Icynene, a manufacturer of spray foam insulation, today announced the recent approval of five new fire rated commercial exterior wall assemblies featuring their LD-C-50 Light Density and MD-C-200 Medium Density spray foam insulation products.
Each of the new assemblies offer continuous insulation solutions and feature a combination of Icynene SPF products in both interior cavity fill and exterior continuous, along with options for Polyiso (ISO), Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), and Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) rigid insulation boards on the exterior wall side.
"The growing demand for continuous insulation solutions cannot be ignored," said Icynene VP, Engineering Paul Duffy.
"ASHRAE 90.1 now requires continuous insulation in six of eight climate zones within the continental United States. The successful approval of these five new Icynene assemblies combining engineering evaluations and NFPA 285 and ASTM E-119 testing offers architects and commercial building owners the opportunity to maximize their energy savings options with a complete air barrier system utilizing high quality Icynene spray foam insulation products on the interior, exterior, or both sides of the wall assembly. The end result offers greater architectural design flexibility now available for continuous insulation solutions within the commercial construction markets." said Mr. Duffy.
