Mission Impossible: Air Barrier Connections
March 10 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
This presentation will help you gain an understanding of how poor transitions can result in reduced energy efficiency, as well as increase the risk of water infiltration and condensation. Learn how transitions impact building enclosure performance and how compatibility issues impact the options available for good transitions.
- Become aware of the compatibility issues between the building enclosure air barrier components.
- Demonstrate ways to reduce the risk of water and air infiltration at transitions.
- Review and discuss the areas with highest potential for air and water issues.
- Understand how the air barrier components transition.
