This page contains the thermal bridging handbooks produced by Constructive Details Limited. The details are available free of charge.

The first 3 handbooks have been prepared for the Aircrete Products Association. Details CD001- CD0016 (Book 1) are for partial fill external wall and  CD0017-CD0021 (Book 2) for a full-fill party wall. Details CD0022-CD0037 (Book 2) are for a full-fill external wall and correspond to Details CD001-CD0016. The party wall details, which are only for a fully filled cavity, can be found in Book 1. Book 3 covers the solid wall externally insulated wall details, from details CD0038 to CD0052. Book 4 has been prepared for Icopal Ltd and covers details CD0053 to CD0055 for the Monarfloor Wall Cap-Lamatherm System. Book 5 has been prepared for Pittsburgh Corning Europe and covers details CD0056 to CD0057 for FOAMGLAS PERINSUL HL ground floor and flat roof. Book 7 covers full fill and partial fill cavity wall details CD0059-CD0106 for Wienerberger.

You can download each handbook as individual PDF files. An essential part of the handbooks is the guidance note, as it provides information on the usability of the details such as the thermal conductivity of blocks. It also provides a brief how to guide for each Constructive Detail (drawings, range of psi-values etc) and also an example on how to use the floor details where the U value examples are more complex.

Using the search box at the top of the page, you can search using the E (External) and P (Party) numbers, or the title or type of detail. For example the search for “corner” returns 6 results.
