EVENT THEME

Detailing High-Performance Facades: Cladding Decisions and Sealant Strategies

Today’s high-performance facade standards require the deft balancing of aesthetics, technical detailing, and the demands of the client and local building regulations. This workshop will discuss both material and technical solutions to meet those standards. Experts will be on hand to lead tutorials on the most recent innovations in rainscreen cladding, sealant solutions, and much more. Attendees will leave with a greater knowledge of material applications at the cutting-edge of energy performance and code compliance, all while learning of attractive solutions for clients and end users.

What are thermal breaks, and how do they work? This session explores the main methods of adding thermal breaks into aluminum frames. We will cover how thermal barriers work and the various thermal barrier technology options that are available. We will discuss how architects can use different combinations to meet the energy demands of each project and code requirement.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize and use the benefits of a thermal barrier in aluminum fenestration systems
  • Recognize available thermal barrier technology options and how each one works
  • Identify the test procedures and standards used to evaluate system performance
  • Examine the benefits of properly leveraging the connection between interior and exterior environments
