Hardiebreak thermal strip

Supplier:
James Hardie

What is it?
A 12 mm thick, compliant thermal break strip, made from a hard, unique dual-layer density configuration* of polyolefin insulating material with closed cell technology, that gives it excellent compression resistance and great strength

Where do you use it?
HardieBreak™ thermal strip has been specifically designed for use behind James Hardie® and Scyon™ external cladding on steel frames in residential, medium density, transportable and commercial applications, to reduce thermal bridging.

What are the key benefits?

  • Durability. Excellent compression resistance and great strength.
  • Enhances thermal performance. Improves a walls’ R value by up to: 10% compared to many other commonly available thermal break strips; 30% compared to walls having no thermal break at all.
  • Fast installation. The self-adhesive backing tape on HardieBreak™ thermal strip sticks directly to vapour permeable barrier for easy and fast installation.
  • Boosts wall performance. Reduces ghosting effects seen in some cladding installed onto steel framed walls in cool climates.
  • Security. Specifically designed and recommended by James Hardie for use behind James Hardie® and Scyon™ external cladding on steel frames. 
  • Satisfies BCA thermal break requirements.
  • 10 year product warranty
  • * Patent pending.
