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.
ArmorWall panels utilize a 1/2” layer of Magnesium Oxide (MgO) sheathing on the exterior face to deliver top of the line fire-resistance, durability, and strength. Due to its ability to essentially move the stud face to the exterior face of the sheathing, nearly any form of cladding can be attached directly to the panel, not the stud frame assembly or substrate.
THERMAL CONTROL LAYER
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).
WATER CONROL LAYER
ArmorWall passes ASTM E331 as a water-resistive barrier for pressure totaling two hours, and complies fully with Chapter 14 of the Building Code for water-resistive barriers. Once the fasteners and seams have been sealed, the enclosure is considered dried-in, and interior construction may commence.
AIR CONTROL LAYER
When properly sealed using ArmorSeal Sealant at all seams and fasteners, the factory coated panels meet the IBC and ASTM E283 requirements for an air barrier assembly without the need for additional materials.
ArmorWall handles the stress 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.
