Section Overview Below Grade Insulated Wall Systems CommercialComplete Below Grade Wall System Owens Corning's CommercialComplete below grade wall insulation systems provide a variety of products for any combination of foundation wall insulation, waterproofing protection, drainage enhancement, slab edge and under slab insulation solutions. The products below can all be used in both commercial and residential below grade applications. FOAMULAR 250/400/600 Below Grade Insulation Below grade walls need insulation to serve multiple functions. Whether used over waterproofed walls enclosing below grade space, or over a stem wall foundation, FOAMULAR extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation is perfect for below grade environments. Available in a variety of compressive strengths, it is closed cell, chemically hydrophobic, homogenous in structure (unlike EPS, bead board), and maintains its R-value while providing durable protection against backfill in wet below grade applications. Owens Corning also provides two products that insulate, protect, and enhance drainage from vertical foundation walls. PINK-DRAIN XPS Board PINK-DRAIN board is a FOAMULAR XPS product that incorporates the features of insulation, drainage, and protection board in a single, closed cell product for the exterior foundation wall. PINK- DRAIN board with one way vertical drainage channels is highly resistant to moisture, retaining its high R-value year after year even after exposure to water, soil, condensation, and freeze/thaw cycling. INSUL-DRAIN XPS Board INSUL-DRAIN is a FOAMULAR XPS product that incorporates the features of insulation, drainage and protection board in a single product. This board has the additional features of two way precision-cut channels covered with a durable, factory laminated filtration fabric that filters soil as water drains in the channel. Whereas PINK-DRAIN XPS board is 24" x 96", INSUL-DRAIN XPS board is 48" x 96" but the size of both products covers more square footage faster and minimizes joints between boards. The ship-lap edge on PINK-DRAIN or the tongue and groove edge on INSUL-DRAIN helps provide proper board alignment and seal joints. Fanfold DWB Fanfold DWB damproofing-waterproofing board is an XPS foam layer sandwiched between two tough, non-perforated, impact resistant plastic facers. Fanfold DWB, 4' x 50' pieces folded in 2' panels, installs quickly and is used to protect and cushion the below grade wall waterproofing membranes during backfilling. The product can be used in both commercial and residential below grade applications.
