Dryvit’s EWI comprises of an insulation core and outer weatherproof layers that work on a simple premise: insulation is more effective when placed on the exterior of a building. This keeps the building warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
The skin of a Penguin works on the same premise. An inner fat layer provides insulation and an outer layer of feathers provides a wind and waterproof barrier keeping it warm in extreme conditions and cool on a warm day, which helps the penguin regulate its’ temperature.
In more recent years, the penguin is a symbol that we have come to globally associate with climate change and the environment. Given that Dryvit’s energy efficient EWI systems offer such a cost-effective solution to reducing carbon emissions from buildings, the penguin has become an ever more fitting logo for the Dryvit brand.
