2304-04: Performance Characteristics of SMARTci™ Exterior Wall Continuous Insulation System
SMARTci™ can be installed over substrates including cold-formed steel wall studs, masonry, concrete, or roof decks. It is used in buildings constructed in accordance with IBC/IRC requirements for Type I-V construction. SMARTci™ provides the following, when used to attach exterior cladding to the building envelope: 1.) Transverse load resistance (wind and seismic), 2.) Thermal resistance (provides a thermal break between the cladding and wall framing), and 3.) Resistance to gravity loads induced by the weight of the cladding materials.
