The TClip System by Engineered Assemblies meets all the prescriptive requirements for nonresidential steel stud walls in ASHRAE 90.1-2007/2010 for all climate zones. The TClip System is designed with fastened cladding thermally broken from the structure. The horizontal girt connects to and is thermally broken from TClip. Vertical and horizontal girts connect outside the insulation to support cladding. The TClip System’s design also works to unite the house of design to the field of construction. The TClip installation process compares to traditional installation practices, while using fewer materials. The TClip System performs with all types of cladding materials. The clips are fully adjustable, helping the installer while providing complete design freedom for architects and maintaining superior building performance.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
