AeroBarrier Introduces New Air Sealing TechnologyKevin Dugan
AeroBarrier Connect makes air sealing faster, more precise, and cost-effective
DAYTON, OHIO – February 09, 2021 – With a simpler, modular design, the AeroBarrier Connect air sealing system makes setup, sealing, and cleanup faster and more efficient than ever before. In fact, it allows builders, contractors, and energy raters to seal more buildings each day, with precise, measured results that always pass inspection.
“This is a complete redesign, driven by extensive customer feedback and field performance data,” said Amit Gupta, CEO of AeroBarrier’s parent company, Aeroseal, LLC. “Our teams were relentless in creating a solution that delivers ultra-precise airtightness, faster than ever before. This is critical to making our technology a cost-effective option for residential, multifamily, and commercial projects.”
Impacts Entire Air Sealing Process
- Modular Design Ensures Fast, Simple Setup and Cleanup: Each smart nozzle station has its own sealant and water reservoirs. This decreases the number of hoses needed and allows for integrated flushing to clean the entire system in minutes.
- Smart Nozzle Stations Seal with Precision: Each smart nozzle station is equipped with temperature and humidity sensors to customize sealant delivery to each room. This ensures each room receives the exact amount of sealant required to seal its leaks. Using a mesh network, they relay progress in real-time, to ensure less sealant waste and faster air sealing.
- Full-Service Trailer Allows Work from Anywhere: With an electronic air compressor and a separate compartment for an industrial-grade, diesel generator, air sealing can be done anywhere with AeroBarrier Connect — without delay or using a site’s power source.
“AeroBarrier Connect is a game-changer”
— Mike Lyon, Midwest AeroBarrier
How AeroBarrier Connect Works
Once the smart nozzle stations are deployed throughout a building, the space is pressurized using a blower door and high-powered centrifugal fan. A mist of safe, non-toxic sealant particles based on each room’s heat and humidity is delivered and automatically drawn to any leaks.
AeroBarrier Connect seals leaks visible or not, up to ½”, and as small as a human hair. The software monitors the entire process in real-time, allowing airtightness to be dialed in to a project’s exact requirements. A certificate of completion with before and after results is then created for construction records.
Immediate, Positive Industry Reaction
Three contractors have had early access to AeroBarrier Connect. AeroBarrier West, Midwest AeroBarrier and US Ceiling Corp are all using the new technology. And based on their reports, demand from contractors and energy raters across North America has been unprecedented.
“AeroBarrier Connect is a game-changer,” said Mike Lyon, Chief Operating Officer of Midwest AeroBarrier. “The new design allows us to air seal more projects – easily and efficiently. AeroBarrier Connect is great for multifamily projects. We can compartmentalize units faster than ever, reaching airtightness goals every time.”
Launching at the virtual, International Builder’s Show, AeroBarrier Connect has also been recognized as “Most Innovative Software” in the 2021 Best of IBSx awards. The criteria used to select the air sealing system from more than 200 other entrants included: Innovation, Functionality, Good Design, and Builder/Consumer Friendliness.
AeroBarrier’s air sealing system is relied on by builders, contractors, and energy raters to consistently and effectively reach a building’s airtightness goals – down to >1 ACH50. It makes air sealing a precise and reliable task and is based on Aeroseal duct sealing technology. For more information, visit us online, on LinkedIn, or on Instagram.
