  • This course presents the complete design approach to rainscreens and explains why rainscreens are an important topic for the building envelope and enclosures. This course emphasizes the use of control layers to maximize the performance of a drained, backed ventilated rainscreen system for both new and existing buildings. The audience will be able to identify different rainscreen technologies and understand why complete approach is beneficial to a building’s performance, through compatibility among the assembly components. They will also learn the relationship of control layers of the exterior wall assembly for occupant health and safety. Finally, the course will review this design approach using real-world project examples.

  • This course examines the use of opaque glass as a façade material in a drained and back ventilated rainscreen system. Highlighted within will be the design consideration and benefits thereof when designing with and specifying opaque glass rainscreen. The importance of the building science principle of exterior wall assembly control layers, and the role they play in providing occupant health and safety will be emphasized for use with opaque glass, open-joint, drained and back ventilated complete rainscreen systems. Presentation will also address sustainability, safety and durability benefits that are associated with properly designed and manufactured opaque glass panels. while providing an understanding of required test criteria and typical test results when opaque glass panel are used within an open-joint, drained and back ventilated complete rainscreen system
