Thermo-ShieldNC® Concrete Faced Insulation Since 1983
Synstone Thermo-ShieldNC (CFI) panels, assembled under factory controlled environmental conditions, are fully bonded to Roxul Drainboard with a variety of attractive textures and colours to protect and decorate building exteriors.
Thermo-ShieldNC® is a concrete faced insulated perimeter wall panel (CFI) that is manufactured in collaboration with Roxul® using Roxul Drainboard wool insulation. The concrete face is a factory-applied 1/2" Synstone panel designed for use on perimeter foundations and wall cladding applications. Thermo-ShieldNC® CFI panels have excellent moisture and air barrier properties making it a perfect fit for decorative and effective skirting or cladding.
Top Thermal Performance
Insulating the outside foundation helps keep the foundation walls warm in the winter, reducing the chance of condensation. Thermo-ShieldNC® with Roxul DrainBoard is vapour permeable and displays hydrophobic characteristics, which allows the foundation walls to breathe or dry out faster than polystyrene insulation.
DrainBoard is specifically designed to deliver consistently higher R-values across the board, making it an excellent choice for lasting thermal protection in foundation wall systems.
Sustainable & Safe
Synstone® and DrainBoard are both classified as non-combustible and do not contain flame retardants. In addition, Roxul DrainBoard is natural and inorganic as well as completely HFC-free.
DrainBoard has a very low global warming potential of 0.0455 ft2·R as estimated by Green Building Product News, when compared to other foam insulations which also lessens the impact of the building on the environment. For designers of zero net energy (ZNE) buildings, DrainBoard is an often specified insulation. DrainBoard contains a minimum 75% recycled content as certified by ICC-ES™.
