SOPREMA is proud to present the second edition of the BUILD BETTER guide which is intended for professionals involved in the design, implementation and construction of high performing energy efficient buildings.
These days, we know that it can be difficult to choose which products are ideal to obtain a high-performance building and prevent heat loss.
To provide you with peace of mind and make your job easier, SOPREMA has collaborated with the firm Morrison Hershfield in the testing of wall assemblies that comply with the energy performance requirements of the National Energy Code for Buildings and much more!
Recognizing that energy efficiency is about more than prescriptive energy code compliance, this second edition also provides tables that designers can use to validate the thermal performance of assemblies with more ambitious energy goals.
The second edition of our BUILD BETTER Guide features ACS Composite Systems’ THERMAL CLIPS as SOPREMA’s preferred attachment system for panelized exterior cladding materials.
This versatile attachment system significantly improves the thermal efficiency of wall assemblies. Moreover, to comply with strict fire restrictions, SOPREMA has carried out extensive research and is proud to introduce, in this new edition, a protected wall assembly that has passed the fire test conducted by Intertek according to the CAN/ULC-S134 standard.
