Insulation With a 3/4" Thermal Break - New Metal Wall Application
Install InfraStop® double bubble insulation vertically, using 1 1/4” self tapping screws. This will secure the insulation to the exterior of the C or Z girts.
Tape the seams with InfraStop® Foil Tape (goal is an air-tight, snug seam seal).
Install a 3/4” thermal break and attach corrugated metal exterior finish.
If an interior finish is applied, install the interior panels to the interior face of the girts.
If an interior finish is to be installed, attach to the bottom of the purlins.
This will create a 3/4” air space between the exterior finish and the insulation and an 8” air space between the insulation and the interior finish.
