Lower Insulation Costs. Superior Thermal Performance.
Gold Wall insulating system is specifically designed to provide a cost effective, energy efficient alternative to Z-Furring and stud/batt construction when finishing the interior of block or poured masonry walls.
Gold-Wall combines the proven performance of rigid polystyrene insulation with the structural integrity of steel furring strips to provide an ideal substrate for the installation of drywall or other code approved finishes, and the strength to support shelves and/or furnishings.
The High R-Value of EPS insulation is the most cost effective available and will not diminish over time!
Comparison to Z-Furring
Gold-Wall is an innovative way to insulate over concrete block, precast, tilt-up, or poured concrete walls. It has numerous advantages overr conventional Z-Furring systems:
Gold-Wall is unique because it is factory-made with 25 gauge galvanized (G-60) steel studs embedded directly into the insulation. The EPS board and rigid studs are then laminated on both sides with a durable polymeric fiber.
Recently, 88% of polled architects rated thermal performance as the top factor in specifying wall insulation. Gold-Wall insulates better than conventional Z-furring systems, because the embedded steel studs are completely isolated from the exterior wall. In a Z-furring system, the steel Z-strip is in direct contact with the exterior wall, allowing heat to escape through to the exterior surfaces, reducing the insulation’s R-Factor by over 42%* Additionally, Gold-Wall virtually eliminates condensation and related issues such as shadowing.
