Tuesday, May 24 | 1 LU/HSW

The course describes the origins and reasons for the increasing use of continuous insulation in commercial exterior walls. Included is the air barrier, moisture barrier, and thermal insulation aspects of the wall system. This understanding is then combined with the design objectives of rain screen wall systems to outline the design issues that must be addressed in rain screen wall systems with continuous insulation. Several methods which can solve these design issues are presented. Attendees will understand how to design more energy efficient and robust rain screen wall assemblies. 


While the webinars are free, registration (on right) is required.
