Continuous Insulation Studies
Continuous Insulation presents challenges with the overall wall-assembly’s design, performance and construction. We are currently developing eight, steel-framed wall assemblies to evaluate their comparative differences, while standardizing to ICC 2018 in Climate Zone 5. The design solutions include multiple insulation types, location of the thermal and weather control layers, thermal breaks, fasteners, fire resistance, structural, and the final accommodation to exterior claddings.
