ESB: To Save Trees, Cut Wood
OSB. Some panels use a steel frame with foam insulation fitted to block thermal bridging through the framing. One unique panel uses straw board in the middle instead of foam ... recycled content, although it's difficult to know exactly how much. On the down side, thermal problems continue to plague steel framing. A one- to two-inch layer of rigid insulation ...

ESB: Steel Framing Offers Thermal Challenges
Thermal bridging across a wall is bad enough, but imagine what happens in ... , the steel industry will have to sell products without the thermal liabilities. At least one product already exists. The Delta Steel ... solid-web steel stud, but with thermal characteristics similar to a typical Douglas-fir 2x6. The thermal problems with steel can be ... More from this site

Home Construction - Insulation
Association, homes insulated properly use half the energy of those without insulation. Lining your "thermal envelope" - adding materials that don't readily allow heat to leak through your walls, ... compensate for this tendency, steel studs should be covered with an insulating sheathing, minimizing the thermal bridging effect. The same technique need not be used for a wood-framed house. The ...

Green Building Exterior Wall Framing Materials - Advanced Framing, Structural Insulated Panels, Insulated Concrete Forms
Additional sustainability can be achieved by using FSC-Certified lumber Reduces thermal bridging (transfer of heat through framing). Deeper wall cavities allow for greater amounts of ... Environmental Considerations Insulated walls framed out of steel experiences thermal bridging — major heat loss through the studs. Because of thermal bridging, steel framing shouldn't be used for exterior ...

Green Building Interior Wall Framing Materials - Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs), Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)
What Makes It A Green Product Has a high thermal mass to buffer the interior of a home from extreme outdoor temperatures, which reduces both ... for exterior wall framing because of the excessive heat loss through the steel framing called thermal bridging. What Makes It A Green Product Most light-gauge steel studs have a recycled content ... More from this site
