Invelope steel and foam panels create a weather-tight backup wall system for metal-framed commercial buildings. Invelope provides a moisture and vapor barrier, drainage plane, and insulation—as well as a mounting system for brick veneer or terra cotta cladding—all in one panel system. Made from corrosion-resistant steel wrapped around a polyisocyanurate foam core and similar to Centria’s Formawall, Invelope comes in 32″-wide interlocking panels and is available in 12′ and 20′ lengths and in 2″ (R-14) and 3″ (R-21) thicknesses. A factory-installed, low-emitting butyl sealant in the groove ensures a tight connection between the panels, while a peel-and-stick membrane seals all corners and window and door openings. The panels are secured to the studs using masonry or terra cotta anchors in a way that minimizes thermal bridging and penetrations of the outer skin. Invelope panels are designed to integrate with Moeding’s Alphaton and Longoton terra cotta cladding (imported by Shildan).
