Product presentation

  • EXCEL is made by applying an air barrier membrane to a structural “high resistance” wood fibre insulation panel.
  • The membrane imparts resistance to water penetration while being permeable to water vapour.
  • The panel is composed of interlocking wood fibres impregnated with a wax emulsion.
  • EXCEL is volatile organic compound (VOC) free and has excellent thermal resistance and sound deadening properties.

Advantages

  • Structural panel
  • Integrated air-barrier membrane
  • High water vapour permeability
  • Thermal resistance of R-3 per inch

Installation / Delivery

  • EXCEL panels are delivered on pallets with a weather proof packaging.
  • They are delivered all across North America.
