September 14, 2018

What is a Back Up Wall Assembly?

  • Back Up Wall Assemblies provide a alternate universal barrier wall solution to traditional multi-component wall systems
  • Back Up Wall Assemblies incorporate a single component insulated wall panel that is thermally efficient and provides the ideal air, vapor and water barrier that supports a secondary metal rain screen system
  • Back Up Wall Assemblies combine the benefits of Insulated Metal Panels with the aesthetics of multiple architectural metal facades and colors

Back Up Wall Benefits:

  • Structures can be quickly closed in to ensure weathertightness over traditional multi-part facades
  • Provides an economical solution to conventional air, vapor and water control while providing superior thermal performance
  • Uniform temperature distribution throughout the wall
  • Reduces construction delays associated with multiple trades
  • Allows for faster project completion and reduces building occupant disruption
