EnergyShield CGF Pro and EnergyShield Ply Pro are the newest members of the Atlas Roofing Corporation’s commercial polyiso wall insulation line.

EnergyShield CGF Pro, glass faced polyiso insulation for commercial exterior walls, helps protect the integrity of the continuous insulation layer by resisting jobsite damage, particularly in masonry, brick veneer and metal panel assemblies. Additionally, the product offers more vapor permeability than foil-faced insulation, has multiple NFPA fire tested assemblies and is engineered for incorporation into commercial wall assemblies.

EnergyShield Ply Pro is a Class A polyiso wall insulation bonded to plywood for commercial continuous wall insulation systems. The single component provides insulation, together with a fire-treated plywood substrate that can be mechanically fastened to various cladding systems, resulting in fast installations and labor savings. EnergyShield Ply Pro offers the highest R-value per inch of any rigid insulation.

“One of our key priorities is to make Polyiso products easy for designers and installers to use in commercial applications,” said Tom Robertson, EnergyShield bsiness unit manager. “These products are intended to bring design flexibility, R-value and NFPA fire tested assemblies advantages of Polyiso to a wider audience.”

EnergyShield CGF Pro and Ply Pro are available for ordering though an Atlas representative. The EnergyShield line of high performance insulation provides continuous insulation boards for all design, code and efficiency requirements. EnergyShield products are designed and manufactured in eight locations throughout the US and Canada by Atlas Roofing Corporation.
