CertainTeed's SMARTBATT with MoistureSense Technology is a kraft-faced fiberglass batt insulation that manages moisture.

 

CertainTeed

CertainTeed's SMARTBATT with MoistureSense Technology is a kraft-faced fiberglass batt insulation that manages moisture. SMARTBATT adapts based on moisture levels in the wall cavity, blocking moisture from entering when humidity is low and allowing the wall to breathe when it senses high humidity to be released. It is available in R-values ranging from R-13 to R-38 and offers an alternative to installing a vapor barrier film over un-faced batts.

MBCI's eco-FICIENT HPCI Barrier insulated metal panel is an air, water, thermal and vapor barrier panel that can be used behind any type of façade.

 

MBCI

MBCI's eco-FICIENT HPCI Barrier insulated metal panel is an air, water, thermal and vapor barrier panel that can be used behind any type of façade. This Dade County-approved, back-up panel is installed horizontally and completely outside the structural supports. There are no thermal bridges to reduce the energy efficiency of the wall and it is a conventional air, water, thermal and vapor control that does not sacrifice thermal efficiency.
