Protection From The Ground Up

Blog FrameGuardCrockett uses R-Control Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) that are FrameGuard® Coated for Safe and Effective Protection.

Make sure that your building plans include built-in protection against mold, mildew, termites and fungal decay. FrameGuard® Coated SIPs are protected with organic fungicides and a borate compound tested to be effective. The organic compounds remain close to the surface to provide protection against mold. Moldicides inhibit the enzymes’ ability to break down the wood and consume the sugars and starches that mold needs for growth, Meanwhile the borate component penetrates into wood providing protection against both decay and termites.

From the time the building materials arrive on the job site, throughout construction and after occupancy of the structure FrameGuard® coating continues to protect the R-Control SIP structure and the owner’s investment. Using FrameGuard® coated R-Control SIPS makes good economic sense.

You will know R-Control SIPs when you see them. A distinctive green color identifies wood treated with a FrameGuard® Coating. Not only is FrameGuard® green in color, it is green from an environmental standpoint.

Without mold, wood last longer, extending forest resources and reducing the need for replacement lumber.

Wood is a great insulator in regards to heat, noise and electrical current.
