IP 1/06 Assessing the effects of thermal bridging at junctions and around openings
Gives guidance on assessing the effects of thermal bridging at junctions and around openings in the external elements of buildings and how to assess their effect on the overall heat loss (or heat gain). It enables a satisfactory estimate of these heat transfers to be made for the purposes of carrying out Building Regulations compliance calculations. It supports the Building Regulations for the conservation of fuel and power in all three jurisdictions within the UK.
