SMARTci 2.5 in 1 Continuous Insulation System
The SMARTci 2.5 in 1 System combines the building sub-framing, continuous insulation, and external air, vapor, and weather-resistive barrier (by others) into one cost-effective solution. Using the GreenGirt composite metal hybrid (CMH) z-girt, SMARTci Systems provide a thermal break and universal cladding attachment surface. Designed using best practices to address the inadequacies of other continuous insulation solutions, the superior SMARTci Systems thermal efficiency leads to decreased energy costs for long-term savings.
GreenGirt: Our award-winning composite metal hybrid (CMH) z-girt.
Pre-cut Rigid Insulation: Class A, foil-faced polyiso insulation panels, custom profiled in factory to connect seamlessly to GreenGirt CMH.
The Weather Resistive Barrier (by others) is a self-adhered, water resistive, vapor permeable, air barrier sheet membrane installed over the SMARTci 2.5-1 system. The application of this WRB membrane over the simple and easy to install SMARTci System, eliminates caulk, tape and expandable sealant, thus reducing material and labor costs, plus you get the warranty from the manufacturer of the WRB you choose.How It Works
The splines of our GreenGirt CMH connect to our pre-profiled rigid insulation panels, and act as sub-furring to house the CI and provide cladding attachment support - ensuring zero thermal bridging. Once installed, it becomes the ideal base for our efficient system of accessories. The finished product is a high-performance CI building envelope with the highest thermal efficiency ratings available. Add a self-adhered, water resistive, vapor permeable, air barrier sheet membrane (by others) over the face of the SMARTci 2.5 in 1 System, you have the most effective WRB / continuous insulation program in the market.
