We´re going on a Mid-Term Break from Saturday, 29.10.2022 until Sunday, 06.11.2022. Last orders before the break will be processed on Friday, 28.10.2022, whilst normal processing starts again on Monday, 07.11.2022. Thanks for your understanding.
The prevention of thermal breaks when retrofitting doors and windows is important, to comply with nZEB regulations and retain the energy efficiency of the thermal building envelope. Triotherm thermal support brackets are the ideal solution to prevent thermal bridging as they simplify thermal break strategies for retrofit as well.
One of the most complicated details for houses with pre-cast floor slabs is to create the air tightness barrier for hollow core slabs. We want to point out the difficulties and advise how to get the problem sorted.
Triotherm thermal brackets are made to transfer the weight of all type of windows and doors permanently into the building structure, without creating a thermal bridge.
It´s every winter the same story again - the lower the temperatures, the less qualified work for air tightness you can do in new builds if they´re not heated.
Due to the current restrictions and to prevent any further spread of the Corona virus, we decided to cancel all scripted air tightness trainings for at least the next 4 weeks.
Preparation is the key when it comes to the successfull window taping for air tightness. Unfortunately the most windows in Ireland will be installed as seen on the photo. No matter what brand you use for your airtightness around the window - you definitely have to pay attention to details to be successful with your air tightness.
How to create a well insulated and load bearing strategy for the door threshold detail? It´s easier than you might consider, by asking the right supplier for the right product. A threshold support without thermal bridging is what you should ask for.
It can be pretty time consuming to explain all the important details for window taping. Fortunately we can show with just 1 picture, what you should prevent.
Spray foam insulation is still a popular insulation method here in Ireland, whilst building regulations of other European countries do not allow this kind of insulation at all. In the light of recent events, we´d like to state some details about the air tightness and vapour behaviour of spray foam (again).
