@article{osti_, title = {Thermal Performance of Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems Containing Vacuum Insulation Panels}, author = {Childs, Kenneth W and Stovall, Therese K and Biswas, Kaushik and Carbary, Lawrence D}, abstractNote = {A high-performance wall system is under development to improve wall thermal performance to a level of U-factor of W/(m2 K) (R [h . A high-performance wall system is under development to improve wall thermal performance to a level of U-factor of W/(m² x K) (R [h x ft² x F]/Btu) in a standard wall thickness by incorporating vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) into an exterior insulation finish system (EIFS). The exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) is an exterior wall covering that the Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) describes as “an exterior wall cladding that utilizes rigid insulation boards on the exterior of the wall sheathing with a plaster appearance exterior skin.” The concern that has arisen with EIFS is that if not properly installed or maintained, moisture can penetrate.   Exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) are above-grade, exterior wall claddings used across the country on residential and commercial buildings. It is a popular cladding choice due to benefits such as high thermal efficiency, cost effectiveness, and design versatility.

The renovation plan was to insulate the wall and replace the original brick façade with an exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS). The old double-hung windows and the front door would also go. I’m superinsulating the remaining already-insulated walls . A thermal loop will interfere with the correct performance of the insulation, making it inefficient. Retrofitting of insulation and in particular, externally applied insulation, has become. Outsulation is the original Continuous Insulation system and is still used throughout the world over masonry and many non-masonry substrates where an air-water resistive barrier is not specified. It is also the system of choice in many retrofit conditions. Detail summary. Detail for a new window with a timber frame, to be mounted into external wall insulation, in place of an existing window. This detail is designed to reduce thermal bridging and improve air-tightness whilst spreading structural load of new window and maximising glazed area.

  The higher the R-value, the better the insulation’s thermal performance and the less energy the structure’s heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system requires. History. EIFS was developed in Europe after World War II to retrofit solid exterior brick and mortar walls and was commonly used in North America in the s.   Exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) are proprietary wall cladding assemblies that combine rigid insulation board with a water-resistant exterior coating. Popular chiefly for their low cost and high insulating values, they are used on a range of . This report analyzes the performance of walls clad with HardiePlank fiber cement siding and compares them to traditional stucco assemblies. The data presented is a subset of experimental data from a multi-phase, multi-year research project at the Vancouver Field Exposure Test Facility led by Building Science Corporation (BSC) and Gauvin Construction Limited.   This system is suited to naturally ventilated buildings where good aerodynamic and measured free area ventilation is required while achieving high acoustic, thermal, and aerodynamic performance. Unlike actuated systems, integrated ventilators are designed and manufactured specifically to provide natural ventilation and smoke control.
