WABASH, IN, October 31, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Thermafiber, Inc. was awarded a 2011 Readers Choice Award from ED+C magazine. Thermafiber's RainBarrier, a mineral wool continuous insulation (ci), was selected for its sustainability and performance attributes.
RainBarrier is used in rain screen and cavity wall construction systems as the external insulation. The fire resistance, vapor permeability, moisture resistance and energy saving R-value have contributed to the acceptance of this product. Mineral wool is used as a replacement for foam and other combustible insulation products in facade and masonry construction. RainBarrier 45 is available with up to 90% recycled content.
"We think RainBarrier is a great product and it has been one of the fastest growing products that we have ever developed," says Steve Edris, President and CEO. "It is really rewarding that others in the design and construction community also recognize the benefits of mineral wool in general and specifically in these continuous insulation applications. We are very bullish about the future of RainBarrier and our many other new products. Through the construction downturn, mineral wool market share continues to grow versus other types of insulation. We expect future demand growth as the building community discovers all of the benefits and new uses for mineral wool."
Thermafiber, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of premium mineral wool insulation products for commercial, residential, industrial and marine applications. Thermafiber commercial insulation products are specified 4-to-1 over other brands and have been installed in 6 of the 10 tallest buildings in the world.
