Polyiso - The Next Generation Air & Water Resistive Barrier
Event Description

To educate about ‘Building Longevity and Sustainability’ and how these concepts impact making buildings more energy efficient. The course examines how foil-faced polyiso continuous insulation can function as multiple control layers, providing Air and Water Resistive Barriers, in addition to providing a thermal control layer, and meeting NFPA 285 fire code standards. Additionally, the course reviews building codes and standards regarding how to meet the continuous insulation requirements in steel stud building envelope designs, and the benefits of using polyisocyanurate insulation in wall assemblies, and how to specify it to meet these requirements for optimal energy performance and design efficiency.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand Building Sustainability and Longevity
  2. Learn About the Science Behind Thermal, Air and Moisture Control for Steel Stud Construction
  3. Interpret the Code Requirements for Building Envelope Design and Performance
  4. Discover How POLYISO Meets Requirements and Outperforms Traditional Methods for Optimum Control
