Polyiso claims the highest R-value in the thinnest profile of any (ci) wall sheathing product, meeting all ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC 2012 standards, outstanding fire performance with its inclusion within a multitude of NFPA 285 compliant wall assemblies - CFCs, HCFCs, and ODP.
Hunter XCI Polyiso is a foam board used as continuous insulation in exterior walls for both commercial and residential construction and the leading product of choice for commercial roofs.
Spray Foam Insulation is a cost-effective, superior choice for exterior commercial wall solution for modern building design. This 3-in-1 product acts as insulation, air barrier, and vapor retarder with lower installed costs, reduced labor and less waste. The modern approach to continuous insulation smoothly and completely cover all areas of the wall assembly. Plus, our Icynene ProSeal Eco spray foam product can be used 12 months a year in all climates.
An Introduction to ETFE Architecture (Architectural Design)Discover why Icynene closed cell spray foam insulation offers superior performance to rigid XPS foam sheathing board... and at a lower installed cost!
The purpose of this white paper is to highlight several important performance and application facts that demonstrate why medium density spray foam is the superior choice in exterior continuous insulation applications. Findings within this white paper are based on field experience obtained on construction sites, and from testing and evaluations conducted for ICC-ES reports and Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) programs according to appropriate industry and building code performance criteria.
Building science is an integral part of what builders use today as tools to achieve a better performance building. To achieve a better performance building, builders understand the value of building science and understand that building science will help them achieve building code targets.
Air sealing is now an important part of achieving energy efficiency, and choosing the right insulation is key to achieving air tightness and performance. To reduce air infiltration and achieve an energy-efficient building, the gaps in the building’s thermal enclosure must be sealed properly.
In today’s residential marketplace, air sealing has become a fundamental part of the home building equation, so knowing where and how to air seal will save you money, time and resources on a job. Recent data from a comprehensive industry study has yielded new insights into the role of air sealing in high performance building that can equate to savings for builders and homeowners.
This course looks at how to assess post-occupancy evaluation of buildings as it affects building performance. How can we verify green building claims? The course discusses the metrics and tools used in post-occupancy evaluations of thermal comfort, and air, acoustic, and visual quality. Use of the National Environmental Assessment Toolkit is proposed as an aid in helping to link building systems to environmental quality and in understanding what should be measured, how it should be measured, and how often it should be measured.
This course looks at key strategies to achieve energy efficiency in high-rise residential buildings. The course covers building integration issues; ventilation system approaches; how tools like Pharos can help make material selections to reduce environmental impacts and improve indoor air quality; and trends in high-performance, high-rise residential building design.
