In today’s market, both consumers and businesses alike are increasingly aware and sensitive to the growing costs of energy consumption. Similarly, the negative environmental impact of inefficient systems and buildings weighs heavily on the minds and wallets of everyone from business owners to property managers.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), on average, 30% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, leading to a higher carbon footprint, and wasted energy costs.
Since its inception, Advanced Architectural Products has led the charge in identifying and developing innovative products, strategies and technologies to dramatically reduce commercial building energy consumption.
This quarter, the company highlights its SMARTci Systems, offering superior continuous insulation that delivers significant energy savings and enhances building performance.
Insulation Inefficiency Is Costing Businesses Big
Echoing the EPA’s concerns regarding energy loss in commercial buildings (30% on average in the USA), the Journal of Cleaner Production (Vol 235, October 2019) states that nearly 70% of energy loss in buildings is due to inefficient insulation in exterior walls. The research went on to reveal that the percentage of energy efficiency improvement is directly proportional to the percentage reduction in U-values of building components. All of which translates into environmentally unfriendly, inefficient, and costly building operations.
With oil prices up more than 65% to date, and natural gas prices soaring 112% higher since January 2021, a growing focus is on the use of energy-saving building materials and strategies to reduce costs for commercial establishments.
SMARTci Systems Continuous Insulation System
Engineered to meet exceed ASHRAE 90. 1-2013 and ASHREA 160-2009 building codes, the SMARTci system was developed as an innovative and effective insulation system to significantly reduce heating and cooling costs.
Employing green building technology, this system not only offers superior energy preservation and cost reduction but can also assist in LEED certification.
A Complete Insulation Solution
Comprised of best practice, thermally insulated sub-girts, insulation, universal cladding attachments features, and an engineered installation package, the SMARTci System is a complete insulation solution.
Designed to make buildings greener, smarter, and more efficient, the SMARTci Systems is a are best-in-class continuous insulation system solutions employing a patented GreenGirt and a structurally sound universal mounting platform that is compatible with virtually any substrate, insulation, or cladding.
The SMARTci Systems Advantage
