RH Nuttall, based in Birmingham, are a leading manufacturer and supplier of all types of Nylatron GSM Thermal Breaks. Nylatron Thermal breaks, or Nylatron Thermal Plates can be made to your exact requirements with bolt holes added to suit. Thermal breaks are used throughout the building trade to provide cold bridging prevention between internal and external horizontal and vertical metal connections. The Nylatron Thermal Break is designed with low thermal conductivity in mind, thus reducing/preventing the flow of thermal energy between the two conductive materials, thus minimising the risk of internal heat loss and condensation.
Given recent climate changes, as well as the need for more efficient housing, tight building regulations stipulate that both heat loss and internal condensation must be considered at the planning stage of building, and therefore Nylatron thermal break connection plates are calculated into the build in order to meet these requirements, reducing thermal transfer from the high thermal conductivity of steelwork structures.
