SMARTci Resources


Can GreenGirt be used with brick?

Yes, but there are a few details that need to be examined first. GreenGirt has not been designed to support a dead load of a brick system, so standard brick ledges and standard steel lintels are to be used. For attachment, fasteners should be installed along the centerline of the exterior flange of the girt or closer to the web, and the pintle location should also be installed along the centerline of the exterior flange or closer to the web.

RJ-711, Pos-I-Tie, and HVR-195VB brick ties have been approved for use, with the 90-degree angle toward the top of the exterior flange of the GreenGirt for RJ-711 and HVR-195VB. For other options, contact A2P Engineering for written approval. If additional structural capability is needed, use crosswise hat channels of sufficient capacity for brick tie attachment.

Can I use standard building cladding and still achieve superior thermal performance?

Yes. This level of thermal performance was once reserved for a select few products, but now you can use SMARTci on virtually any cladding you wish.

Do you have 3rd party testing and engineering?

All SMARTci testing is validated by a third party agency. Technical Evaluation Reports are available here. Contact your SMARTci sales representative for more information.

Does it have fire testing?

Yes. We have Class 1 fire ratings, ASTM E84 and NFPA 285 testing.

Does it take longer to install than other solutions?

No. SMARTci installs faster than traditional methods. GreenGirt’s insulation retention cleat eliminates inefficient and costly methods of through-fastening.

Does SMARTci offer design assistance?

Yes. You can find details, specs, and contact info here.

Does SMARTci utilize proven technology?

Yes. SMARTci has been field-tested via finite element analysis with ASTM and UL agencies. All components and materials in the SMARTci system have been vigorously tested and proven in the construction industry.
