Girt Conditions

Girt conditions refer to the method which horizontal girts are attached to the exterior columns in a building. The most common condition, the Bypass Girt, makes a continuous run around the outside of a building's columns, providing an air space the width of the girt between the column and the exterior panels.  An Inset Girt minimizes the air space between the columns and exterior panels.  Flush Girts provide no air space between the columns and exterior panels, yet offer the maximum amount of floor space.
