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

  • Less expensive than walls of equal insulated value
  • Reduce heating costs
  • Reduce cooling costs
  • Reduce insect infestation
  • Epik Walls are made from sustainable low maintenance materials

Energy Efficient

  • Closed-cell Expanded Polystyrene
    • Respective “R” 5.07 per inch
  • Continuous EPS barrie
    • 1.5” to 2” EPS beyond framing line eliminating 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.
    • Abbate, Carmelo, et al., eds. Changes Induced by Exposure of the Human Lung to Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics. Environmental Health Perspectives 114 (11), 2005: 1725-9.
  • Spray foam off-gassing can last for an extended period and cause headache, eye, nose, throat, and upper airway irritation.
    • Connecticut Department of Public Health. Environmental Health Technical Brief, Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation, 2010
  • 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
