Hosted on the Atlas website, the free tool allows architects to create visual renderings of millions of wall assemblies, while maintaining building design freedom
Atlanta, GA – April 16, 2018 – Atlas Roofing Corporation has created the EnergyShield® Wall Builder Tool, an industry resource designed for contractors and architects seeking guidance on designing with polyiso wall insulation. The EnergyShield Wall Builder Tool is hosted on the Atlas Roof & Wall Insulation website and allows any user to virtually construct a wall layer by layer. As each layer is chosen, the user can see the wall rendering as it is assembled. Once the user has created a final product, the rendering of the wall assembly becomes available for download, along with the matching specifications and submittal materials.
The EnergyShield Wall Builder incorporates all EnergyShield products, including EnergyShield Pro, a foil faced polyiso continuous insulation product for commercial exterior walls. EnergyShield® Pro meets all commercial building requirements: NFPA 285 compliance, Class A flame spread, and a thin wall profile of 4” thickness or less. In addition, EnergyShield Pro meets NFPA 286 requirements for exposed interior use. EnergyShield Pro allows for short term savings and long-term energy efficiencies, incorporating an integrated weather and air barrier.
“The EnergyShield Wall Builder Tool was created to speed up the design and submittal process, while helping facilitate creative freedom in building design,” said Tom Robertson, Business Unit Manager for Atlas EnergyShield. “By having millions of possible wall material combinations at their fingertips, architects can more easily envision the possibilities.”
Innovation and Design Freedom for Architects
The EnergyShield Wall Builder Tool grew out of the desire to simplify the building process for customers. Atlas was inspired by similar virtual tools in other industries, like the car builders seen on many automakers’ websites. The Atlas tool gives customers the ability to see their wall as they construct it based on the specific needs of their project, then have the specs and a custom rendering instantly delivered to their email.
The EnergyShield Wall Builder Tool was custom-built from hundreds of digital renderings of wall assemblies and is capable of producing millions of finished combinations. Please visit Atlas® online at wall.atlasrwi.com to use the EnergyShield Wall Builder.
