You only have one chance to get it right; is your air barrier system designed and installed correctly?
Air barriers are an extremely important component of a high performance building enclosure system. For the most part, these systems are nonmaintainable components and repairs can typically only be made with the removal of the exterior cladding system. To ensure a performing system, the proper design, detailing and ultimately the proper installation of these systems are extremely important. You have one chance to get it right.
Come learn about important design considerations, how to properly detail critical interfaces, the key items to include in your specifications and the proper installation techniques, and quality control and testing parameters for a variety of air barrier systems in use today. This topic will leave you with a solid fundamental understanding whether you design, construct or inspect building enclosures.
– You will be able to describe the importance of proper construction sequencing, coordination of sub-trades, testing and inspection criteria.
– You will be able to identify the typical installation requirements of a variety of air barrier materials and assemblies, and common installation issues observed in the field.
– You will be able to discuss how air barriers are part of a high performance building and how they control air movement, moisture movement, improve insulation performance and reduce energy needs of buildings.
– You will be able to explain general installation guidelines for six common air barrier assemblies.
