A new technical guide from the American Architectural Manufacturers Association addresses the most commonly used composite thermal barrier systems.

The 72-page AAMA TIR-A8-16, Structural Performance of Composite Thermal Barrier Framing Systems, includes several new figures and instructions specific to testing dual cavities. The update is the first since 2008.

AAMA bills itself as the source of performance standards, product certification and educational programs for the fenestration industry.

AAMA reports that updated software and a user guide are forthcoming to aid users in understanding information contained in this report.

“As codes mandate increasing energy performance requirements; thermal barrier designs are ever evolving,” stated Patrick Muessig, chair of the Thermal Barrier Task Group. “Keeping a complete set of updated thermal barrier performance documents is critical to the commercial fenestration market. AAMA and its members have worked hard to make sure this happens and the most crucial, and as a result, the AAMA TIR A8 update has been completed.”

The document may be purchased from AAMA’s online store.
