Polyiso

Apr 09 2020To 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

Building Envelope

Oct 05 2018Building Envelope As a thermal barrier the building envelope plays a critical role in regulating interior temperatures and helps to determine the amount of energy required to establish a comfortable indoor environment In commercial buildings the space heating cooling and ventilation that maintain that environment account for 34 percent of

AquaKor™ Technology Transforms Building Envelope

Building a Better Envelope Conventional WRB-AB membrane systems can be time and labor intensive With the industry's labor shortage top of mind Georgia-Pacific Gypsum engineers and chemists went to the drawing board to develop a new all all-in-one water-resistive barrier air barrier that eliminates the need for a separate building wrap fluid-applied or peel-n-stick system

Codes and Standards

Codes and Standards Building codes Building codes are performance and prescriptive requirements for building construction—including roof systems—that are established and enforced by state or local government agencies to ensure public safety health and welfare in commercial and industrial buildings

Solving the Building Envelope Challenge

Today solutions for the building envelope need to meet exacting standards on two equally important fronts – long-term performance and enduring aesthetic appeal In this article CENTRIA demonstrates how its products meet the standard in two different scenarios – construction of a new hospital in Asheville North Carolina and the addition to a popular museum in Pittsburgh
