is an ICC listed, high strength, fire-resistant exterior insulated wall sheathing product.
ArmorWall arrives at the job site without additional factory-applied coatings, providing greater flexibility in the choices of field-applied coatings or membranes that must be used.
Once seam and fasteners have been sealed the enclosure may be considered “dried-in”, allowing interior construction to commence regardless of final exterior finish status.
- Key Features
- Building Types
Key Features of ArmorWall Include:
✔ Utilizes a 1/2" layer of Magnesium Oxide (MgO) sheathing on the exterior face, providing top of the line fire-resistance, durability, and strength
✔ The intentional lack of a factory-applied coating provides greater flexibility in the choices for field-applied coatings or membranes, particularly in cases where the final exterior cladding material is not yet known
✔ Excellent choice for building projects where the final cladding material isn’t yet known, but the building needs to be dried-in
✔ Meets and exceeds continuous insulation (ci), building code, and green certification programs
ArmorWall 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 is the Best Solution for These Building Types:
✔ Core and shell building construction or renovation that will result in tenant upfits, particularly to the exterior cladding, at a later time
✔ Retail, office and low-rise buildings
