Breakthrough Envelope Sealing Technology Receives HIVE 50 Award For Its Transformative Impact On High-Performance Building

AeroBarrier represents the best of what the housing industry has to offer.

AeroBarrier® has been selected as a 2018 recipient of the HIVE 50 award, a top industry distinction that honors the people, products and processes that are leading the charge to inspire creativity, improve performance, and explore better ways to build. AeroBarrier, a breakthrough building envelope sealing technology, was chosen for its industry-changing approach to envelope sealing and its potential impact on the construction of high-performance homes and buildings.

The 2018 HIVE Awards will be presented at the third-annual HIVE Conference being held in Austin, Texas on November 28-29. Presented by Hanley Wood LLC, the conference brings together the building industry’s brightest minds to explore the latest advances in building design, strategy and profitability. Recipients of the HIVE 50 awards are chosen by a panel of distinguished judges upon a thorough review of industry achievements throughout the year.

“The innovations and technologies we honor with the HIVE 50 represent the absolute best of what the housing industry has to offer,” said Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood. “These products are the systems and solutions that allow optimal performance in the structures we build – key advances in building technology that will translate into increased efficiency and responsiveness to reinvent the places we call home.”

This year’s list of HIVE 50 honorees is separated into five categories including building technology, capital, design, intel and strategy. AeroBarrier technology was selected as a winner in the “building technology” category.

About AeroBarrier Technology

AeroBarrier, an innovative building envelope sealing technology, uses an aerosolized sealing process that simultaneously measures and seals building envelope leaks in residential, multi-family, and commercial buildings. A self-guided, computer-controlled sealing system, AeroBarrier replaces the traditional multi-product / multi-process approach to envelope sealing with a single application that provides a more consistent, less expensive way to seal the entire building envelope. Designed for use by builders, AeroBarrier makes it easy and economical to seal the building envelope to any desired level of tightness, including IECC, Energy Star, LEED or passive house standards. AeroBarrier takes the guesswork out of building envelope sealing and provides guaranteed results.

“AeroBarrier represents a potential sea change in the way homes and buildings are constructed,” said Mark Modera, principal inventor, Sempra Energy chair in energy efficiency, professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Director of the Western Cooling Efficiency Center at University of California Davis. “With AeroBarrier, envelope sealing – a routine that is typically a long, expensive, labor-intensive process – can now be completed in a matter of hours.”
