How and How Well Does Insulated Vinyl Work?
It’s not just your house, it’s your home, and it may be the most expensive investment you will make. Your vinyl siding should be designed to protect it. If you’re considering buying new siding, it may be because your previous siding has failed to perform the way that you need it to. Learn how the features of Fullback®V siding insulation work together with vinyl siding to deliver the performance that you expect from your siding.
Siding Wind Rating
Fullback®V siding insulation eliminates the hollow void between your vinyl siding and the wall, which makes it more difficult for wind to get behind your siding. This eliminates rattling and provides your siding with extra durability against the toughest winds. Vinyl siding paired with Fullback®V and Glide-Lock Siding Hanger Installation System can even sustain Category 5 Hurricane Winds!
Durability with Vinyl Siding Insulation
Fullback®V siding insulation provides vinyl siding with unequaled durability that stands up to everything from the harshest elements to everyday mishaps. Whether it’s hail, high winds or your son’s fastball, Fullback®V siding insulation helps keep your home looking like new for the life of the product
Prevent Termite Damage with FullBack Insulation:
Fullback®V siding insulation contains PREVENTOL®TM EPS, a systemic insecticide which protects the foam insulation from termite damage. The active ingredient in PREVENTOL® TM EPS is used at low concentrations and is safe for installers and homeowners. The active ingredient is also commonly used for pest control, crop protection and as a topical treatment for flea and tick control on pets.
Because the insulating foam is contoured to fit each particular vinyl siding profile, it eliminates the hollow void found behind traditional vinyl siding that could be structurally hospitable to nesting pests. The insulation under siding foam itself also does not contain cellulose, and is therefore not a food source for termites or other insects.
Impervious to Water Damage and Rot
Fullback®V siding insulation channels bulk water out of the wall and allows air to move through the system, sufficiently drying the wall and eliminating the potential for expensive mold, mildew and rot problems.
Length of Siding Life
By adding high-quality, contoured insulation behind vinyl siding, you add strength to the product and reduce the possibility of the siding getting damaged by wind, debris and pests. The result is an extended life for your premium vinyl siding, backed by the strongest warranty in the industry.
Begin your construction project with EPS Foam from Glide-Lock
office complex or a completely new roof, you need the right tools to get the job done. With its superior strength, insulation, and waterproofing qualities, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is tough enough for any construction purpose—from the foundation to the rooftop.
As an insulator, EPS is one of the best materials available and its use in concrete forms is unparalleled. The secret of EPS is the millions of air pockets which are formed when it’s created. These pockets impede the flow of heat, making EPS an excellent insulator—keeping things cool in the summer and warm in the winter. EPS foam by Glide-Lock can reduce energy cost by 20 % or more, depending on thickness and profiles. At Glide-Lock, we provide high-grade EPS wall insulation in a variety of thickness and sizes. EPS makes all exterior cladding products a better performer.
Roof & Slab Insulation:
Used as roofing insulation, EPS can be fashioned in lightweight yet durable panels that keep the elements out while keeping cool or warm air inside. Half the price of ISO board, EPS roofing makes for ideal barriers and more. For flooring, EPS insulation under a concrete slab floor can cut down on heating bills by 10-30%. Plus, insulating with EPS around the edge of the slab lets the house heat quicker and more efficiently.
Water, heat, and cool air have a tough time leaking through EPS – and so does sound. The structural qualities of EPS deaden sound more efficiently than fiberglass and stud wall configurations. Builders looking to create quality home theater rooms or in-home recording studios will find EPS a great building material for construction.
Working with stud walls can be time and cost consuming when you need to install arches, curved walls, custom angles and cathedral ceilings. Custom cut any shape your client wants and since EPS is so lightweight, you don’t have to worry about structural load considerations. Plus, EPS has a naturally smooth finish, which bonds quickly with paint, mortar, and acrylic-cement render.
Light, inexpensive, and easy to transport, concrete forms are an excellent use of EPS. Once the form is finished, it’s easily assembled on-site. Unlike traditional concrete forms, EPS forms remain on site, adding strength, insulation, and sound deadening capabilities. More and more construction firms are using EPS concrete forms in areas that annually face hurricanes and tornadoes.
