Quik-Therm Connect - High Performance Rigid Insulation with Built-In Plywood Strapping
3/4" thick X 2 1/2" wide X 8' long plywood nailing strips battens/strapping are embedded within the Connect insulation panels. The plywood battens attach directly to framing members. In-turn, cladding materials are fastened to the battens.
In simulated winter-like Canadian conditions, T&G Connect wall assemblies were tested by a certified laboratory.
The results of these tests were used to design wall assemblies that would meet or exceed new, stricter energy code requirements.
2" & 3" thicknesses. 16" or 24" O.C. Custom thicknesses and densities available. Meets vapour and air barrier requirements.
Attaches directly to framing members. No exterior sheathing required.
Insulation, air and radiant barrier ... ALL in ONE. No building wrap needed. Nail gun friendly. Installs in 50% LESS TIME than conventional foam board insulation and strapping.
TONGUE & GROOVE CONNECTION
Aligns panels, stops air leaks and supports panels during installation.
COLD CLIMATE TESTED
Connect has been tested to an environment similar to Canadian winters. Temperature range: Outside -18C/Inside +21C with a 22 KPH wind/-31 wind chill.
OUTPERFORMS R-2000 STANDARD BY 45%
Conventional 2x6 wood walls & R-20 fibreglass perform at Effective R-15.4 ... 25% less than the stated R-value.
2x4 walls with 2" Connect blended with just 3.5" of fibreglass achieve R-23.1.
INCREASED LIVING SPACE
2x4 walls meet building code requirements, reduce construction cost and increase living space. By utilizing 2x4 construction, fewer trees are harvested.
STOPS ENERGY LOSS THROUGH FRAMING
T&G Connect virtually stops Thermal Bridging (energy loss) through framing. Connect is ideal for most ceiling and roofing applications.
REFLECTS RADIANT ENERGY BACK TO ITS SOURCE
Superior comfort, winter and summer.
Guaranteed lower energy bills.
IDEAL FOR COMMERCIAL AND AGRICULTURAL BUILDINGS
SAVES material and labour dollars.
PERFECT FOR TIMBER FRAME ROOFS, CEILINGS AND WALLS
T&G Connect attaches directly to rafters, joists and exterior walls. No strapping required.
