ArmorWall Structural Insulated Sheathing™ Symmetrical Panel (SP) Vapor Permeable (VP) was launched to enable architects to pursue previously unattainable design features through its industry-leading structural strength, durability, continuous insulation properties, and fire, air and water-resistant capabilities.
ArmorWall SP-VP arrives to the job site with a factory-applied vapor permeable coating that makes it an excellent choice for most multifamily and commercial buildings. Based on the project needs and architectural specifications, ArmorWall SP-VP can be delivered in various sizes and with various insulation thickness and R-value.
Like our other products in the series, ArmorWall SP-VP drastically reduces the number of installation revolutions around a building. This helps to reduce costs and time to weather-in by weeks.
ArmorWall SP-VP’s innovative properties allow projects to meet and exceed continuous insulation, building code and green certification programs faster and more cost effectively. ArmorWall SP-VP is manufactured in a near zero waste manufacturing plant in North Carolina.
Key Features of ArmorWall SP-VP Include
- Has the ability to provide a two-hour fire rated exterior wall assembly in one step.
- ArmorWall SP-VP is the preferred solution for buildings in densely populated areas as well as high rise buildings where installers are able to work with single panels in place of several components
- It is unique due to its additional layer of sheathing, made of Magnesium Oxide (MgO), a natural mineral with fire-resistant properties, on the interior face encompassing the rigid foam insulation.
- The MgO layers replace the common sheathings (such as gypsum, plywood, etc.) and compounds found in other products that require additional coatings, time and cost.
ArmorWall SP-VP is the Best Solution for These Building Types
- Buildings or specific wall areas that require a fire-rated wall assembly
- Projects with thinner walls that require fire ratings
- Projects with plenum spaces
- Core and shell buildings
- High rise buildings
- High velocity wind zones
- Job sites with minimum lay down space or short timelines
