Thermal Performance Analysis of Longboard Architectural Sub-Girt System
The Longboard Architectural L-Clip System is an aluminum thermal clip system for attaching exterior cladding to different types of backup walls. Morrison Hershfield was contracted by Mayne Coatings Corp. (Mayne) to evaluate the thermal performance of their revised thermal L-clip system for various scenarios. The Longboard thermally broken clip is L-shaped with a polyamide thermal break (similar to a window wall system) at the corner, separating each flange. The aluminum L-clips can be connected to vertical or horizontal sub girts that support exterior cladding.
