Announcing FoamShield™, our new exterior insulation wall assembly

We are very excited to announce the release of Foamshield™, our Perfect Wall exterior insulation technology.
FoamShield™ technology is one of the most durable and economical ways to insulate your home, achieving ultra-energy efficiency with cost-effective wood frame construction. Our energy models show that FoamShield™ is ideal for BC Step Codes 3, 4, 5, Net-Zero, IECC & More!

The FoamShield™ wall assembly consists of rigid Korolite® EPS insulation placed on the exterior of a conventional above-grade, uninsulated, 2×4 or 2×6 wood-frame wall with sheathing membrane.

  • Lower costs of 2×4 framing with no need for thick cavity insulation
  • Superior moisture control with no interior vapor barrier needed
  • No risk of condensation, rot, mold  or thermal bridging as all studs, sheathing and rim joists stay at indoor temperature levels
  • an open interior service wall cavity for easy access over the life of the building
  • Easily optimized buildings for all climate zones and energy targets
  • Durable, proven components that are easy to install
  • 30 year R-value limited warranty
  • Cozy, Healthy & Durable Buildings with lower environmental impacts
