  • Ponding water on a low-sloped roof can greatly reduce the performance and lifespan of the roof membrane. Tapered roof insulation systems reduce or eliminate ponding water when a roof deck does not provide adequate slope. This course describes the benefits of tapered polyisocyanurate insulation and discusses the profiles, panel repeats, and design options available. Also addressed are cricket installation guidelines, tapered roof system average R-values, and specification tips.

  • In this course, you will learn how the continuous insulation requirements have evolved in the IBC/IECC as next generation versions been introduced. We will review the importance of materials testing and how they affect selection, code compliance, and design considerations. Finally, we will discuss how material tests affect design and functionality of a wall assembly and what the performance dynamics of different wall assemblies that incorporate continuous insulation are.

  • This course will explore NFPA 285 Fire Test and why it is important; common concerns encountered with NFPA 285 assembly and installation; different types of CI Options that offer NFPA 285 compliance and the advantages and challenges of CI Board Products in NFPA 285 assemblies.

  • This presentation will focus on the changing energy codes and how they affect commercial wall assemblies. The somewhat confusing concept of continuous insulation (CI)—and how it is used throughout the codes—will be discussed at length. The NFPA 285 fire test and its role in code-compliant wall assemblies will also be discussed for commercial building types I–4. There are many choices of insulation that can be used in commercial wall assemblies. We will discuss polyisocyanurate insulation; its thermal performance, physical properties, and compliance attributes; and how it compares with some of the other types available.
