Exterior Air Barriers for Masonry 

Exterior air barrier systems help control problems caused by air infiltration and exfiltration in buildings. Properly installed air barriers on masonry walls significantly reduce building energy consumption and moisture-related problems caused by condensation. In this course, learn the differences between air barriers, vapor barriers, and water-resistive barriers to better inform design and construction decisions. Discover key factors in material interface and proper control of penetrations in the installation.

Masonry Rainscreen Wall Systems

Thin clad open-jointed rainscreen walls are becoming popular building enclosures to fulfill contemporary architectural design parameters. Attendees will learn how challenging problems of water, air, vapor, and energy control concepts are integrated for successful and innovative exterior wall solutions. Attendees will learn how masonry rainscreens can be achieved with sub-frame systems to support thin lightweight masonry units such as natural stone, terra cotta, brick, porcelain stone, calcium silicate, glass-fiber reinforced concrete, and high-pressure laminates. Learn how cohesive design of rainscreen wall assemblies and insights into construction guidelines and installation techniques can enhance project durability and energy control. Photos of recent local rainscreen projects will also be viewed and discussed in this presentation.
