KNOW THE ADVANTAGES OF ARMORWALL
PASSES NFPA 285 TESTING
ArmorWall Fire-Rated Structural Insulated Sheathing™ passes NFPA 285 testing without the additive protection of an exterior cladding on the front for the full duration of the test. This allows for engineering judgements to be made for most NFPA 285 tested and approved exterior finishes when used with ArmorWall as part of a complete wall assembly.
STRUCTURAL SHEATHING AND CLADDING SUPPORT
MaxLife Industries fuses Magnesium Oxide (MgO) sheathing onto the exterior face of ArmorWall in order to gain high strength and durability not commonly found today in traditional building enclosure products. With its ability to move the stud face to the exterior face of the sheathing, ArmorWall has been tested to support loads equivalent to most building cladding finishes, with minimal creep while under load.
ArmorWall has a high-performance, poured polyurethane insulation layer fused to our sheathing using our patented Fusion Technology, which provides an easy way to comply with continuous insulation (ci) requirements in building codes. The thermal layer is offered in three standard thicknesses and R-Values (R10, R15, and R21).
ArmorWall Plus Fire-Rated Structural Insulated Sheathing passes ASTM E331 as a water-resistive barrier for pressure totaling two hours, and complies fully with Chapter 14 of the International Building Code (IBC) for water-resistive barriers. Once the sheathing fasteners and seams have been sealed, the structure is considered weathered and dried-in and interior construction may commence.
Once properly sealed using ArmorSeal Sealant at all seams and sheathing fasteners, ArmorWall Plus panels meet the IBC and ASTM E283 requirements for an air barrier assembly without the need for additional materials.
ArmorWall offers a single pre-fabricated system that can be delivered on-site and installed in days, not weeks. ArmorWall reduces the common stresses of factory-built wall assembly manufacturing, including movement within the facility, deflection during transportation, and racking during wall erection.
MOLD AND MILDEW RESISTANT
No paper facings exist within the assembly to promote biological growth.
