Adhesive Attachment Methods
Architects, designers, green builders and energy conscious consumers are constantly racing for new and better ways to reduce energy usage and energy costs. Using continuous insulation is one of the most effective ways to drastically cut energy bills by bridging the thermal gaps at the studs and floor lines. However, the head-scratching problem that energy raters ignore is the through wall fastener that creates a thermal short circuit that can account for up to a 10% energy loss through the screws.
- Using adhesive to attach our panel eliminates the thermal short to zero.
- InSoFast goes beyond just “CI”. The fastener that attaches the panel is recessed ½” and insulated reducing the thermal short to near zero.

Panel Attachment Using Fasteners
InSoFast insulation panels can be attached using concrete fasteners, wood, or steel fasteners. Use a mechanical fastener if preferred or when necessary to secure the panel to the exterior wall. The advantage to using fasteners is that you can use them in any weather condition.
