R-VALUE: 44.0, SUITABLE FOR: new construction.THERMAL PERFORMANCE: Insulated with cellulose: R-36.0. Insulated with high-performance fiberglass (R-4.5 per in.): R-44.0.PROS:• Optional 2x3 insulated wall and high-efficency fiberglass give potential for even higher R-values.• Large capacity for moisture storage allows the wall cavity to dry gradually.CONS:• Panels are often manufactured off site, trucked to site, and craned into place, which all add to cost.• Design may be subject to joist ...


R-VALUE: 39.5, SUITABLE FOR: new construction, retrofit.THERMAL PERFORMANCE: Used in this system, cellulose (at R-3.5 per in.) yields an overall value of R-39.5.PROS:• Continuously protected air barrier keeps wall cavity dry.• Large moisture-storage capacity allows wall to dry gradually.• During retrofits, interior walls can remain intact.CONS:• Unconventional framing can increase production time and labor costs.• Increases the gross building area by 3%.

a second-skin facade is a reversed climate facade with a ventilated air cavity between an inner sheet of insulated glass and an outer sheet of single layer glass. The distance between the two skins can be between 0.2 and 2 metres depending on the concept and system detailing. Sunscreens are usually fitted in the air cavity directly behind the outer sheet, and the cavity can be naturally ventilated utilizing the Venturi effect to supply air to inside windows that can be opened even in windy…
