CTLGroup was retained to provide consulting services for the ISOGARD™ CI and ISOGARD™ CI PLUS new product release for usage in exterior wall construction of commercial buildings. These products were developed to meet the continuous insulation requirement of the Energy Code. In addition to the continuous insulation requirement, these products help satisfy continuous air barrier requirements and help to meet the minimum R-value requirements of the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). They must also meet the fire performance requirements of NFPA 285 as required in Chapter 26 of the International Building Code (IBC).
Our scope of work included development and preparation of application instructions, construction details, and guide specifications to support the release of the listed products. Our work focused on the technical documentation of the products based on the following:
CTLGroup prepared installation instructions for the architect’s and installer’s use for each product. Each set of instructions was prepared in a narrative format, in sequence of installation.
