Insulated panel frame system
KPS Global, Fort Worth, Texas, released a new insulated panel frame system offering what is dubbed to be more than four times the R-value, 29.30 vs. 6.25 and comparable structural performance to traditional wood-frame systems in span tests.
The design of the patented FUSIONFRAME eliminates thermal bridging and limits heat gain, condensation development and panel joint icing.
In tests of a 5-inch FUSIONFRAME insulated panel against a 5-inch wood-frame panel, the new system reduced heat gain through the freezer envelope by 50% and performed comparably in span tests.
FUSIONFRAME also eliminates thermal bridging found in traditional wood framing.
