The ISO Clip provides a thermally broken and intermittent structural attachment for cladding systems to exterior wall assemblies. The clip is fabricated from Z-275 galvanized steel, and over-molded with a plastic isolator. Both horizontal and vertical steel girts can be attached to the ISO Clip, as shown below in Figures 1 & 2. The horizontal flange of the clip has a punched slot that allows the sub-girt to be adjusted and fastened to the clip. The plastic isolator between the metal clip and the wall provides a thermal break that reduces thermal bridging. For steel stud assemblies, the clips are fastened through the exterior sheathing directly to the steel studs using self-drilling screws.


Noble sheet membranes contain an average of 11% of post-industrial scrap. During the manufacturing process, reclaimable sheet material is reintroduced into the production system and is made into new product. Other scrap membrane is utilized by our marketing department for use as promotional product samples. Noble Company also manufactures ready-to-tile shower accessories, such as Niches, Benches and Curbs, that are made from polystyrene. 100% of the scrap material from the manufacturing process of these products is repurposed or recycled and returned to our local supplier. Other recycling practices in our manufacturing processes include: water used in the manufacturing process of Noble sheet membranes, oil from production equipment, and materials from dust collectors.


Stego Industries, LLC is involved in the research, design, development, production and marketing of proactive moisture solutions for use in various construction-related applications. EPA mandated water-based adhesive products, new energy codes, and the growing liability for mold and contaminants have forced the building industry to re-evaluate, and switch to cost-effective, solution-oriented products which will help control moisture, moisture vapor, radon gas and other contaminants. Both Stego Wrap and Aridus rapid drying concrete help eliminate major moisture sources that can lead to flooring failures, poor indoor air quality, and delayed construction schedules.
