Title: Metal cladding: assessing the thermal performance of built-up systems which use 'Z' spacers

Ref Code: IP10/02
Authors: T Ward

Abstract1: This Paper describes a method for determining the thermal performance of insulated double-skin metal roof and wall systems used in the UK that incorporate Z spacers. It can be used to demonstrate compliance with the 2002 Building Regulations. The method takes account of the thermal bridging caused by the metal connecting paths between inner liner and outer sheet.
