Made of lightweight composite materials, this new technology allows for high cost savings over traditional precast barriers. View this video to learn about all the benefits and hear some highlights from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission's installation.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is the first to use innovative new product. Read how the the PA Turnpike chose the CENTRIA's Eco Sound Barrier materials and the resulting savings.
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.

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.

Acoustic Considerations and Door Systems in Healthcare, Hospitality, Education, and Office Facilities
An architect that designs buildings with acoustics in mind will create better environments for the end user, improving everything from patient healthcare outcomes to student reading and test scores. However, a room is only as good as its weakest link, and while walls and ceilings often are discussed when it comes to acoustics, door systems seldom are.
Improving acoustics in commercial and institutional buildings can benefit occupants within healthcare, hospitality, education, and office environments. This course will discuss how door systems specifically play a vital acoustic role within each sector.
