Thermal Building Concepts

Thermal Building Concepts is committed to saving energy with a focus on energy efficient constructed buildings using one of the greenest insulation products available. To achieve this important goal, we have partnered with the largest and one of the most respected manufacturers of expanded polystyrene (EPS) in North America. The combination of our network of affiliates and experience in the building and insulation industry is outstanding. We have a quality product, multiple locations for service, and the combined knowledge and experience of our network. Our system of creating a proper building insulation envelope which addresses all three forms of heat transfer while still being cost competitive sets us apart from all the current insulation systems available today.

At Thermal Building Concepts we believe insulation must perform, not by itself, but as a system in the entire building assembly. Conventional R-value testing only measures how insulation products perform by themselves. Factors such as wind, moisture, air movement, and building components like wood and metal framing members, sheet rock, OSB, etc. are not considered in conventional R-Value testing.

Thermal 3Ht Insulation's extensive ASTM testing considers the "Real World" performance of insulation products in actual wall assemblies. In many tested wall assemblies Thermal 3Ht Insulation on its own and/or combined with fiberglass insulation improved the overall R-value performance by over 100%.

After all, what's most important to you; the R-value of an insulation product in a laboratory? Or the actual R-value performance of a complete wall assembly in simulated "Real World" conditions?
