Fasteners to attach Kooltherm® K12 Framing Board from Kingspan® by Rodenhouse Fastening Systems

If you plan to use Kooltherm® K12 Framing Board from Kingspan® to create a layer of continuous insulation, you need to consider your options for permanent and energy efficient attachment. Rodenhouse Fastening Systems is here to support you. Before attaching the continuous insulation, you need to first attach the air and weather barrier over the exterior sheathing. To attach GreenGuard® RainDrop 3D building wrap, use the 2” dia. Thermal-Grip® flat washer with Grip-Deck® ci ceramic coated screws. The solid cap is designed to compress on the building wrap to help seal against air and water penetration. The Grip-Lok® AutoFeed fastening system is a labor saving option to rapidly attach building wrap to steel or wood studs. To attach rigid Kingspan insulation to steel studs, wood studs, or masonry substrates, we have various fastening options to consider. Our 2” dia. Thermal-Grip® ci prong washer can be used with Grip-Deck® ceramic coated self-drilling screws to easily attach into all gauges of steel. The dual prong feature on the bottom of the washer enables pre-spotting on the surface of the insulation for easy on-the-wall screw assembly. For major labor savings, use our Grip-Lok® AutoFeed fastening system which is specifically designed to rapidly attach our screws and washers into steel studs. This system is up to four times faster than using traditional bulk screws and washers. To attach continuous insulation to wood studs, the 1 ¾” Plasti-Grip® ci prong washer is a great option that can either be used with Grip-Deck® screws or it can be shot in with pneumatic nail guns. The flexible design compresses on the surface of the insulation for a flush finish. For masonry cavity wall applications, you can utilize the Pos-i-tie® veneer anchoring system with our 2” dia. Thermal-Grip® Brick Tie washer to prevent insulation blow off and also to prevent air and moisture penetration at the anchor points. For adhered masonry such as stucco or stone veneer, use our Grip-Plate® Lath & Plaster Washers with Grip-Deck® screws to attach lath outboard of the insulation. The Grip-Plate® lath and plaster washers are 1 ¼” dia. and help spread the load to be able to support heavier cladding outboard of the insulation. To attach rigid insulation to a concrete block or masonry substrate, utilize our Plasti-Grip® PMF anchor. PMF stands for plastic masonry fastener. These are easy to use by pre-drilling through the insulation and into the block or concrete substrate, placing the anchor into the hole, and tapping it flush with a hammer. No adhesives, pins, or screws required. Rodenhouse Fastening Systems. Global Strength, Personal Service.
