High Performance Rainscreen Design with Insulated Panels

Webinar On-Demand: This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. This course will summarize how to properly design critical building envelope control layers to protect against the air, water, vapor, and thermal loads to optimize energy efficiency. It also covers traditional multi-component backup wall assemblies and the challenges to achieve energy efficiency, installation, and long term performance. Learners will explore how to design with insulated panel wall systems achieve higher energy performance, faster build speed, and long term resilience. Finally the course covers how insulated metal panel wall systems provide extensive design flexibility while integrating with virtually any noncombustible rainscreen material.

Noise Control in Steel Frame Commercial Building (print course)

Noise control must play an integral role in building design, as successful acoustic design increases comfort, productivity and communication. The best designs incorporate sound into the overall design solution.

This article will examine why noise control is essential in building design and construction. It will compare traditional and damped wall partition designs, describing how the use of constrained-layer damping panels can be used as an alternative to multi-layer gypsum wallboard assemblies to meet and exceed the minimum code requirements.
