Learning Objectives

1. Understand what energy codes apply in your region, and how the requirements demand higher effective thermal performance from walls that previous standards.

2. Understand the non-linear effect that highly conductive wall components have on the total effective wall R-value.

3. Understand how current conventional wall assemblies compare from a thermal point of view.

4. Become aware of several conventional and state- of-the-art proprietary approaches that have been used in the past year to solve these issues and reduce costs.

Very informative. I've used cascadia on projects in the past, so it was helpful to understand how they help improve my envelope performance.

Nick

Really good info

Alexander

Great information. I've used this clip system before and I am a big fan.

Todd

Thank you.

Paul

Good info on exterior walls.

Chris

Very informative

William

Great class, really informative

Catherine

I found this overview of fiberglass spacers and their use,including methods of attachment most informative. It definitely adds to the architect’s ability to study their use for future project. Thank You!

Raymond R.

great

Edward

Enjoyed it very much, good information

Chris

very informative for thermal bridging and how to design envelope properly

Aavart

Very informative!

Christina

Very informative

Jonathan

Very infomative.

Anthony

Very great to be presented with this information about the clips. I have not experienced them on any projects but will keep them in mind for future needs. Thanks!

David

great platform

Dane

Excellent presentation. Very well done.

David

Thanks for this... very informative

Derreck

Informative

Joan

Great

Dan

Great presentation

Shane

Good information to know.

Margarita

Impressive comparisons

Haig

clear presentation

Helen

I learned a lot about thermal spacers that I didn't know before because I don't design these types of systems.

David

Great webinar!

Alisa

Interesting

Alex

Very good code analysis. Thank you, PHF

Phillip

I thought the presentation was very well done - clear and thorough information for practical application

susan

Fantastic course- I learned alot

Richard

Very informative video, of Cascadia clips and energy impact & benefits

Ryan

Well done, interesting!

Robert

Good presentation overall, but would have liked to see some discussion on hybrid walls (using both ci and cavity insulation) to achieve ASHRAE 90.1 wall performance - it was only briefly mentioned at the end). Also, there was too much emphasis on a proprietary product.

Jeffrey

It was ok

Sam

Fabulous

Mohammed

Good information - well presented

Bob

Good presentation - fiberglass spacers are an intriguing solution to thermal bridging problem

Dan

Informative presentation.

Ryan

great webinar i liked that he showed where and how to use the calculators

Harold

Reasonable explanation of the use of a fairly innovative product

WALTER

informative course. Thanks.

Erik

Very informative course

ROBERTO

Very Interesting.

Regina

This class seems like an update to an older class. This is much better.

Effective Performance of the Building Enclosure - Exterior Walls

FREE

Today, new buildings must meet the ASHRAE requirements for thermal performance. This is a tough objective, since documented proof is required. Effective R-values must be met, not just nominal values, which means that high conductivity materials that cause thermal bridges must be considered in the modelling and calculations.

Often, meeting ASHRAE’s challenging prescriptive compliance is not even enough; some designers look to walls to make up for thermal performance shortfalls from other parts of the building enclosure – such as high glazing area percentages. Many of today’s conventional wall assemblies fall short of even basic compliance, causing larger, thicker, and more costly assemblies than ever before.

Learn what current wall assemblies are getting closest to the target performance levels, what the code– prescribed targets are for your region, and what some innovative companies and designers are doing to solve this issue, both with conventional and proprietary approaches, while saving cost at the same time.
