The InSoFast panels are made up of a fire-retardant foam. This type of foam is rated for below grade applications and does not adsorb moisture like the open-cell type of bead board.
InSoFast is a Type III Vapor Retarder and is inherently mold resistant. This type of foam is the perfect insulating material for basements.
Embedded Polypropylene Attachment Studs
The InSoFast attachment studs are made of 100% recycled polypropylene. This material has low thermal conductivity yet has extremely high strength characteristics.
These studs will never mold or rot and they will not bow or twist, leaving a straight, stable surface for drywall or exterior finishes attachment.
A unique self-aligning notch system is designed into the InSoFast panels to assure that the panels are installed on the concrete surface in alignment. This keeps the studs and wiring chases aligned.
Tongue & Groove Edges
The tongue-and-groove design on the ends of the InSoFast panel help to keep the panels flush on the surface. They are also flashed in such a way as to keep water from traveling to the front side of the panel.
Wiring Chases run vertically at 16" on center and horizontally at 24" on center in the panels. This grid work of chases provide easy access to pull wiring to any location. The chases also provide the necessary separation from the drywall face to protect the wiring as required by electrical codes.
Ribbed Gluing Surface
Each InSoFast panel has three attachment studs with a ribbed surface to allow the adhesive to maintain a tight adhesion to the wall.
The studs can be located with a stud sensor.
Recessed Attachment Points
The three recessed attachment points on the face of the integrated stud allow for any mechanical fastening that may be needed. Because these attachment points are recessed, hex head masonry screws can be used.e
