There is finally a better cost-effective way to get a thermally broken exterior wall, introducing a code compliant structural insulated framing system with a built-in thermal break. An initial R-Value of 20.2 through the entire wall structure solves the number one nemesis in the construction industry... how to minimize or stop the flow of heat and cold through a wall assembly... cost effectively. The structural insulated framing system is everything you need to construct an exterior wall or a party wall including the top and bottom plates, wall stud, king studs and jack studs, cripples, sole and sill plates. Imagine 99.23% complete thermal break. Made with an internal truss system that provides an incredible amount of strength allowing an 8' tall to a 16' tall stud to hold an impressive 3600 lbs; 3 times that of a 2x6. Code compliant for up to 5 stories in height.
