Benefits of Building with Thermomass PIP


Thermomass Poured In Place (PIP) System

Proven for more than 25 years, the Thermomass® poured-in-place (PIP) system can be used for either above grade or below grade walls. The system features a core of STYROFOAM polystyrene insulation sandwiched between two layers of concrete – all joined by high strength fiber composite connectors. The result is a system that provides excellent energy efficiency and moisture resistance.

Walls built with the Thermomass system feature a substantially higher overall R-value than other wall systems, due to the high mass of concrete which can store significant amounts of thermal energy and delay heat transfer. This means far lower energy costs for you.

Using the Thermomass PIP system also has other benefits. The system can make a significant contribution toward the construction of a Green Building, as Thermomass aids architects, engineers and builders in achieving points toward LEED™ certification. In addition, the Thermomass system minimizes moisture condensation and therefore the chance for mold or mildew growth.
