K-13 High-R System
CSI: 07 21 29 • 09 83 16
The K-13 High-R System is a mechanically supported insulation system for projects requiring a higher R-Value. With this system, K-13 is efficiently spray-applied up to 10" thick achieving up to R-37.5 to meet specifications.
K-13 Spray-Applied Thermal and Acoustical Insulation is an exposed ceiling finish requiring no additional barriers or materials. K-13 meets project requirements for thermal insulation, noise control with an attractive natural texture that is available in standard and custom colors.
How It Works
Performance & Efficiency
The K-13 High-R System begins with installing stickpins to the substrate and applying the first layer of K-13 up to 5" thick. This first layer of insulation is secured in place using StructaLath III, a unique welded lath wiring. The second layer of K-13 is then applied to meet project specifications for R-Value and color.
K-13 R-Value Chart
K-13 is sprayed-in-place, filling cracks, seams, and voids to form a monolithic coating over the substrate helping to reduce air infiltration. Unlike prefabricated insulations, K-13 has no voids or compressed areas to reduce thermal efficiency, resulting in exceptionally low heat-loss characteristics and an R-Value of 3.75 per inch.
With the K-13 High-R System, K-13 is applied up to 10" to meet your higher thermal requirements, making it ideal for projects such as Parking Garages, Event Centers, Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings, or Stadiums.
K-13 is made from 80% Pre-Consumer Recycled Content and inventoried to 1,000 PPM in accordance with the HPD Collaborative.
K-13 is UL GREENGUARD Gold certified and compliant with LEED v4: Low-Emitting Materials, CDHP/ California Section 01350, SCAQMD Rule 1168, and CHPS- Acoustical Ceiling. Additionally, K-13's thermal and acoustical performance may contribute to sustainable credit categories for green-building initiatives.
K-13 does not contain silica dust, asbestos, mineral or glass fibers, or PCB’s.
