English term or phrase:thermal break
A thermal break is an insulating material, intended to prevent structural elements such as studs and concrete slab floors from acting as a thermal bridge. One typical example of thermal break would be foam sheets placed over the exterior sheathing of a building as shown in the diagram to the right. The thermal break provides a layer of insulation that will resist heat flow through the thermal bridge.
