MgO Sheathing for Exterior Wall Assemblies in Commercial Wood Frame Projects

11:20 AM - 12:20 PM

Material requirements for exterior sheathing and balancing structural performance with fire-resistance ratings of exterior walls can present unique challenges for wood frame projects. This course investigates the use of MgO sheathing panels for exterior wall applications in wood frame projects of Type III and V Construction. We begin with an overview of the MgO material properties and characteristics of MgO panels that make them uniquely suited for use as exterior sheathing. We’ll discuss how MgO panels meet code requirements for exteriors walls in these applications, including compliance with NFPA 285. Structural performance, specific fire-resistance ratings of assemblies and cladding application is included in this discussion.

Solving the Concrete Moisture Issue: Commercial, Environmental and Health Benefits of Impermeable Concrete and Permanent Impermeable Repair Materials

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

This Program addresses the impact of traditional & impermeable concrete inside & outside the building envelope. It discusses methods to improve durability and consequent sustainability of all concrete applications. It discusses the concrete industries' efforts to lower the carbon footprint. It provides a solution to moisture & flooring problems as well as water and damp-proof concrete. Techniques and materials used to permanently repair concrete are discussed.
