Title: Insulation strip

Abstract

An insulation strip adapted for application to the surface of a wall is described having elements extending outwardly from the surface different amounts, forming inner and outer portions considered perpendicular to the wall. The insulation strip when so applied having a position of use on the wall, the insulation strip comprising, a shell having a recess and an open side, and in its the position of use having its open side directed to the wall, the shell including, (a) an outer imperforate member of a width substantially determining a vertical dimension of the strip as oriented in its position of use, and having upper and lower side edges and of indeterminate length, (b) side elements on an inner surface of the outer member extending along the side edges determining a depth dimension of the recess and the thickness of the strip perpendicular to the wall, where the side elements have substantial dimension in the direction perpendicular to the wall, the side elements are identified as upper and lower side elements corresponding to the respective side edges, and the upper side element having an inner edge engaging the wall that is so inclined that when that side element is forced intomore » tight engagement with the surface of the building in securing the insulation strip to the building, the lower portion of the shell is biased inwardly into engagement with the building, (c) insulation material in the recess, free of mechanical connection to the shell. The insulation material is greater than the recess in vertical direction in the position of use of the strip and in the recess by friction. It extends substantially the depth of the recess, and yieldable to accommodate and shape to the inner and outer portions of the wall.« less
