This seminar includes a discussion of the impact of the NFPA 285 Test on buildings using IBC and ASHRAE 90.1 energy code requirements, the parameters and history of NFPA 285, and the definition of what building envelope components are combustible and require NFPA 285 testing by IBC.
There are hundreds of fluid applied air barrier products currently available and they vary greatly in thickness and formulation. As commercial buildings become more energy efficient and complex, the need for a “high performance” fluid air barrier system is increasing. This presentation will discuss some of the key differences and performance advantages of these new high performance air barrier chemical formulations in contrast to traditional fluid applied air barrier formulations.
Reviews the role of continuous air barriers in achieving an airtight building envelope and describes air barrier product properties, installation techniques, system components and typical applications for the main types of air barrier systems.
Provides an overview of air transport mechanisms through the building enclosure and the role of air barriers in preventing uncontrolled airflow.
Reviews the top attributes of sustainable building enclosure design which include energy efficiency, durability and sustainable materials, as well as strategies for achieving these attributes.
This seminar will discuss the impact of the NFPA 285 Test on buildings using IBC and ASHRAE 90.1 energy code requirements, the parameters and history of NFPA 285, and the definition of what building envelope components are combustible and require NFPA 285 testing by IBC. All of these elements combine to integrate NFPA 285 compliant assemblies into building envelope systems.
Advances and Applications (Fluid Applied): This presentation will discuss some of the key differences and performance advantages of these new high-performance air barrier chemical formulations in contrast to traditional fluid applied air barrier formulations.
