QUALITY ASSURANCE  -Each manufacturing plant is regularly inspected by an independent third-party inspection agency to ensure compliance with the Quality Assurance program. In addition, manufacturing and installation personnel are trained and certified by Superior Walls of America, Ltd.


DAMP PROOFING -The concrete used in Superior Walls provides warranted lifetime protection against protection against freeze/thaw cycles and water vapor transmission. The urethane sealant used between panels provides superior protection against water penetration. Therefore, no additional damp proofing materials are required.

 
VAPOR BARRIER -The closed cell polystyrene material in the Dow Styrofoam provides a vapor barrier for Superior Walls.


FIRE RESISTANCE - Dow Styrofoam exhibits the following surface burning characteristics: flame spread 5 and smoking developed 165.

The Superior Wall does not require the attachment of a 15 minute thermal barrier over the foam plastic as proven by UBC 26-3 and equivalent UL 1715 tests.

The Superior Wall Qualifies as a two-hour fire separation wall when 2 layers of 5/8" type 'X' drywall are applied to the stud.
