Butler Manufacturing has introduced three high-efficiency wall systems that enable community and industrial building decision-makers to prepare for anticipated changes to energy codes. The patented designs of the eShadowall, eStylWall flat and eStylWall fluted wall systems enhance the energy efficiency of new and retrofit building applications.

The unique assembly designs of the eShadowall, eStylWall flat and eStylWall fluted wall systems deliver significant life-cycle savings. Thermal spacer blocks are field-applied to the panels at structural fastening locations, preventing thermal short circuits, adding depth to accommodate thicker layers of insulation and increasing thermal efficiency. Resulting thermal values are tested and validated through the accredited Guarded Hot Box testing lab at the Butler Research and Development Center in Grandview, Mo.

Other product benefits include:

  • Ease of installation: To ensure fast and accurate installation, the eShadowall wall system’s 26-gauge panels and structural members can be factory-punched. The wall panels of the eStylWall flat and eStylWall fluted wall systems lock to conceal fasteners and provide for simple installation.
  • Functional beauty: Architecturally pleasing exteriors are created by the wall systems. For example, the eShadowall wall system features deep corrugations and semi-concealed fasteners; the eStylWall flat wall system uses fully concealed fasteners for a monolithic surface; and the eStylWall fluted wall system forms dramatic shadow effects on building exteriors.
  • Durability: A full-strength Butler-Cote fluoropolymer finish is standard to the wall systems, with a 25-year finish warranty against blistering, peeling, cracking or chipping.
