is an ICC listed, high strength, two-hour fire-resistant exterior insulated wall sheathing product.
About ArmorWall SP
ArmorWall Symmetrical Panel (SP) 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.
This addition makes ArmorWall SP two (2) hour assembly rated, twice that of our standard ArmorWall panels.
ArmorWall Symmetrical Panel (SP) arrives to the job site from our factory with no additional coatings, offering building owners and general contractors flexibility in the types of air and water control layers that will be used for their building envelope.

Key Features of ArmorWall SP Include:
✔ 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 performs as well or better than other ArmorWall products and competitor products with regard to lateral strength, enabling designers to further reduce framing, sub-framing, and cross bracing
✔ Based on the project needs and architectural specifications, ArmorWall SP can be delivered in various sizes and with various insulation thickness and R-value
✔ No paper facings exist within the assembly to promote any biological growth
✔ Meets and exceeds continuous insulation (ci), building code, and green certification programs
ArmorWall SP Passes Testing For:
✔ Passes NFPA 285 testing without the additive protection of an exterior cladding on the front for the full duration of the test
✔ Passes ASTM E119/UL 263 testing using the same wall panels for the full two hours, something many other wall assemblies cannot do
✔ Testing by ASTM E72 demonstrates ArmorWall to be stronger than many other sheathing and wood products when attached directly to the stud, with no required interior blocking
✔ No components exist within the product that allow any growth of mold or mildew, as tested by ASTM C1338
✔ Meets FEMA design standards for flood resistant materials
ArmorWall SP is the Best Solution for These Building Types:
✔ Retail, office and low-rise upfits that may result in tenants selecting exterior cladding materials at a later time
✔ Buildings that may receive a future addition; ArmorWall SP can provide a fire rating on one side of a building that may allow a future building to be built close to it at a later time
✔ High rise buildings where installers are able to work with single panels in place of several components
✔ Commercial and multifamily buildings located in high wind zones
✔ Buildings in densely populated areas
