Description

This Standards provides methods of determining the thermal resistance of building components and elements consisting of thermally homogeneous layers, in steady-state environmental conditions.

Scope

The methods may be applied to individual elements and components, or to complete assemblies such as walls, roofs and floors.

This Standard provides only limited methods for dealing with components, or elements containing reflective foil used as a radiant barrier, and the thermal performance of sub-floor spaces.

Three methods for the determination of thermal resistance are provided:

  • (a) Laboratory measurement;
  • (b) Site measurement; and
  • (c) Calculation.

1) The methods are not intended to be applied to windows or glazing.

2) The methods for the calculation of the building envelope component R-values are not intended to be used in the calculation of R-values for use in computer thermal performance simulation programmes. The R-values in this Standard are intended to show compliance with the schedule and calculation methods in NZS 4218 and/or NZS 4243.
