Thermax™ Wall System
 
 
 

The DuPont™ Thermax™ Wall System (TWS) is more than an insulated wall – it’s a systematic approach to achieving efficiency at every level: simplified design, streamlined construction and optimized energy consumption for a reduced carbon footprint.

Protect Against Moisture and Condensation

Steel transfers heat amazingly fast – up to 300 times faster than wood studs and reduces the effective R-value of metal stud wall designs by 40–60%. The ASHRAE prescriptive continuous insulation requirements for steel-framed, above-grade walls recognize this phenomenon, and in most climate zones, call for a layer of continuous insulation (ci) to be added to the assembly to help stop the steel thermal shorts that can decrease the energy efficiency of the wall system.

To meet continuous insulation code requirements it is critical to also account for condensation within the wall assembly. Even if a wall is adequately designed to prevent liquid water from entering the assembly, condensation can still occur as a result of the interior and exterior temperatures as well as relative humidity.

A Systematic Approach

DuPont’s complete system combines the strengths of powerhouse solutions to deliver a total package of benefits including:

The combined Wall System meets all applicable IBC and ASHRAE requirements for continuous insulation, moisture mitigation, air sealing, and vapor barriers. This system eliminates the need for exterior gypsum sheathing, applied air/vapor barrier membranes, and extensive site coordination, making it both cost effective and easy to install.
