Solar Dry Insulation (SDI) - Manages Moisture in Walls
There are concerns with both rigid foam and mineral wool insulation. Rigid foam can trap moisture between itself and exterior wall sheathing, while porous, semi-rigid mineral wool insulation takes on moisture. Solar Dry is an impermeable multi-functional insulation system that allows walls to dry while channeling moisture to the outside.

Interior Basement & Masonry Insulation System (CIS)
Fibrous insulations absorb moisture. Consequently they perform poorly on the inside of masonry and concrete walls. CIS is a proprietary framing and insulation system designed specifically for interior basement, concrete and masonry walls. CIS meets code compliancy as part of an air, vapour and radon barrier system.

T&G Connect - Structure & Continuous Insulation Combined
Strapping over rigid insulation is a time consuming two step process. Tongue and Groove Connect is an all in one strapping and continuous insulation system. 3/4" thick x 2.5" wide plywood battens are imbedded within the foam insulation panels. Battens fasten directly to framing members. In turn, heavy cladding materials fasten to battens. Batten spacing - 16" or 24" centres.

Air Dry Connect - Structure, Insulation & Drying Plane
Air Dry Connect is a mixture of Quik-Therm Solar Dry and T&G Connect. Similar to Solar Dry, Air Dry has an inherent drainage plane that allows walls to dry by channeling moisture to the outside. Like Connect, Air Dry has T&G connections with 3/4" thick x 2.5" wide built-in plywood battens spaced 16" or 24" O.C.

Sub-Grade Insulation (SGI) - Effectively Impermeable
Conventional foam insulation products are easily damaged. To mitigate the effect of moisture absorption and radon gas emissions they require a layer of polyethylene. SGI is rugged and durable. Impermeable polymer films are laminated to both sides of its EPS core. When joints are taped, SGI achieves code compliancy as part of a radon and vapour barrier system.

Multi-Purpose Insulation (MPI) - Works Almost Everywhere
Effectively impermeable, damage resistant, continuous insulation offers numerous benefits for Designers and Contractors. Innovative Passive House designs incorporate MPI as an integral part of the combined air/vapour barrier and insulation system. MPI works for Pre-Engineered, steel, wood and concrete buildings - flat or curved surfaces. Available in sheets and rolls. Variable sheet sizes and thicknesses.

Warm Floor Insulation - Increases Comfort of Floors
Our feet are in constant contact with floors. Typical under flooring products do little to increase comfort. Warm Floor is an impermeable high density EPS foam subfloor that increases the comfort of floors by up to 7 degrees. Rigid flooring, such as laminate and engineered flooring install easily over Warm Floor. No fasteners or adhesive required.
