SMARTci was designed to address the inadequacies of other continuous insulation solutions. Its individual parts were created as a simple, complete solution to help you create smarter buildings. Plus, it's the best assembly to help you earn points toward LEED certification. Unlike other attachment systems, SMARTci has zero thermal short fasteners. It doesn't create cold spots for condensation inside your walls. It has a universal attachment design for virtually any cladding, and it can be used over multiple surfaces not just stud walls. SMARTci was created with one goal in mind: to make buildings more efficient. Specially designed to block off heat gaps that other solutions leave, SMARTci's thermal efficiency makes it a long-term investment in your building.
