Loadbearing single-skin façade elements

Loadbearing single-skin façade elements form the outer leaf of a typical cavity wall construction and fulfil a structural role as part of the primary structure. Insulation can be pre-fixed directly to the rear face of the panels or can be placed after the panel has been installed and prior to the internal wall finishes. Careful consideration needs to be given this form of construction in order to avoid or at least minimise the risk of cold bridging.
