Johns Manville CladStone™ Water & Fire Block Included in New Wall System for Fire Protection

Fusion™ 285 wall system designed for performance and safety; first
system to meet new NFPA 2019 regulations

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Johns Manville (JM), a Berkshire Hathaway company and leading building
products manufacturer, today announced that JM CladStone™ Water & Fire
Block is included in a new wall system, Fusion™ 285, specifically
designed to meet requirements for achieving the National Fire Protection
Association’s NFPA 285, a commercial wall assembly fire test. Fusion 285
is the first system nationwide to meet the requirement, which evaluates
the flame propagation characteristics of an exterior, non-load-bearing
wall assembly.

JM CladStone is approved for use in the defined wall assembly in
commercial construction projects, types I through IV for buildings
higher than 59 feet. When used in the defined wall assembly, the
solution will delay the spread of fire in a building. Contact a JM
representative for further detail on the wall assembly.

“As part of this new wall system, our CladStone product helps fulfill
architect and building owner goals in safety and innovation, top
priorities for Johns Manville,” said Tommy Knappich, vice president and
general manager of Building Insulation at Johns Manville. “JM CladStone
and the Fusion 285 wall system are designed to provide fire protection
in line with the latest regulations, confirming our commitment to
evolving products to meet the diverse needs and performance expectations
of customers.”

JM CladStone insulation is a noncombustible continuous insulation
mineral wool product, specifically manufactured for superior performance
in rainscreen applications. Made from basalt, a volcanic rock, this
premium mineral wool product allows for the effective drainage of water
from an exterior wall cavity system, while offering exceptional fire
resistance, thermal efficiency and acoustical performance.

JM partnered with Carter Architectural Panels, Inc., Elval Colour, USG
Sheetrock, Tremco and Tenmat to create the Fusion 285 wall
system. The wall system and JM CladStone are currently available to
customers in the U.S. For more information, visit jm.com/cladstone
