Rim Beams eliminate headers above window and door openings. The result is an increase in the energy envelope’s efficiency as a result of replacing the CFS Header with insulation, which has four times the resistance to heat flow (LEED awards credits for framing efficiencies such as this).
Resolves framing challenges caused by specified headers such as:
Eliminates the Requirement for In-Line Framing:
Typical steel framing requires studs, joists, and trusses to be in-line for the height of the building resulting in added additional time and materials.
Speeds Framing of Walls
Speeds Framing of the Floors
