ISOBRACE OSB combines the insulation performance of an expanded polystyrene panel with the rigidity of a 7/16″ oriented strand board (OSB). In addition to providing high performance and continuous insulation, it helps to increase the structural rigidity of the building.
NEW AND RENOVATION
ELIMINATES THERMAL LOSSES
Continuous insulation envelope. Installation of ISOBRACE OSB rigid insulation on above grade walls eliminates undesirable heat transfer zones called thermal bridges.
Water vapour permeable. ISOBRACE OSB allows the moisture contained in the walls to escape.
INSTALLATION: TWO STEPS IN ONE
Reduces work time and labor costs. When a rigid wood product such as OSB is desired for exterior walls, ISOBRACE OSB offers a solution that allows you to insulate thermal bridges of the frame in a single step.
* According to the cladding manufacturer’s recommendations.
ISOBRACE OSB allows you to easily meet building code and construction requirements for energy-efficient construction standards, such as Novoclimat, Energy Star and Passive House.
Expanded polystyrene insulation (EPS)
Can contribute to obtain LEED credits.
Compliance Certification is available upon request
ISOBRACE OSB product is quick and easy to install.
To ensure maximum insulating performance, make sure the installation follows the recommended practices.
