EPS and EPS-based insulation (such as Halo Subterra) is able to keep water away from a basement’s concrete wall. Of course, this doesn’t mean that other waterproofing methods shouldn’t be in place. But, this finding does mean that EPS insulation can perform both of its design functions — slowing heat transfer and groundwater management — very well.
Modern homes are filled with objects and surfaces that “off-gas,” or emit VOCs long after they’ve been manufactured. With Halo’s Interra, the off-gassing is minimal and it has earned a GREENGAURD Gold certification — an achievement reserved for materials that are proven to be clean.
The long-awaited NBC 2020 is a roadmap to Net Zero Energy Ready construction in Canada, and introduces new tiered, performance and prescriptive approaches.
Learn how these approaches are set to pave the way to Net Zero Energy Ready residential buildings within the next decade.

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.
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!
