ABOUT ARMORWALL

ArmorWall Fire-Rated Structural Insulated Sheathing™ is a building enclosure system commonly referred to as a Structural Insulated Sheathing (SIS) panel.

Asset 293

Fire-Resistant

ArmorWall passes NFPA 285 testing without the additive protection of an exterior cladding. This allows most UL tested, listed, and approved exterior finishes to qualify as part of the complete wall assembly.

Asset 263

Air and Water-Resistant

When properly sealed using ArmorSeal Sealant at all seams and fasteners, ArmorWall Plus passes ASTM E331 and ASTM 283 as an air and water-resistive barrier, without the need for additional materials.

Continuously Insulated

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 requirements in building codes.

Asset 404

High Strength

ArmorWall is capable of handling many different claddings, attachments, and hangers, all of which attach directly into the component layers of the sheathing and no longer require attachment back to the stud frame or substrate assemblies.

What is ArmorWall Made Of?

ArmorWall Standard Wall

Magnesium Oxide

ArmorWall utilizes a 1/2″ layer of Magnesium Oxide (MgO) sheathing on the exterior face of the panel due to its high performance in fire resistance. Magnesium is present in large quantities all over the planet, where it is the eighth most abundant mineral on Earth. Magnesium Oxide is similar to gypsum compounds that design teams are accustomed to using for many years. 

By replacing common gypsum and cementitious compounds that are commonly found in other construction materials with Magnesium Oxide, ArmorWall delivers top of the line fire-resistance, durability, and strength. This, combined with proprietary scrim formulations, creates a structural sheathing board that is unmatched in many of today’s performance categories.

Poured Polyurethane Insulation

MaxLife’s industry innovation does not stop there. From our beginning, we understood the contribution to the difficulty and labor from required continuous insulation compliance and the multiple steps required to assemble the commercial wall. MaxLife developed another proprietary formula of a poured polyurethane (PUR) insulation layer.

As a true continuous insulation that isn’t broken other than the fasteners and mechanical penetrations, ArmorWall meets the definition in ASHRAE 90.1 for continuous insulation (ci), which few products and assemblies can match.

Key Benefits of the ArmorWall System

maxlife_Fusion_Hexagon

Fusion Technology

MaxLife Industries’ patented Fusion Technology bonds the required Continuous Insulation (ci) layer to the Magnesium Oxide (MgO) structural sheathing layer to create a combined substrate.
Asset 35

Four-in-One System

ArmorWall combines four traditional building components into one: structural sheathing, continuous insulation (ci), fire-resistance, and an air and water-resistive barrier.
Asset 161

Fire-Resistant

ArmorWall passes NFPA 285 testing without the additive protection of an exterior cladding, allowing most UL tested, listed, and approved exterior finishes to qualify as part of the complete wall assembly.
Asset 390

Panelization

ArmorWall is ideal for handling the stress of the factory-built wall assembly manufacturing process, including movement within the facility, deflection during transportation, and racking during wall erection.
Asset 261

Continuous Insulation

ArmorWall provides ease of use when conforming to the continuous insulation (ci) requirements in building codes; the thermal layer is offered in a few standard thicknesses to meet the project required R-Values.
Asset 398

Growth-Resistant

ArmorWall is insect, mold, and mildew-resistant as no paper facings or biological elements exist within the assembly to promote growth.

ArmorWall on the Job

What is ArmorWall's Compatibility?

A prominent concern with traditional components is the attachment of claddings and veneers to the wall assembly once several inches of insulation has been attached to the exterior stud face. Due to ArmorWall’s structural strength, it allows direct attachment of cladding to the component layers of the sheathing and no longer require attachment back to the stud frame assembly or substrate. Because there is no requirement, cladding can be mechanically fastened to any location on the exterior Magnesium Oxide sheathing of the ArmorWall panel.
