What is Thermal / 'Cold' Bridging?
A thermal bridge (or ‘cold brige’) is a part or area of the construction of the building which significantly transfers heat rapidly to the outside. These usually consist of dense materials such as a concrete sill or solid concrete threshold block. When the total number of these thermal bridges are added up over a project, the heat loss can be very significant, up to 30% of the total heat loss.
Our thermal bridging window and door threshold products when installed will eliminate these cold bridges ensuring that the insulation line is continuous with no weak areas thus helping in the overall energy saving measures in the constuction of your home.
