Owens Corning, a global leader in insulation, roofing, and fiberglass composite materials, presented new technologies that demonstrated how the company’s building science is advancing sustainability, safety, transparency and technology in buildings across North America at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2019 held recently in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Owens is introducing Foamglass cellular glass in the North American market to deliver outstanding performance for mission critical commercial roofs. Engineered to provide redundancy and stability to the roof membrane even under sustained stress, Foamglass insulation supports a broad spectrum of high-performing applications, and can support rooftop equipment such as solar assemblies. Foamglass insulation delivers outstanding compressive strength while being fire resistant and impervious to moisture, offering an extra layer of protection against water penetration.

Following the launch of the industry’s first formaldehyde free perimeter fire containment system, Owens Corning’s life safety leadership continues with the introduction of its newest innovation, the patented Owens Corning Thermafiber Mullion Cover bracket. This labour-saving bracket can attach mullion covers in hard to reach areas of the curtain wall spandrel and in spaces where traditional access methods are limited.

Owens Corning is expanding its RainBarrier continuous insulation (ci) portfolio with the announcement of new products offering better compressive strength. Resistant to fire, non-combustible Thermafiber RainBarrier ci offers specifiers and architects a true continuous insulation. The new products designed for exceptional performance in critical areas of the building enclosure will be made to order during the second half of 2019.

During the conference, architects experienced the Build Your Own Wall digital resource launching on Owens Corning’s ‘Enclosure Solutions’ website. Containing tested solutions researched and evaluated by Owens Corning’s building science experts, the flexible technology allows architects to create customisable wall and structural back-up solutions built around their enclosure challenges. The Build Your Own Wall was inspired by architects’ feedback and interest in tools to help simplify designs of wall and roof applications using tested systems to meet different performance needs. All the systems featured include a full specification package, helping architects save time while accessing the information needed to achieve their design and performance objectives.

“Owens Corning is advancing building science technologies, services and certification to serve architects, building owners and occupants with performance-driven solutions that make a difference,” said Carmelo Carrubba, vice president of insulation strategic marketing. “These solutions are enhancing our work to help the market design and build more resilient, safer and healthier buildings.” (PC)
