Halo Exterra is not structural – it does not contribute structural strength to a home or building. However, despite not being structural, Halo Exterra can replace OSB sheathing if structural bracing is provided at the corners and certain sections of the wall to provide the needed resistance to wind and seismic loads.
Neopor’s GPS has shown an incredible ability to ward off deterioration, shed moisture, and keep steady R-Values in the face of extreme temperature and moisture changes. Learn how Halo’s advanced rigid insulation products offer long-term quality, even in the harshest of environments.
Halo advanced rigid insulation foam boards can come in handy if you want to minimize echo in a room or decouple a partition or exterior wall while adding insulation and a vapor barrier if needed. Halo’s products excel at blocking heat flow and vapor, mitigating Radon ingress, and serving many other functions that improve health, comfort, and energy efficiency.
When choosing an acceptable adhesive for your foam board insulation, you should use a weather-resistant construction glue that is compatible with expanded polystyrene foam to secure Halo products to wood or concrete surfaces. Discover two great options here.
Thanks to the recently launched Canada Greener Homes Grant, 700,000 Canadian homeowners can claim a rebate of up to $5,000 for energy efficiency upgrades to their homes. This fruitful incentive can help you achieve long-term energy savings and recover a decent portion of the retrofitting costs.
Adding a layer of R-5 CI to a wall assembly may not seem like a significant upgrade, but the tests prove otherwise — it’s highly consequential. Read this full article to see how you can potentially save 20-40% in energy savings by adding a layer of Halo Exterra!
Radon is a hazardous, radioactive gas that’s prevalent across much of North America. But while our building codes have a working solution, what if we told you that there’s a product that performs 7 times better at stopping Radon ingress? This post will examine the test results comparing the Radon-retarding properties of Halo’s Subterra Plus versus the current code requirement.
Our residential codes go far in ensuring energy efficiency but leave home comfort out of the equation. So it’s up to you, the builder, to ensure that buyers feel well when they live in the homes you construct.
To help protect against termites in high infestation areas (which are generally concentrated in the South east USA) Halo Subterra and Exterra products are available from our plants in Tennessee, Mississippi and Kansas with foam cores treated with Preventol, which adds an secondary layer of defense against termites.
