DuPont™️ ArmorWall™️ Systems

 
 
 
 
 
 

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.

Passes NFPA 285 Testing

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.

Structural Sheathing and Cladding Support
We fuse Magnesium Oxide (MgO) sheathing onto the exterior face of DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems panels in order to gain high strength and durability not commonly found today in traditional building enclosure products. With its ability to move the stud face to the exterior face of the sheathing, DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems have been tested to support loads equivalent to most building cladding finishes, with minimal creep while under load.
Structural Sheathing and Cladding Support
Continuous Insulation
DuPont™ ArmorWall Systems have a high-performance, poured polyurethane insulation layer fused to the sheathing layer using patented Fusion Technology, which provides an easy way to comply with continuous insulation (ci) requirements in building codes. The thermal layer is offered in three standard thicknesses and R-Values for both ArmorWall Plus FR SIS™ and ArmorWall SP Plus FR SIS.
Continuous Insulation
Weather-Resistive Barrier

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.

Weather-Resistive Barrier

Air-Resistive Barrier

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.

Air-Resistive Barrier
Panelization

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.

“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.”
