SMARTci is a continuous insulation system that can dramatically reduce the cost to heat and cool a building, plus it meets ASHRAE 90.1-2013 and ASHRAE 160-2009 code. It can assist in LEED certification and utilizes green building technology, so it’s environmentally friendly too! The system is made up of thermally insulated sub-girts, insulation, universal cladding attachments and an engineered installation package. Simply put, SMARTci makes buildings smarter.
When metal is used to connect the exterior components of a building directly to the interior framing, this causes a thermal bridge. This thermal path of least resistance allows heat (or cold) to escape, creating a vulnerability for cold spots and allowing moisture problems. Using materials that eliminate the thermal bridge help avoid unnecessary heating and cooling costs.
Continous Insulation by SMARTci is the Solution
SMARTci was designed to address the inadequacies of other continuous insulation solutions. It’s individual parts were created as a simple, complete solution to help you create smarter buildings. Plus, it’s the best assembly to help you earn points toward LEED certification.
Unlike other attachment systems, SMARTci has zero thermal short fasteners. It doesn’t create cold spots for condensation inside your walls.
It has a universal attachment design for virtually any cladding, and it can be used over multiple surfaces — not just stud walls.
SMARTci was created with one goal in mind: to make buildings more efficient. Specially designed to block off heat gaps that other solutions leave, SMARTci’s thermal efficiency makes it a long-term investment in your building.
