EXe 2.5 Exterior Applications

The EXe 2.5 is our most versatile exterior grade panel optimized for masonry or framed construction. It combines all the best features of continuous insulation that is the EXe: rainscreen, insulation, furring, with self-flashing panels ready for finishing. Eliminating parts, pieces and guess work in the field conditions.

One Part Not So Many Pieces

InSoFast panels reduce the complication of building an exterior wall assembly with an all-in-one rainscreen and insulation solution

Why work this hard with so many pieces.

Double Thermal BreakWhen you can do this?


1One Part Not So Many Pieces
  • R-10 Closed-cell EPS Continuous Insulation
  • Stable insulation with zero thermal drift
  • Built-in Drain and Dry Technology
  • Mold-Resistant, Embedded Stud Framing
  • Tight Interlocking Tongue and Groove Edges
  • Stud framing included attach any finish
  • Why work so hard? When you don’t have too!
2The easiest way to install continuous insulation.
  • Self-flashing panels; no taping seams
  • Simple to install; less parts and pieces
  • No special tools or training needed
  • A measuring tape is optional
  • Lives up to its name: In So Fast
  • 3Rain Screen Insulation
    • InSoFast’s rain screen, “drain-and-dry”
      • Accomplished in two steps, that takes 7 with traditional methods.
    • The InSoFast panel adds a secondary layer of defense.
      • Interlocking Panels self-flashing barrier
      • Self-aligning; straight and true framing
    • The built-in dual drainage planes
      • Allows excess water to, “drain-and-dry”; your building safe and dry.
    • Exterior Rated Moisture Control Tested to;
      • ORSC, Section R703.1.1-approved rain screen and drainage technology
    4Double Thermal Disconnect
    • The panel provides a double thermal and moisture disconnect
    • Uninterrupted continuous insulation (CI)
      • InSoFast goes beyond just “CI”. The fastener that attaches the panel is recessed a ½” reducing thermal shorts to near zero.
      • Fastening the exterior cladding does not penetrate the weather resistant barrier keeping your building secure and dry.
    • EXe 2.5 panel continuous insulation is the best choice for continuous-continuous insulation.


    1The easiest way to install continuous insulation.
    • InSoFast takes the complexity out of wall assemblies.
    • InSoFast is maintenance free, and will not rot, rust, warp, or decay
    • Maintains its R-Value in extreme conditions, year after year.
    • Less parts and pieces = less training
    • Assemble Less. Build Better. Exceed Expectations
    2The best Continuous Insulation because;
    • No energy penalty for the studs
    • Non-conductive stud framing
    • No energy penalty for the fastener
    • Thermally recessed fasteners; no cold spots
    • Self-flashing panels; no taping of the board seams
    • Improves house wrap’s performance
    • Non corrosive stud...no rusting
    • Lives up to its name: In So Fast
    3Complete Continuous Insulation
    • One panel built to last
    • Redundancy, improved performance
    • Drains better, dries better, performs better
    • Combines rainscreen, insulation, and attachment
    • InSoFast just plain works better
    • Why work so hard? When you don’t have too!
    4NFPA 285 Cladding Options
    • One detail, one solution
    • Nationwide Code Compliance
    • Rigorous testing and assurances
    • Continuous insulation for nearly all assemblies

    NFPA 285 Wall Assemblies

    National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in the International Building Code states that - wall assemblies shall be tested in accordance with and comply with the acceptance criteria of NFPA 285. InSoFast has tested and passed these stringent guidelines, here are a few of the possibilities that will work with the InSoFast continuous insulation panel. Please contact us for specific details.

    Load Bearing Masonry Assemblies

    InSoFast Plus Method

    Need a higher R-value? No Problem! Start with a base of InSoFast continuous insulation panels that are feature-rich and easy to install and then add rigid foam insulation over top of InSoFast panels.
