarter buildings. Plus, it’s the best CI building assembly to help you earn points toward LEED certification.

Unlike other attachment systems, SMARTci has zero thermal short fasteners. It doesn’t create cold spots for condensation inside your walls. It has a universal attachment design for virtually any cladding, and it can be used over multiple surfaces — not just stud walls. SMARTci was created with one goal in mind: to make buildings more efficient. Specially designed to block off heat gaps that other solutions leave, SMARTci’s thermal efficiency makes it a long-term investment in your building.

What we are all about
SMARTci best practice solutions

SMARTci was created with one goal in mind: To make a more energy-efficient building. SMARTci was specially designed to eliminate thermal gaps that other systems neglect. The SMARTci system consists of the innovative insulated composite GreenGirt and an engineered insulation system. GreenGirt joins the building cladding and insulation to a building structure. It is superior to steel structurally and thermally. GreenGirt provides the same loading capabilities of a Z-girt of equivalent depth. Metal girts and through-fasteners create thermal bridging, GreenGirt eliminates these. GreenGirt is not susceptible to moisture, corrosion, or electrochemical reactions.
