Simplify Window Installation
ThermalBuck™ solves multiple problems when using exterior insulation and/or rainscreens. It extends the mounting point of windows & doors, and allows for direct structural attachment. ThermalBuck™ is part of a continuous insulation solution, and an essential part of the efficient building envelope.
Improve Performance and Efficiency
ThermalBuck™ simply does more than a wood window buck. It insulates the mounting points of windows & doors, and simplifies flashing. Dimensionally stable and strong, ThermalBuck™ prevents compression of rigid insulation, and helps to maintain the integrity of the window installation.
R-values range from 4.4 to 11. View the results of our thermal testing and see how ThermalBuck™ outperforms wood 2:1.

Using ThermalBuck™ to improve your window installation means you’ll use fewer natural resources to heat and cool your home year-round. Not only will that save you money, it’s better for the environment too.
