Here are examples of brick veneer support systems that significantly reduce thermal bridging at the lintel to improve a building's energy efficiency.
TBS Thermal Brick Backing is a brick veneer backing system that provides continuous insulation behind the backing angle (saving installation time and improving energy efficiency).
The system design provides a wide range of adjustments, in multiple directions, to accommodate building tolerances.
It is available in carbon steel, hot-dip galvanized or stainless steel (types 304 and 316).
The FAST THERMAL BRACKET system is often used with a 4″ x 4″ x 1/4″ (100 x 100 x 6 mm) angle which is more economical than using larger, non-standard angle iron. FAST thermal supports eliminate the need for angle irons which are difficult to install and create substantial thermal bridging.
