Building Science

The partnership between ACS Composite Systems and Soprema continues our shared vision to support the professional community with back-up wall systems that meet or exceed fire and energy codes today and into the future.

As codes and standards move toward net-zero buildings, improvements to the building envelope are required that do not compromise architecture, constructability, fire protection, cost and durability. The technical papers in this section identify how specifying ACS components as part of a high performance wall assembly will contribute to:

  • Reducing material use
  • Reducing cost
  • Minimizing wall thickness
  • Maximizing glazing ratios
  • Enabling affordable HVAC options that take up less space.
