Roxul launches ComfortBoard non-combustible commercial insulated sheathing

July 9, 2013 - “New energy codes are driving the need for high performance wall systems and ComfortBoard CIS provides a true continuous insulation solution for more energy-efficient wall systems,” said Brian LeVoguer, vice-president, building envelope & specification sales, Roxul. ComfortBoard CIS (commercial insulated sheathing) is a rigid, high-density, non-combustible stone wool insulation board specifically designed for use as exterior continuous insulation in commercial rainscreen wall systems. Thermally efficient and vapour permeable, Roxul says ComfortBoard CIS provides the rigidity and durability needed for many exterior cladding assemblies, such as lightweight metal and composite panel systems. Its thermal properties improve energy efficiency. The sheathing is available in 1-in., 1.25-in., 2-in., 2.5-in. and 3-in. thicknesses, with R-values of R4, 5, 8, 10 and 12, respectively.
