Product Description

ArmorWall Structural Insulated Sheathing™ Vapor Permeable (VP) is the most popular product in the ArmorWall series thanks to its high strength and fire resistance properties.  Amongst the factory-coated panels in the ArmorWall series, ArmorWall VP arrives complete with a vapor permeable water-resistant barrier coating. Once seam and fasteners have been sealed the envelope may be considered “dried-in” allowing interior construction to commence regardless of final exterior finish status.

A tremendous benefit to general contractors and installers, ArmorWall VP requires just one installation revolution around a building in place of the traditional four, reducing costs and time to weather-in by weeks. ArmorWall VP’s innovative properties allow projects to meet and exceed continuous insulation, building code and green certification programs faster and more cost effectively.  

ArmorWall VP is manufactured in a near zero waste manufacturing plant in North Carolina.

Key Features of ArmorWall VP Include

  • Utilizes a factory-applied self-healing vapor permeable air barrier membrane.  In addition to the natural permeability of the panel itself, this membrane allows for any moisture to drive to the exterior face after installation up to and during the construction phase.
  • Testing by ASTM E72 demonstrates ArmorWall VP 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 VP is the Best Solution for These Building Types

  • Medical office buildings
  • High rise buildings
  • Multifamily buildings
  • Institutional buildings
  • Municipal buildings
  • Mixed-use and retail buildings

Project Highlights Featuring ArmorWall VP

ArmorWall VP was the product of choice for the building of the North Carolina School of Science and Math in Morganton, NC
ArmorWall VP was used on this Mixed-Use New Construction Building in Hoboken, NJ

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.
