The panelized Prime Wall system eliminates over 80% of wood studs, headers and posts to reduce thermal bridging and air leakage, which saves operating dollars year after year. Wall thickness can be increased from an equivalent of 2×4 up to 2×12 equivalent for almost nothing more than the cost of the wider plates and extra insulation. Gone is the need for expensive double framing to achieve high thermal performance. In fact, BamCore’s 2×6 equivalent Prime Wall exceeds the projected 2020 California Building Code thermal requirements without the use of any continuous insulation on the exterior of the building.
To confirm code compliance under the International Residential (Building) Code and the International (Commercial) Building Code, BamCore’s wall systems and other products were reviewed by an ISO 17065-accredited agency. That agency prescribed a rigorous path of testing that BamCore completed at various ISO 17025 accredited testing laboratories. In addition, to maintain active compliance under the building codes, BamCore maintains a comprehensive in-house QA/QC program that is periodically reviewed by an ISO 17020 Inspection Agency. In the course of establishing code compliance, BamCore undertook more than 125 independent lab tests. For a complete list of testing criteria and results or a copy of our code compliance Technical Evaluation Report (TER) please contact a BamCore representative.
