Inspired by the Old Testament story of Noah and the Ark, and driven to give back to the Earth, the world’s first prototype building featuring the concept of ‘natural thermal stabilization’ was built in the heart of the South Moravian Region.
In reference to exterior continuous insulation applications, with its greater thermal resistance, the use of spray foam insulation can lead to reductions in overall wall thickness over foam board insulation designs.
Energy codes are requiring higher thermal performance values in walls, particularly in the form of exterior continuous insulation. Icynene's new white paper focuses on comparing rigid foam board to spray foam insulation.
Building Genius presents architects, commercial builders and production builders with an insight into the spray foam insulation and building industries across the United States and Canada. With a key focus on building science, codes and standards, burgeoning trends, industry development and news, Building Genius offers an outlook from the spray foam insulation industry leader, Icynene, from the perspective of our top engineers, code specialists and industry experts.
