Product Description:

ArmorWall™ interior/exterior wall sheathing is a UL Classified and tested, high strength, fire resistant exterior insulated wall sheathing product, commonly referred to as an SIS (structural insulated sheathing) panel. MaxLife’s technology fuses a structural element to the exterior face of our fused insulation layer which modernizes the installation of commercial and residential wall assemblies. This innovation allows the designer to re-implement legacy design or frees them to wider creativity while maintaining wall construction speed, efficiency, and code compliance.

Within the MaxLife Industries series of armorwall products, ArmorWall NC is the factory non-coated panel. ArmorWall NC panels require a field-applied water resistant membrane prior to installation of exterior wall finish. Field application allows greater flexibility in choice of membranes which have been tested by MaxLife for compatibility and performance.

Like our other products in the series, ArmorWall NC requires just one installation revolution around a building in place of the traditional four, reducing costs and time to weather-in by weeks. 

ArmorWall NC’s innovative properties allow projects to meet and exceed continuous insulation, building code and green certification programs faster and more cost effectively.  ArmorWall NC is manufactured in a near zero waste manufacturing plant in North Carolina.

Know the Advantages of ArmorWall:

NFPA 285 Approved

Fully passed the NFPA 285 on its own without a required cladding on the front. This allows most UL tested, listed, and approved exterior finishes to qualify as part of the complete wall assembly.

Fusion Technology

Panel is manufactured using patented fusion technology bestowing unique properties to ArmorWall NC. Lamination not being party to the process allows a smooth foam backing.

Structural Sheathing

Thanks to the fusion technology and the elements of which ArmorWall is comprised, the structural strength of the panel allows direct attachment for cladding to the panel without the requirement of pin-pointing the studs.

Thermal Control Layer

The insulating layer of high density foam insulation is fused to the structural sheathing element which provides ease of use when conforming to the continuous insulation requirements in evolving building codes. The thermal layer is offered in a few standard thicknesses to meet the project required R-Values.

Panelized Construction

ArmorWall is ideal for handling the stress of factory-built wall assembly manufacturing process, including movement within the facility, deflection during transportation, and racking during wall erection. Self-adhered membranes have tremendous adhesion to the ArmorWall surface.

Mold and Mildew Resistant

No paper facings exist within the assembly to promote any biological growth.
