    ICRI-Metro New York presents a Webinar on "Thermally-Broken" Shelf Angles


    We invite you to join us via Zoom on Thursday, July 9th at 11:00 AM for a presentation on Thermally-Broken Shelf Angles with Adam Kimble of FERO Corporation. 

    The event will be FREE for all ICRI-MNY chapter members, and $10 for non-members. One AIA Learning Unit will be awarded.

    Requirements for continuous insulation in above-grade wall assemblies are becoming more common to meet energy codes and energy efficiency programs that continue to shift the industry toward more stringent thermal performance standards. Continuous insulation is an effective way of achieving high R-value walls; however, thermally inefficient materials, such as fac?ade attachments, penetrate the building envelope causing thermal bridging significantly degrading the insulation’s thermal performance. Heavy masonry veneer claddings require a robust structural attachment system to transfer cladding loads back to the primary structure. To resist the imposed forces masonry veneer claddings are traditionally connected by a combination of intermittent anchors and shelf angle to the building structure. While supporting the imposed forces structural penetrations such as these reduce the effective R-value of the wall assembly. This presentation will focus on thermally efficient methods for masonry cladding supports.


    A link to join the meeting will be sent out to all who have registered on the morning of the event. We hope you'll join us then!
