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 Subframing” 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.
Give us the required U-value and we will give you your solution. Each project is thermally modeled and a report is generated to demonstrate your specific wall’s U-value. Submit your project using our Request a Quote Form and we can help you determine how much insulation is required for your climate zone. Our thermally broken system has been modeled in a variety of ways - consult your ECO Cladding representative for the appropriate bracket layout for your project and its corresponding wall’s U value.
Vci - Vertical C.I. Subframing System
Vertical C.I. Subframing system addresses fire safety, engineering, and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, this system creates an attachment plane for vertical panel layout.
ECO V brackets serve as the engineered building block components for vertically oriented C.I. Subframing. Fully engineered and designed to incorporate intermittent wall brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create the “C.I. Subframing” layer.
Wall brackets are available in our Alpha (aluminum) and Sigma (stainless steel) versions. These metals qualify as non-combustible per IBC language.
Hci - Horizontal C.I. Subframing System
As the primary building block, our Horizontal C.I. Subframing system addresses fire safety, engineering, and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, this layer creates an attachment plane for horizontal panel layout.
Our cladding attachment systems incorporate intermittent Alpha or Sigman wall brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create this “C.I. Subframing” layer for cladding panel attachment and support. .
Our components are made of aluminum (Alpha) and stainless steel (Sigma). These metals qualify as non-combustible per IBC language.
