Noise control must play an integral role in building design, as successful acoustic design increases comfort, productivity and communication. The best designs incorporate sound into the overall design solution. This article will examine why noise control is essential in building design and construction. It will compare traditional and damped wall partition designs, describing how the use of constrained-layer damping panels can be used as an alternative to multi-layer gypsum wallboard assemblies to meet and exceed the minimum code requirements.
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.
Traditional fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels (FRP’s) have been used since the 1960’s as interior wall and ceiling panels. A newer product, non-fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels, improves on the benefits of FRP’s such as mold, bacteria, moisture, chemical and stain resistance, and is also a sustainable product with fewer health hazards. This course will compare the two products, as well as describe the importance of using non-fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels to mitigate moisture issues. The course will also cover appropriate applications for the material.
SilentFX®, featuring Green Glue® and M2Tech® technology, is a noise-reducing gypsum board specifically designed for systems requiring high STC ratings where acoustic management is needed.
