PUReWall™ – What Panelizers Need to Know
The continuous insulation on PUReWall™ acts as both the exterior sheathing and as a weather resistant barrier, replacing the traditional sheathing and house wrap. It is highly energy efficient, and when used in conjunction with spray polyurethane foam (SPF), allows for extremely high performance walls using only a 2x4 stud with 24” on center placement. The wall structure, continuous insulation and SPF are all applied in the panel facility.
When producing PUReWall™, a more complete wall panel that has additional added value to the builder is shipped to the jobsite, which increases the work done in the panel facility vs. on the jobsite. This adds additional value to the panelization process.
The biggest change is incorporating the application of the spray polyurethane foam to the wall panel. That, and the other details about how to convert a panel facility to accommodate PUReWall™ are available in Covestro’s PUReWall™ Manufacturing Recommendations document, which is available by contacting the PUReWall™ team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by logging into the secured section of the Media page.
