Exterior Application Guides
From stucco to stone to siding, InSoFast panels provide a simplified approach to wall assembly and detailing. InSoFast panels can be applied universally to any type of exterior wall in both new and retrofit construction projects without compilcated parts, peices, and extensive training. Providing unlimited finishing options.
One Part Not So Many PiecesThe easiest way to install continuous insulation.
Best Continuous Insulation
Double Thermal Disconnect
The panel provides a thermal and moisture disconnect from the exterior elements. Uninterrupted continuous insulation (CI) always improves a wall’s thermal performance. InSoFast goes beyond just “CI”. The fastener that attaches the panel is recessed into a ½” into the insulation reducing the fastener’s thermal shorts to near zero. Additionally, fastening the exterior cladding does not penetrate the weather resistant or thermal barrier keeping your building secure and dry. Use the EXe 2.5 panel where continuous insulation is required or just the responsible choice.
Why work so hard? InSoFast takes the worry out of the complex wall assemblies. Insulation should be seamless, maintenance free, InSoFast panels are engineered with materials that will not rot, rust, warp, or decay when exposed to moisture. EPS foam is a stable material with zero thermal drift, maintaining its R-Value in extreme conditions, year after year.

Rain Screen Insulation
InSoFast’s rain screen, “drain-and-dry” is accomplished with just two layers, the panel and the exterior finish material. The first primary layer of protection is the exterior siding that protects the outside from wind driven rain. The InSoFast panel adds a secondary layer of defense with the interlocking, self-aligning, self-flashing barrier between the siding, and the air and weather resistant barrier that secures the interior living space from the exterior elements. The built-in drainage plane controls and allows excess water to, “drain-and-dry”, keeping your building safe warm and dry.
Suggested products for Exteriors Applications
Closed-cell, injection-molded EPS achieves R-10 insulation. Built into the front and back of the EX panel is a network of shingle-style capillary channels. The panels comply with Oregon Residential Speciality Code section R701.1 to serve as a certified rainscreen for exterior applications.
InSoFast Plus Method
Need a higher R-value? No Problem! Start with a base of InSoFast continuous insulation panels they are feature-rich and easy to install. Then add rigid foam insulation over top of InSoFast panels.
