Where Should Halo Interra Be Installed When Insulating a Roof? Halo Interra should be installed on the underside of the ceiling joists when insulating a roof. Such placement is ideal because fastening the Interra panels to the joists’ underside is the simplest way to insulate a roof. In contrast, installing the foam boards on top […]
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.
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.
Is Halo Insulation an Air Barrier? Halo Interra Series Can Function as an Air Barrier, While Halo Exterra Cannot. An air barrier is a component of the building envelope system that blocks air movement between a conditioned and an unconditioned space. As its primary goal is to stop drafts and leaks, an air barrier must […]
