ArmorWall sheathing is a high strength and fire resistant commercial exterior insulated wall sheathing product, commonly referred to as a SIS (structural insulated sheathing) panel. Combining the best traits of Magnesium Oxide (MgO), portland cement board, and polyurethane insulation allows ArmorWall to be unmatched within the marketplace. ArmorWall is among the world’s first structurally insulated sheathing panels which can be manufactured with various R-values utilizing our patented fusion technology while simultaneously meeting rigorous fire and building codes. This allows ArmorWall to meet the current and future Energy Code requirements of green incentive building code programs as well as the building codes themselves.
ArmorWall was developed after observing and analyzing failing results from third party forensic testing in which exterior walls would often leak over time. The number one litigation source in the construction industry is as result of difficult detailing and installation of commercial walls due to the added requirements of continuous insulation (ci), air barriers, and water resistant membranes. Many designers have been forced to redevelop their standard details which had been used for decades within their firms. One such detail being the installation of glazing and finishes directly to the sheathing because of the requirement within new energy codes for continuous insulation. ArmorWall takes the commercial wall and completely innovates this installation by adding a structural element to the exterior face of the fused insulation layer. This innovation allows the designer to again use tried and true methods of the past making wall construction efficient, speedy, and code compliant.
