Hunter Panels, in partnership with Covestro, is looking to save time and money for the residential construction market.

A Portland, Maine-based subsidiary of Carlisle Building Materials, Hunter is helping to produce PUReWall.

Billed as a smart solution for the skilled labor shortage, Hunter says the panelized wall assembly reduces jobsite labor, shortens build time and cuts homeowner energy costs all while ensuring a high-quality system. PUReWall is a wall panelization system developed by Covestro LLC.

Designed for use in residential construction, PUReWall by Hunter Panels is a panelized wall assembly with a proprietary combination of PUReWall Polyiso continuous insulation on the exterior and PUReWall Structural Foam (SPF) in the wall cavity.

The product is pre-assembled with both products and 2”x4” studs, up to 24” on center, in a controlled panelization facility, and is offered as a complete solution to streamline installation.

As an added benefit, the system’s continuous insulation and taped joints allow it to function as a weather-resistant barrier, eliminating the need for house wrap.

“We hear homebuilders and forecasters alike talk about the continued labor challenges the industry is facing,” said MacGregor Pierce, PUReWall product manager. “By joining forces with Covestro, we’re able to combine two products with a proven track record to alleviate jobsite demands.”

Hunter Panels also produces Hunter Xci wall insulation and Hunter roof insulation. In addition to Maine headquarters, the company operates seven polyiso manufacturing plants in New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Utah, and Washington.
