Achieving a High-Performance Air Barrier System

Todd Parrott


Air Barriers are an extremely important component of a high-performance building enclosure system. For the most part, these systems are non-maintainable components and repairs can typically only be made with the removal of the exterior cladding system. To ensure a performing system, proper design, detailing and ultimately the proper installation of these systems is extremely important. You have one chance to get it right. Come learn about important design considerations, how to properly detail critical interfaces, key items to include in your specifications and the proper installation techniques, quality control and testing parameters for a variety of air barrier systems in use today.
