SKU: P410
£40.00

This publication provides an introduction to thermal bridging, an explanation of the consequences of thermal bridging and describes how these effects are considered and quantified in the UK Building Regulations. Different methods for minimising thermal bridges in hot-rolled structural steel frames are described and examples are used to demonstrate the different methods. The publication includes results from thermal analysis models for common construction details used in hot-rolled structural steel frames. Alternative solutions for balcony attachments with minimised thermal bridging are also presented.

Buildings account for nearly half of the UK's total carbon emissions and are therefore targeted for significant improvement by regulations. In response to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and the UK Climate Change Act 2008, national regulations are requiring ever more energy efficient builidngs.

SCI publication P411 is a related publication focusing on thermal bridging in light steel framing and modular construction.

The preparation of this publication was funded by Schock Ltd.; their funding is gratefully acknowledged.
