Currently, seven of the eight U.S. climate zones prescriptively list the commercial use of continuous insulation per ASHRAE 90.1-2010.
Architects and building owners will increasingly use continuous insulation to achieve high-performance wall assemblies and meet the energy code R-Value prescriptive requirement. Atlas can meet an extensive variety of application needs with its versatile line of wall insulation products.
Atlas Wall provides four code-compliant exterior insulation options to accommodate residential and commercial construction:
- EnergyShield Pro-Series (PRO and PRO2)
- EnergyShield (Type V / Residential)
- Rboard (Type V / Residential)
Atlas Wall CI Boards have a polyiso insulation core, which has the highest R-value rating of common rigid insulation. The closed-cell polyiso core is laminated between specially designed facers, which vary depending on the type of construction intended.
EnergyShield PRO is a Class A fire rated closed cell polyiso foam core board laminated between Class A durable aluminum facers.
EnergyShield PRO is ASTM C1289 Type I Class 1, combining rigid insulation board, high R-value, and water resistive barrier attributes with an acrylic coated front facer and reflective facer on back.
EnergyShield PRO2 is Class A fire rated ASTM C1289 Type I, Class 2 board, which adds a glass reinforced polyiso foam core to the features of EnergyShield PRO.
EnergyShield is ASTM C1289 Type I Class 1 closed cell polyiso foam core sheathing board for use in Type V construction. It is laminated between two foil facers, reflective on one side and non-reflective on the other.
Also for use in Type V construction, Rboard is a Type II Class 2 ASTM C1289 closed cell polyiso foam core rigid insulation board with two non-reflective coated glass-mat facers.
Commercial use for Atlas Wall CI Board include continuous insulation applications requiring water resistive barrier, air barrier, vapor barrier or radiant barrier.
