Air Barrier Rough Opening Flashing Combinations – 5 Years Later
January 28 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
An update to the 2016 ABAA Conference session “Air Barrier Rough Opening Flashing Combinations” will be provided as a continued effort of evaluating trends used in the building industry. What does the evolution of flashing methods and materials indicate to us based on the past five years? Developments in sheet flashing, fluid-applied membranes, hybrid systems, and integral sheathing boards and air barrier assemblies will be examined as they form waterproofing systems around rough openings. The future of air barrier flashing systems will also be considered as prefabricated and modular building construction gain popularity.
- Summarize the air barrier rough opening flashing combinations highlighted in the 2016 ABAA Conference session.
- Discuss the past five years of evolution related to air barrier flashing systems and details surrounding typical fenestration assemblies.
- Analyze current building trends as they impact rough opening flashing methods and materials.
- Theorize the future of air barrier rough opening flashing within the building industry.
