Eco Sound Barrier features a unique combination of customization, quality, and affordability. See how this eco-friendly solution is the perfect choice for your project.
There are several issues with the use of foam sheathing as a water resistive barrier (WRB) and air barrier - even though there are standards that if passed allow it to qualify as a WRB. Issues such as dimensional instability and poor water management that are intrinsic with foam products can be remedied by using a wrap product as the water resistive barrier and to provide continuity at air barrier details.

Learn how the DuPontâ¢ TyvekÂ® Fluid Applied System seamlessly integrates with all kinds of substrates and how it was able to meet the specific challenges of a Texas climate.
Applied in a one-coat application by spraying or pressure rolling, DuPontâ¢ TyvekÂ® Fluid Applied Weather Barrier delivers superior protection, offers excellent durability and saves time by providing two to three times the coverage of competitive products per gallon.
What are the potential consequences of unintentional vapor barriers? Why is vapor permeance of building envelope layers relevant to moisture management and long term durability? Durability of the building enclosure is part of a sustainable building design. A designer can significantly affect the service life of multi-component assemblies through materials selection, placement of materials within the building assemblies, or design detailing. Find out what it all means.
The energy efficiency improvement requirements in current and future building and energy codes will affect nearly every aspect of home construction. Weâre here to help you navigate through it all. At DuPont, weâre using our building science to bring you innovative products and service that not only help you meet and exceed code, but also help you continue to build high-quality homes. Let us guide you through.
Insulated metal panel systems (IMPs) are a pre-manufactured version of a âperfect wallâ due to the location of their control layers. They are a truly universal wall and roof system that can be used in any climate zone, can be used as a rainscreen barrier wall system, and can be integrated with other wall and roof systems while still maintaining proper control layer continuity.
This course will cover the function of the four control layers and how insulated metal panels provide all four control layers in a single component, and will describe the advantages of insulated metal panels compared to alternative building systems. Finally, the course will discuss how insulated metal panel systems can be used with supplementary cavity insulation and examine design options for aesthetics.
Reduce noise transmission up to 90%! SilentFX®, featuring Green Glue® and M2Tech® technology, is a noise-reducing mold resistant gypsum board specifically designed for systems requiring high STC ratings.
Architectural veneer and cast stone are among the fastest growing decorative building products on the market. The aesthetics and variety of these masonry products have improved significantly, providing an attractive finished look at a lower cost that is hard to differentiate from authentic natural stone.
This course will discuss the composition, performance, and environmental benefits of architectural cast stone and veneers with an integral finish. You will learn how architectural cast stone and veneers with an integral finish save money and improve performance, as well as design and installation considerations for the product.
Designers and Architects will be able to explain how acoustics work in buildings as a foundational understanding to selecting acoustical products for building.
