Recycled, light load thermal break pad.

Features and benefits:

  • Provides an economical and effective solution to Part L of the Building Regulations.
  • Has twice the compressive strength than standard neoprene and nitrile materials.
  • Provides better thermal insulation than vinyl and plastics.
  • Reduces corrosion between dissimilar metal elements.
  • Made from recycled materials, helping to achieve LEED and BREEAM credits.
  • Used to prevent thermal bridging and improve energy efficiency.
  • Wide range of thicknesses available.

Applications:

Steel-to-concrete, light steel or metal cladding connections where the load is negligible or uniformly distributed. Typical applications include:

  • Parapets, soffits and roof to wall transitions.
  • Steel stud exterior walls.
  • Facades.
  • Masonry ties.
  • Concrete and precast joints.
  • Metal building framing to concrete and pre-cast connections.
  • Cladding attached support clips for Z-girts, C-channels and Hat channels used in curtain walls, rain screens, metal wall panels, veneer walls and louvres.

Not for use with structural or moment connections.

Standard product features

Material:

Recycled rubber with synthetic fibre reinforcement.

Technical characteristics:
