When the requirements for home insulation began to increase in response to rising energy costs, old methods of building had to change too. Similarly, all time high energy costs in today’s market are driving home owners to find new solutions to shield them from those costs. Simply put, the old methods of building aren’t enough to meet the costly climate control for homeowners. Fortunately, Epik Walls provides real solutions to these problems.

To meet the longevity needs of 21st century homeowners, Epik Walls offers a sustainable solution.

A home that is built faster, stronger, more energy efficient and affordable is what the new generation of homeowners are demanding. It’s time to join the Epik revolution!

In The Field

  • Reduce build time by 1/3
  • Reduce on-site labor by 1/3
  • Expedites interior mechanical work
  • Expedites interior finish work
  • No heavy-duty cranes required

In The Home

  • Unparalleled product longevity when exposed to normal outside conditions

Energy Efficient

  • Less climate control because of the closed-cell expanded polystyrene. Respective “R” 5.07 per inch
  • The tight envelope is assured by a continuous EPS barrier of 1.5” to 2” EPS beyond framing line which also eliminates any thermal bridging.

Environmentally Conscious

  • Reduced Deforestation
  • Reduced Waste
  • Reduced Deadly Green House Gas Emissions

Engineering Strength

  • Project specific engineering based on standard IBC and AISI codes. Special inspections and engineering are not required.
  • Superior racking resistance, high transverse and axial loading capacities
  • Dimensionally stable. No rotting, warping, shrinking, cracking and splitting.

Health Conscious

  • Studies have shown inhaling the fibers in fiberglass can reduce lung function and cause inflammation in animals and humans.

  • Epik Walls have no harmful fibers or off-gassing

Life Span / Fire Rating

  • When protected from UV rays, the degradation of EPS foam equates to a diminutive 0.05% over 100 years.
  • Galvanized CFS
    • 3 grades of galvanizing; G40, G60 and G90
    • 650 year average lifespan
      • American Iron and Steel institute: Durability of Cold-Formed Steel Framing Members 2004, Page 6
  • Class 1 / Class A Fire Rated
    • Not possible with wood framing
      • Flame spread of foam = 20
      • Flame spread of steel = 0
      • Flame spread of wood = >100
