Class Overview

HSW Justification:
This presentation introduces architects and designers to the many benefits of Structural Insulated Sheathing. In addition to providing structural strength, continuous insulation and other beneficial properties, using an SIS product also provides health, safety and wellness benefits. These benefits include: no off-gassing of insulation materials on-site due to off-site construction, less carbon emissions due to a pourable urethane insulation product, reduced exposure to chemicals found in common air and water barriers that no longer need to be applied on site, reduced labor time and resources that reduce safety risks, the ability to weather-in buildings faster reducing possible interior exposure to mold and other indoor environmental factors, and reduced labor risk of accidents due to only one installation revolution being needed versus the traditional four to five.


  • Identify the characteristics of various hybridized sheathing solutions.
  • Understand the benefits of magnesium oxide sheathing.
  • Understand the benefits of fusion technology versus lamination/gluing.
  • Identify how fusion based magnesium oxide SIS contribute to sustainability, constructability and versatility.
