MAXEdge Perimeter Insulation

MAXEdge Perimeter Insulation

Introducing MAXEdge perimeter Insulation - game-changing slab edge insulation for your project.

In this fast-paced construction industry, we understand the need for reliable and effective solutions.  MAXEdge not only meets, but surpasses industry standards providing you with a range of options to suit your project requirements.

Difference of MAXEdge Compared to Other Slab Edge Insulation Options

MAXEdge is an innovative and patented L-shaped slab edge insulation that is a vital component of all our products. MAXEdge is greater than R1 edge insulation and can be used in conjunction with the H1 AS1 tables for all wall types.

Our MAXEdge profiles are designed to be easily installed inside the formwork and can be adjusted to suit different projects.

By using MAXEdge, you can ensure that your building is equipped with superior insulation that not only provides optimal thermal performance, but also easily surpass the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code.

Hold Down Fixings

Our standard 90mm frame hold down fixing uses our T105 Tapered MAXEdge allowing for straight hold down bolt fixings for 90mm frame to comply with Clause 7.5.12.2 of NZS 3604 and the same anchors will provide a 15 kN fixing for end studs of bracing wall elements.

If you do not achieve your required Construction R-value or fRsi with MAXEdge T105 for 90mm frame, then you can use our alternative T15 MAXEdge which recommends an angled fixing as shown in detail 2 below. 

Where 140mm framing is specified bolts can be installed as per NZS3604 and a specified fixing is not required.


 

Detail 1 - Standard T105mm MAXEdge Detail - Straight Bolt Fixing (90mm Frame)

The T105mm Tapered MAXEdge is a 15mm taper that starts 105mm down from the floor height, which is earlier than our traditional 15 or 20mm tapered edge to allow a straight hold down fixing. In most instances it will hit or surpass the requirements of the building code easily.

Testing Completed with BRANZ October 2023

- Can be used in conjunction with MAXSlab, MAXRaft, MAX85 and MAXRaft Plus where 90mm frame is specified.
- Bolt specification must be either Hilti 10x150 HUS4-H Anchors or M10x140 Bowmac Bluehead Anchors as tested at 900mm centres.
- The same anchors will provide a 15 kN fixing for end studs of bracing wall elements.

Detail 2 - Alternative T15 MAXEdge Details - Angled Bolt Fixing (90mm Frame)

The 15 or 20mm taper for 90mm framing achieves higher fRsi values and is ideal for use on projects that are Homestar rated.

Testing Completed with BRANZ January 2020

- Can be used in conjunction with MAXSlab, MAXRaft, MAX85 and MAXRaft Plus where 90mm frame is specified.
- Bolt specification must be Simpson Strong-Tie TITEN HD THD10160MG screw anchors at 600mm centres or Simpson Strong-Tie AT-HP BLUE anchoring adhesive with M12 5.8 grade stud, 100mm embedment at 600mm crs as Tested.
- The same anchor will provide a 15 kN fixing for end studs of bracing wall elements.

Angled fixing applies to Taper 15mm or 20mm Detail with 90mm framing

MAXEdge Finishing Options

The MAXEdge perimeter insulation will either come to site uncoated or pre-coated depending on the specification.

Option 1 Post Pour Plastering - The MAXEdge perimeter insulation is plastered following the concrete pour. This option gives a premium finish to your slab edge. See more by visiting MAXEdge Finishing.

Option 2 Pre coated MAXEdge - The insulation arrives to site pre-coated and simply requires painting during the build process. Visit our Product Downloads page to see more on the pre-coated option.

Option 3 Pre-coated Kapo Board - KAPO Board is glued to the MAXEdge insulation (either EPS or XPS) following the pour and can be purchased directly through MAXRaft.
