the walls will have 9 1/4 inches of cellulose insulation r-32 plus the exterior mineral wool insulation, for a total of about r-40. mounted on the exterior like rigid foam, comfortboard mineral wool has the added benefit of allowing walls to dry out to the exterior research on this topic is available at the building science corporation
for rigid pu boards, panels and metal-faced sandwich elements, our complete, ready-to-foam systems are designed for numerous insulation requirements, from walls and facades to pitched and flat roof constructions. in addition, our highly versatile spray foams provide intelligent, tailored solutions for energy-efficient, economic climate control.
install continuous rigid foam insulation or insulated siding to help reduce thermal bridging through wood- or metal-framed exterior walls. install rigid foam over or in place of plywood, osb, or other wall sheathing.
compressive strength of the rigid insulation, as well as the static friction between the layers. the system mechanics research provided some useful insights into the magnitude of the various load components, even if many of the exact mechanisms cannot be accurately predicted. cladding attachment over thick exterior insulating sheathing
exe 2.5 exterior applications. the exe 2.5 is our most versatile exterior grade panel optimized for masonry or framed construction. it combines all the best features of continuous insulation that is the exe: rainscreen, insulation, furring, with self-flashing panels ready for finishing.
apart from the fact the supporting framework must be able to bear the cladding, it also needs to be suitable for the exterior wall insulation added, meaning that it should be deep enough for the insulation material to be installed and must be able to minimize thermal bridges occurrence. external insulation
exterior rigid insulation best practices top innovator: bsc, phi, northernstar field studies by building americas research teams show the most effective ways to take advantage of the thermal, air, and vapor resistance properties of rigid foam insulation on walls, roofs, and foundations.
when using rigid exterior insulation ashrae gives full credit for the manufacturers published r-value because there is less thermal bridging when insulating by this method. figure 1. steel stud cavity wall with fiberglass batt insulation in the stud cavity 1 exterior cladding 2 air space optional; recommended for water management
exterior insulation and finish system eifs is a non-load bearing cladding system for exterior walls which combines continuous rigid board insulation, drainage and water resistant finished surface in a single composite system.
a continuous layer of rigid insulation is the preferred wall solution for providing the ultimate above-grade wall protection. by insulating the entire exterior wall span not just the space between wall studs thermal bridging is minimized and energy efficiency maximized.

using exterior insulation on a window without adding the thickness, matt explains how roxul helps achieve this detail. www.roxul.com www.mattri
exterior cladding - cork at sight solution description. façade cladding with special mdfacade expanded insulation corkboard as exterior wall finish, with the natural look of cork. technical features. density: /- 130 kg/m3 thermal conductivity: = 0,043 w/m c optimal behaviour in large temperature range -180 c a 120 c
the right is a thermally efficient low-conductivity clip and rail cladding attachment system. the exterior insulation utilizing the continuous girts is less than 25% effective, whereas the exterior insulation utilizing the clip and rail system is approximately 80% effectivesignificantly improving the thermal performance of
install stucco as an exterior wall cladding over rigid foam insulation with proper preparation to provide water management as well as a sound substrate for the stucco. determine the location of the walls water control layer typically behind the insulation over the exterior sheathing . provide a drainage gap in front of the water control layer.
an experienced builder explains the ins and outs of airtight exterior insulation installing rigid foam on the outside of a house is a great way to double the r-value and eliminate air leaks.
exterior wall basement insulation. our exterior wall basement insulation can be a solution for basement wall assemblies, combining continuous rigid insulation and friction fit batt insulation between the studs.
cladding attachment over thick exterior rigid insulation background current building code does provide prescriptive means to attach cladding over exterior insulation table r704.3 note v: minimum nail length must accommodate sheathing and penetrate framing a minimum 1 ½ inches. current pneumatic nailers have maximum fastener lengths
exterior cladding is the first barrier prevention from the elements such as weather and sound. exterior cladding tends to be more than one material for instance external layer, moisture and insulation barriers and another layer for internal protection.
exterior insulation and cladding attachment brick veneer exterior insulation and cladding attachment brick veneer exterior insulation and cladding attachment other claddings for insulation less than 1.5 direct attachment of cladding though insulation back to the structure is practical
for wall sections 1 and 2, cladding systems such as traditional hard-coat stucco and acrylic stucco can be directly applied to the insulation board. drained insulation boards ones with vertical grooves cut in the back or vertically textured or profiled housewraps are recommended, to ensure a drainage space behind the rigid board.
construction guidelines for high r-value walls without exterior rigid insulation lois b. arena . consortium for advanced residential buildings . july 2016
exterior insulation and finish systems, or eifs, are proprietary wall cladding assemblies that combine rigid insulation board with a water-resistant exterior coating. eifs are popular chiefly for their low cost and high insulating values, and they are used in a range of construction types, from hotels to office parks to multifamily housing.
