Barricade®, an INDEVCO North America brand, innovates its Thermo-Brace® Building Envelope portfolio at its industrial complex outside Richmond, Virginia and distributes systems nationwide.
Richmond, Virginia, March 5, 2020 – Barricade Building Products will exhibit its structural sheathing envelope systems at World of Modular 2020, Booth #400, from March 10-11, 2020 at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida. Organized annually by the Modular Building Institute (MBI), World of Modular conference and trade show brings together manufacturers and dealers of commercial modular buildings from around the world.
“Modular construction is increasingly providing alternative solutions to conventional stick building,” explains Geoff Baldwin, President of INDEVCO North America Building Products Division. “Manufacturing offsite means shorter project schedules and faster project turn-around. Modular manufacturers and panelizers are looking to standardize building materials, centralize procurement, and reduce material waste, which ultimately optimizes their raw material costs.
Barricade building envelope systems have been designed to add value to all the players in the building value chain, from the off-site manufacturer to the builder to the homeowner,” continues Baldwin.
Barricade offers two sheathing-based envelope systems that replace house wrap and oriented strand board (OSB). Pricing for these sheathing options is stable compared to OSB’s commodity pricing.
Structural Sheathing Envelope System
Thermo-Brace® Thin-Wall Sheathing + Interior Board + Construction Tape + Flashing
Barricade’s Thermo-Brace thin wall sheathing, containing an air and moisture barrier on both sides, provides structural strength and greater moisture resistance than OSB. Lightweight and easy to handle, cut and install, Thermo-Brace sheets come in standard and customized sizes. In addition to thin wall sheathing, this envelope system comes with interior board, construction tape, and door and window flashing.
Structural Insulative Board (S.I.B.) Envelope System
Thermo-Brace® S.I.B. + Interior Board + Construction Tape + Flashing
The first reversible sheathing solution in the industry, Barricade’s Thermo-Brace S.I.B. combines two weather-resistant barriers (WRBs) and BASF Neopor® Graphite Polystyrene (GPS) rigid insulation in one solution. Durable and easy to install, Thermo-Brace S.I.B. provides superior mold resistance and long-term thermal resistance. This envelope system also includes interior board, construction tape, and door and window flashing.
Mike Fields, VP of Sales for Barricade Building Products, explains, “Beyond stable pricing, structural sheathing systems offer raw material reduction and energy conservation. Our R3 and R5 Thermo-Brace S.I.B. options meet the latest International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) codes.”
In both systems, Barricade Interior Board is used as a wall stiffener to protect units throughout transport and the assembly stages on site, ultimately eliminating service calls to fix cracks on the job sites.
Barricade representatives will be available during the World of Modular 2020 exhibition to demonstrate the structural sheathing envelope systems. For more information about Barricade Building Envelope Systems, visit www.BarricadeBP.com.
