Adding Continuous Insulation, such as Halo’s Exterra, to your wall assembly can simplify your path to code compliance. Apart from helping you keep up with the evolving energy code regulations, designing walls with CI like Exterra can also lessen the load on your conditioning systems and save valuable resources.
Discover how Halo is powered by Graphite Polystyrene (GPS) and the benefits of our Neopor core. GPS provides a long-term thermal performance of R5 per nominal inch (1.06″) while offering a minuscule embodied carbon footprint compared to XPS.
With Halo® Exterra® rigid insulation, Structural wood sheathing and Zip System Sheathing are both compliant bracing methods that integrate perfectly into the building’s envelope.
The entire US is on track to re-join the Paris Agreement and gradually ban HFCs. XPS is not the only high-performance product on the market, and with high, long-lasting R-values and a 0-HFC content, Halo’s GPS is already a better, cleaner alternative.
