Insulation has come a long way from bulky foams, fiberglass and mineral fiber products. Today’s rigid insulation board technologies offer architects products that can optimize energy efficiency, moisture resistance and fire performance – and provide thinner walls to increase leasable space and ROI. Specific rigid insulation board technologies are suitable for foundations, floors, walls, and soffits so architects can select the best insulation type for each part of a project.
In this course, learners will be able to better understand NFPA compliance – from determining what needs tested to the testing procedures themselves. Other codes and tests related to fire safety will be reviewed as well. Different types of cladding and insulation will be examined in terms of materials, components, and fire safety. Finally, two fire case studies will be presented so that learners can evaluate the performance of those buildings.
