DuPont™️ ArmorWall™️ Systems
The Premium Performance Exterior Commercial Wall Solution
DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Systems incorporate five traditional building enclosure elements into a composite panel product: structural sheathing, fire-resistance, air barrier, water-resistive barrier, and a high-performance continuous insulation layer. The five-in-one system is available with either DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Plus Fire-Rated Structural Insulated Sheathing (SIS) or DuPont™ ArmorWall™ SP Plus Fire-Rated Structural Insulated Sheathing (SIS) and includes ArmorBoard™ Plus Structural Sheathing Returns and ArmorSeal accessories as part of a complete system. As innovative products in the industry, DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Systems can replace several traditional individual components that, on their own, add cost, labor, and complexity to a project.

Let’s talk about what ArmorWall™ can do for your next project.
DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems pass NFPA 285 testing without the additive protection of an exterior cladding on the front for the full duration of the test. This allows for engineering judgements to be made for most NFPA 285 tested and approved exterior finishes when used with DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems as part of a complete wall assembly.
DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems pass ASTM E331 as a water-resistive barrier for pressure totaling two hours, and complies fully with Chapter 14 of the International Building Code (IBC) for water-resistive barriers. Once the sheathing fasteners and seams have been sealed, the structure is considered weathered and dried-in and interior construction may commence.
Once properly sealed using ArmorSeal Sealant at all seams and sheathing fasteners, DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems meet the IBC and ASTM E283 requirements for an air barrier assembly without the need for additional materials.
DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems offer a single pre-fabricated system that can be delivered on-site and installed in days, not weeks. DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems reduce the common stresses of factory-built wall assembly manufacturing, including movement within the facility, deflection during transportation, and racking during wall erection.
Our patented Fusion Technology allows us to do things that were thought impossible in recent years. Our revolutionary process and materials are constantly constructing better buildings and safer environments while saving time and money on jobsites across the globe.

“We can direct-apply cladding and fenestration to ArmorWall without additional girts and trades on site – which helps save us time, labor, and ultimately, money.”

“We were five to six weeks behind on the construction schedule due to delays with steel. ArmorWall™ got us back on track. We were framed and sheathed in six weeks, saving us three to four weeks on the project schedule.”
