MaxLife’s primary product line is the ArmorWall Fire-Rated Structural Insulated Sheathing™ series.  Through its patented Fusion Technology that combines four traditional building enclosure products into one, ArmorWall has become the industry’s most innovative building enclosure system in just a few years’ time.  Our panels enable architects to pursue previously unattainable design features with additional industry-leading benefits for structural strength, durability, continuous insulation, and fire, air and water-resistance.  

The use of recycled materials, power, and energy within the ArmorWall  system means that customers can rest assured that when you specify MaxLife within your next project, you are specifying less raw materials than other products available on the market today.

MaxLife’s mission is to supply the world’s construction markets with commoditized high-performance building enclosure products that are both cost-effective and sustainable.

MaxLife Industries is an owned subsidiary of Taylor Clay Products, which has been in the ceramics manufacturing industry since the late 1800’s and is located next to MaxLife’s manufacturing plant in Salisbury, North Carolina. Taylor Clay Products still manufactures high-quality clay masonry products at its plant in Salisbury, North Carolina where it has been located since 1949, which is next to MaxLife Industries and our operations. This close proximity allows MaxLife to use by-products from the clay masonry fabrication within our materials to further reduce our carbon footprint of both Taylor Clay and MaxLife.
