Thermal Bridging

Thermal Bridging

A Thermal Bridge by definition is a localised area of the building envelope where the heat flow is different in comparison to adjacent areas.

There are a lot of thermal bridges in a building at wall junctions, roof junctions, window junctions etc. They can all cause a significant heat loss.

With careful planning and good thermal bridge detailing we can reduce the heat additional loss from Thermal Bridges to almost zero.

Setanta are one very few companies in Northern Ireland with the in house capability of calculating thermal bridge heat loss.

We take the time to ensure that the best thermal bridge details are used in the buildings that we construct which reduces the building heat loss and ensures a comfortable environment within the building.
