ABSTRACT
In the context of evolving energy codes and recent advancements in building science, this article examines insulated composite backup panel (ICBP) assemblies, which have been shown to provide a continuous and robust thermal barrier (tested with multiple rainscreen assemblies). ICBP enclosure systems have also passed prevailing fire performance testing criteria with the use of foam plastic insulation as the thermal barrier. What must design professionals know, not only about these materials but also the direction of the nation's energy code requirements?
