HIT Insulated Connection Receives First ICC Approval for a Structural Thermal Break in North America

HALFEN’s HIT Insulated Connection has recently received the first ICC-ES Evaluation Report (ESR), ESR#3799, for a structural thermal break system from ICC Evaluation Services (ICC-ES). ICC-ES is the industry leader in performing technical evaluations for code compliance. An ESR provides proof that products and systems meet required codes and technical standards. They are the most trusted and recognized approval by building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and engineers. Code compliance is ensured through the detailed approval process consisting of the thorough examination of test reports, calculations, quality control methods and production processes.

HIT is an ideal solution to eliminate thermal bridging and increase the overall energy and comfort of a building. HIT allows insulation to run continuously through the balcony increasing the effective R-value of the overall wall system by almost two times compared to an un-thermally broken balcony.

Your benefits with HIT are:
  • First ICC approved structural thermal break in North America
  • Eliminates condensation and mold
  • Improves energy efficiency – long term cost savings
  • Reduces cracking due to thermal expansion/contraction
  • Versatile product range to fit all balcony configurations
