The Strength of Sustainability
Saves energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), buildings in the US alone account for 36% of energy use and 30% of greenhouse gas emissions. HercuWall has higher, more stable long-term R-Values than other insulation alternatives. A home built with HercuWall creates an airtight building envelope which reduces air leakage and heat loss, thus reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions compared to a structure built with stick.
HercuWall’s R31 built-in insulation delivers energy savings of up to 40%.
HercuWall is fabricated offsite and delivered ready to assemble, meaning onsite cutting and fabrication is virtually eliminated. This reduces onsite waste and space requirements.
HercuWall is made up of molded polystyrene (EPS), which uses little energy to manufacture. EPS is inert and stable and does not produce methane gas or contaminating leachates. EPS contains no CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), HCFCs (hydrochlorofluorocarbons), HFCs (hydrofluorocarbon) or formaldehyde which are harmful to the earth’s ozone.
HercuWall Recycled Material
100% of scrap EPS generated during manufacturing of HercuWall waste is ground and incorporated into new foam products. EPS is recyclable and can be turned into new products or thermally processed into a resin to make other products such as garden furniture, coat hangers and crown molding.
Preferred for LEED certified projects
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the nationally accepted benchmark for design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. HercuWall helps owners to meet and exceed LEED buildings standards in order to receive tax incentives for reducing the environmental impact on their surroundings.
“We saved 2-3 months, while building a better product. HercuWall actually allowed us to increase both density and open spaces. So it’s better for our bottom line and makes us more competitive for tenants.”
“HercuWall gives us a better way to build better. The quality is much higher than stick and you don’t have to worry about labor, materials and all the rework. When you work smarter and safer, everything just goes more smoothly.”
“HercuWall is a differentiator that enables us to develop higher quality units with energy efficiency savings, which increases the desirability to our residents and brings value to all our stakeholders. It’s also integral to mitigating our risk through predictability in pricing, sourcing, quality and labor requirements.“
“HercuWall is one of the highest-quality and energy efficient, panelized exterior and demising wall systems available for the construction industry. HercuWall’s professional collaboration team consisting of industry leading consultants, manufacturers, and suppliers ensure all efforts are made to deliver the most versatile, construction-friendly wall systems available today. ”
