Howard Deck, President of ICYNENE, discusses the benefits of using high performance ICYNENE spray foam insulation in buildings and homes. Watch the video now.
In the design process few decisions have as many long-term implications for the performance and durability of a building as the choice of insulation. For the designer, builder and owner, insulation can and should play a multifaceted role that extends far beyond those noticeable or expected benefits, such as energy savings, comfort and enhanced indoor air quality. Insulation, in combination with good detailing and quality control, can play a preventive role by minimizing the chances that things could go wrong.
A unique opportunity is at hand for commercial architects to shape a healthier and more energy efficient future of commercial building design and construction. Commercial buildings account for 18% of the nation’s energy use and nearly 18% of our greenhouse gas emissions. Improving their performance is a key priority for building owners and operators. Low-density spray foam insulation like ICYNENE can play a major role in this effort, offering compelling reasons to go beyond the code to create buildings that exceed expectations for comfort, performance and functionality.
Air and Air Vapor Barriers can play a significant role in building efficiency. This one-hour learning unit examines ways in which moisture enters a building. You will be able to explain how moisture management has affected buildings and be able to define and discuss what is meant by air leakage and vapor diffusion.
Fiberglass and mineral wool insulation is installed in 90% of homes in the United States. Whether you are building a new home or remodeling an older home, insulating the walls to maximize a home's energy performance will not only increase the total comfort of the home, but will help reduce home energy costs.
This webcast reviews system performance, application flexibility and value versatility. Also covered are details such as proper R-value selection, critical installation details and typical installation pitfalls.
This guide will help contractors and homeowners identify ways to make their homes more comfortable, more energy efficient, and healthier to live in. Contractors are encouraged to use this document, prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy Building America Program, to explain the value of insulation options and measures to their customers.
DAP Draftstop 812 is a low pressure, polyurethane foam designed to fill gaps around windows and doors. It is moisture resistant and will not crack or split.
This course will identify what stone wool insulation is and how it is produced, as well as some of its uses in commercial applications, with emphasis on rainscreen cladding design and in exterior cavity walls. We will discuss key benefits of this insulating material when used in the field versus other traditional insulating materials currently used in the North American market. Finally, we will address NFPA 285 requirements relating to cavity insulation and provide updates on new ASHRAE 90.1 2013 continuous cavity insulation requirements.
Stone wool is often specified for its superior properties such as energy efficiency, sustainability, fire protection, water resistance and sound control. Commercial stone wool products can help to protect property, extend building life cycles and enhance occupant comfort, and are designed to make construction faster and easier. This course will identify what stone wool insulation is and how it is produced, and will examine commercial applications of the product. We will discuss key benefits of this insulating material when used in the field versus some of the other insulating materials traditionally used in the North American market today.
