GAF has introduced ThermaCal Wall - Exterior Wall Insulation Panels, constructed to meet the need for increased R-value in building construction.

Designed to add insulation value to the outside of exterior sidewalls while serving as a nailable base for exterior sidewall coverings, the panels help reduce heat loss and cold drive into commercial or residential spaces, the company says.

The new panels attach to structural exterior sidewalls and can be fastened to outside wall sheathing, metal, or masonry walls.

The panels are not structural, according to GAF. They attach to structural exterior sidewalls and can be fastened to outside wall sheathing, metal, or masonry walls.

Further, the product helps eliminate thermal bridging by covering the studs while adding continuous insulation to the rest of the wall, the company says. The panels also help minimize heat loss through their tongue-and-groove design, according to the manufacturer.

The company says the panels are constructed with cut-back sheathing, allowing for precision fit and clearance for sheathing expansion.
