Quik-Therm Solar Dry Insulation


Solar Dry is an exterior insulation that allows for both breathability and rain screen integration. Drainage cavity grooves on the inboard side allow the wall to breathe, drain, and disperse any moisture. On the outboard side, grooves located at 8” on centre allow easy of aligning rain screen strapping. Solar Dry significantly improves the performance of the wall, allows construction of 2x4” construction, and is approved by building science and building inspectors.
