Webinar: Building Envelope Design & Air Barrier Performance Level (ASTM E2357 vs. E1677)
Event Details
Date(s): June 14, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM  CST - 1:00 PM  CST

Be prepared when Mother Nature starts Howling!

This webinar describes the air barrier performance requirements for the desired wind load design specifications. There are two accepted performance levels for commercial air barrier systems, determined by the structural design parameters for the building envelope: ASTM E2357 and ASTM E1677.

The webinar is organized in 4 Sections.
1. The first section is a brief review of air leakage and air barriers for air leakage control
2. The second section is a review of air barrier compliance options which include materials, assemblies, and whole building testing  
3. The third section addresses the air barriers performance requirements versus design criteria
4. The final section provides examples of how installation details could impact air barrier performance level 

Learning Objectives:
After attending this seminar, you will be able to:  
1. Understand the impact of air leakage, the importance of air barriers for air leakage control, and the current air barrier codes and standards  
2. Understand the design criteria for air barrier performance and current standards for testing the performance of installed air barriers
3. Learn about the differences between ASTM E1677 and ASTM E2357 air barrier  performance level  
4. Understand how installation details could impact air barrier performance level
