Continuous Insulation with PermaBase Cement Board

PermaBase Cement Board Offers Continuous Insulation


As building codes and building insulation requirements become increasingly stringent, you can count on PermaBase Fibre Cement Board to help meet your substrate needs for Continuous Insulation (CI). CI on the exterior envelope helps to eliminate air and moisture leakage as well as reduce thermal bridging, or the heating/cooling loss transmitted through steel studs. Methods to install the final exterior finish over the exterior insulation are now being refined, including z-furring channels, batten strips and direct fastener applications. Use in all types of construction, including commercial, residential and multi-family.
