CENTRIA Introduces Smart-R™ Wall Solution
Smarter design. Smarter Performance. Smarter Wall.
Moon Township, PA, June 10, 2010—CENTRIA introduces the Smart-R Wall Solution to its unique line of metal wall products. This new system offers a high-performance architectural cladding with seamless integration of panels, windows, louvers and sunshades resulting in sleek sightlines at component joinery intersections. Smart-R provides improved thermal performance, addresses air infiltration and offers superior defense against water intrusion, all with tremendous design flexibility.
“The Smart-R Wall Solution is a system that integrates multiple architectural design facets into one innovative wall,” said Greg Lusty, Product Manager, CENTRIA. “Due to its integrated design, Smart-R reduces the amount of materials used while providing an unmatched combination of aesthetics, performance and sustainability. Moreover, the design specifically addresses air infiltration, which is a critical issue in overall wall performance.”
The Smart-R Wall Solution integrates the following components:
· 3” Formawall®-T insulated metal wall panel – available with all popular Formawall profiles
· FV-600 Formavue™ window – shop assembled, integrated punched or strip window system
· Formawall® IMV insulated metal vertical joint – the only foam panel product that offers a 4-sided metal joint, allowing for added aesthetic flexibility and a superior defense against water intrusion
The system’s factory assembled field glazed windows and 3” thick factory foamed insulated metal panels combine exterior aesthetic wall surface, insulation and continuous air and vapor barrier in one panel. This decreases the risk of improper field installation and increases the speed of construction.
