Suited To Modern Metal Structures

Continuous Insulation reduces the possibility of thermal bridging. This is critical for energy efficiency, particularly in the case of metal studs as metal conducts heat much faster than conventional construction material, such as wood.

Efficiency and Quality

Continuous Insulation eliminates the need to install additional materials and components to achieve the required air and moisture protection in a building – significantly reducing costs and labor.

Adaptability

Continuous Insulation is easy and adaptable across a variety of assembly types. By providing the same level of superior quality across a range of installation types, CI doesn’t force you to work with a predefined set of assemblies.

 

Building science has proven that continuous insulation is the most effective way to optimize the structure of energy efficiency.

Why You Need Continuous Insulation

Consider going out on a cold day when the wind sends shivers down your spine. On such days, you know you must have your coat zipped right up to your neck to keep you warm. No matter how warm your coat is, you need it zipped up – if it's left open you will get cold.

 

The same rings true for your home or office insulation.

 

Even if it carries a higher than average R-value thermal performance, if it is not continuously installed throughout your building or home – heat will find its way in or out. Although insulation reduces energy loss through the wall, it does not stop energy loss across thermal bridge.

 

According to the U.S. Green Building Council, “buildings account for approximately 40 percent of the total energy used today… and 38 percent of total carbon dioxide emissions in the United States.”

 

To put that into context, the entire transportation industry uses less energy than buildings.

 

This is why the International Energy Conservation Code fully introduced the prescriptive requirement of Continuous Insulation (CI) into the building codes in 2012.

armorwall
maxlife industries

The Max Life Industries Armor Wall provides constructors with the unique advantage of being a leading SIS panel that can be manufactured with various R-values, without violating the strict fire and building codes in place today. ArmorWall takes the commercial wall and completely innovates the installation by adding a structural element to the exterior face of the fused insulation layer.

Presenting the best mixture of Magnesium Oxide, Portland cement, and polyurethane insulation – ArmorWall is the industry’s go-to SIS panel. These panels are available with or without a factory applied air and vapor barrier, so you get to choose the one that suits all your needs.

Polyiso XCI
hunter | XCI

A renowned industry reference for ‘ci’ polyiso products, Hunter Xci products come in a number of variations to suit your project’s unique wall assembly and cladding types. Hunter Xci wall products are especially designed for use in residential and commercial wall applications to deliver “ci” (continuous insulation) within the building envelope.

Not only do they provide durability and efficiency that stands the test of time, but they also ensure peace of mind by meeting all relevant industry standards, including NFPA-285 fire rating. Hunter’s Xci products continue to meet the insulation standards prescribed in ASHRAE 90.1 – 2010 as well as the laws for commercial exterior wall applications laid out in IECC 2012 and beyond.

Our Building Was Costing a Fortune to Heat
Your Team Introduced Us to SMARTci

Our old office complex was drafty and cold in the winter, and costing the company a fortune to heat. We discussed our options with Wade Architectural Systems, and they suggested SMARTci to go over the existing masonry wall, followed by new cladding. What a difference!

Patrick, S Houston, Texas
Wanted the Best Solution for Metal-Framed Walls
SMARTci Was a Time-Saver

Our project features metal stud walls, and we wanted the most efficient insulation and cladding systems we could get. Wade Architectural Systems suggested SMARTci, along with a metal panel system, and we were quite pleased with the results. Not only is it efficient, but it eliminates many of the steps along the way and installs quite quickly. We saved both time and money.
