By Business Wire News   


Owens Corning Insulating Systems launches Owens Corning® Enclosure Solutions at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Convention 2016, Booth #2901. The building science-based enclosure solutions are engineered to exceed standards for thermal, acoustical and sustainable performance across walls, below grade and roofing applications.

The Owens Corning® Enclosure Solutions launch represents the first of many wall, below-grade and roofing applications the company plans to introduce. These solutions feature category-leading components from several manufacturers, including Owens Corning, that are tested to perform together in different wall assemblies.

“Owens Corning Enclosure Solutions are designed with flexible options that deliver confidence, convenience and choice to architects,” said Todd Fister, vice president of strategic marketing, Insulation, Owens Corning. “As a leading solutions provider, we continue to help architects efficiently address the ever changing dynamics in the commercial market using proven, reliable materials in innovative configurations.”

The wide range of Owens Corning® Enclosure Solutions options allow Architects to customize components for each project. With the added flexibility that comes from working with Owens Corning® Enclosure Solutions, commercial Architects can more efficiently and accurately meet the performance demands of their projects.
