I found a video of a house using the thermal or T-stud. Have you seen this product and what are your thoughts on its use in Canada. It allows for a fully insulated header above window and doors which is often a weak point of a House. The install of electrical and plumbing is also interesting as they just stab it through the insulation layer.
