GreenGirt XO is a structural support system providing a thermal break by bringing windows into alignment with the thermal plane of the continuous insulation. Windows and openings play a significant role in the overall efficiency of a building envelope. The GreenGirt XO continuous insulation system for windows addresses the decade-old issue of significant thermal loss at openings by eliminating through-wall metal, through-insulation fasteners, conductive metal angles, and inefficient wood-blocking.

Legacy materials such as metal angles and wood blocks prevent the thermal plane of the window from lining up with the continuous insulation, resulting in up to 40% or more energy loss for the opening.
GreenGirt XO is a composite metal hybrid (CMH) transition structural framing for windows and openings, bringing the thermal plane of the window in line with the continuous insulation, and maximizing the thermal efficiency to more than 90% for the opening.
