Thermal Modeling

Is your wall assembly ASHRAE 90.1 and local Energy Code compliant?

Morrison Hershfield, an industry leader in thermal modeling, has analyzed the Alpha Vci configuration on steel stud walls with “CI Sub-framing” on two wall types: split insulation and exterior only cavity insulation. To assist the design community, multiple thicknesses of the three most common insulation materials (mineral wool, polyiso exterior boards and polyiso spray foam) have been modeled. Using the ECO Calculator, the layout can be determined and the corresponding wall’s U Value can be provided. Continuous Insulation just got a whole lot simpler.

Submit your project using our Build Your Project Form and we can help you determine how much insulation is required for your climate zone. Our thermally broken system has been modedled a variety of ways - consult your ECO Cladding representative for the appropriate bracket layout for your project and it’s corresponding wall’s U value.

Alpha Vci Vertical C.I. Sub-framing

Alpha Vci - Vertical C.I. Sub-framing System

Vertical C.I. Sub-framing system addresses fire safety, engineering and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, creates an attachment plane for vertical panel layout.  

Alpha V brackets serve as the engineered building blocks components for vertically oriented C.I. Sub-framing. Fully-engineered and designed to incorporate intermittent Alpha brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create the “C.I. Sub-framing” layer.

Alpha Hci - Horizontal C.I. Sub-framing System

As the primary building block, our Horizontal C.I. Sub-framing system addresses fire safety, engineering and thermal performance.  Based on panel layout, Alpha Hci creates an attachment plane for horizontal panel layout.

ECO Cladding attachment systems incorporate intermittent Alpha brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create the “C.I. Sub-framing” layer.
