WALLTITE®

WALLTITE® Insulating Air Barrier
Improve energy efficiency by up to 40%


Insulation. Air barrier. Vapor barrier. Drainage plain. One product…one application. Fully-tested and field-proven.


Thanks to its 90% closed-cell content, the WALLTITE® system combines industry-leading air permeance ratings and a superior insulation R-value to make a significant contribution to building energy efficiency.


The WALLTITE® insulating air barrier system:

  • Eliminates uncontrolled air leakage
  • Improves occupant comfort, health and safety
  • Improves indoor environmental quality
  • Improves structural strength
  • Reduces condensation, moisture and mold problems
  • Conforms to any shape
  • Is approved by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) to meet the mandated air barrier requirements of the Commercial Energy Codes of Massachusetts, Wisconsin and Michigan
  • Is installed only by ABAA approved applicators with third-party quality control inspection
