The Future of Air Sealing for Georgia Builders
Never fail another blower door test again – guaranteed!
With AeroBarrier™ any builder who is looking for a simple, cost-effective way to seal a building envelope will be amazed with the ease and cost-effectiveness of this breakthrough process.
AeroBarrier™, a proprietary and innovative envelope sealing technology is transforming the way residential, multi-family, and commercial buildings seal the building envelope.
Not just for high-performance or Passive House builders
No matter what your target, the AeroBarrier system reduces headaches for builders and speeds construction. A process that normally would span nearly every stage of construction, can now be completed by Imery Ratings in less than a day.
No more having to wait until the house is tested to see if it passed or failed.
Even more notably, AeroBarrier takes the guesswork out of sealing the building envelope because the system uses a blower door and real-time leakage results are displayed.
Can we answer a few questions for you?
AeroBarrier may be applied at any time between rough-in and prior to occupancy. Although, the ideal time to apply AeroBarrier is rough-in or post-drywall. Other factors that effect install is build process and climate zone.
No. During application, if a technician has to enter the space while it is being sealed they wear personal protective equipment (PPE). After the sealing is complete, the area is safe to enter without protective gear within 20 to 30 minutes.
The AeroBarrier sealant is based on a waterborne acrylic that has been used as a fluid-applied permeable air barrier for many years. The sealant is GREENGUARD Gold certified and has been tested according to various ASTM standards and NFPA 285, for fire spread, smoke production, adhesion, antifungal properties, tensile strength, etc..
The sealant is low VOC and has no off-gassing.
The entire AeroBarrier process, from setup to completion, takes approximately 4-hours for a typical single-family home. When targeting reduced envelope leakage levels of Passive House or ZERH, additional time may be required.
Yes, the AeroBarrier sealant is GreenGuard Gold Certified, meaning that it’s not only safe to be used inside a home, but it meets the stricter certification requirements for use in schools and healthcare facilities as well.
AeroBarrier seals holes as large as ½”, and as tiny as a human hair. Aerosol sealing is extremely effective at sealing narrow gaps and extremely small holes that are typically not cost-effective or are missed during manual sealing.
Third-party lab testing reveals AeroBarrier withstands a simulated 50-year durability test, with little or no seal degradation.
