Types of “Z-Girt” Sub-Framing Material Z-girts and fasteners play crucial roles within the building envelope: Z-girts serve as attachment points for cladding, assist in establishing thermal breaks, and ensure a level surface for cladding installation, while fasteners maintain structural integrity by anchoring the Z-girt in place. This sub-framing is expected to withstand the rigors of...

In the commercial building industry, Z-girts have been used for centuries. Applications include providing lateral support, resisting wind and dead loads, and connecting structural framing to cladding. Due to the increased concern for thermal efficiency along with advancements in technology and design, we have seen several changes to the materials used in Z-shaped girts. In...

Composite Metal Hybrid (CMH) vs Generic Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP): Engineering Study Performance of composite metal hybrid (CMH) and fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite substructure materials for exterior cladding attachment has greatly improved over the last several years. High performance composite metal hybrid (CMH) and, more recently, generic fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) z-girts are currently...
