  • This seminar examines how much energy buildings use from an individual approach to the overall bigger picture. We'll review codes and standards that are currently in effect and soon to be going into effect. We'll discuss integrated design, building envelope performance, climate zones, R-Value requirements and continuous insulation. We'll discuss reasons and incentives for going beyond the code as well as supporting organizations and programs. We'll discuss meeting the continuous insulation requirements and the benefits of using polyiso, e.g. physical properties, fire resistance and specifying.

  • We will discuss the history of Polyiso and how this product is made from raw chemicals to a completed board stock product. This presentation will review what Sustainability’ means and how it is measured, what are the factors involved with ‘Building Longevity’ and how these concepts impact making buildings more energy efficient. We also plan on discussing building envelope performance, R-Value requirements and continuous insulation within our building envelope systems. Another point of discussion will be, how to meet the continuous insulation requirements and the benefits of using polyisocyanurate insulation and what are the physical properties, fire resistance and how to specify it.

  • We will discuss how Polyiso Continuous Insulation will improve the thermal performance of walls of Steel Stud Construction. In addressing the advantages of continuous insulation – we will also address the disadvantages of using steel studs without continuous insulation. We will discuss what Sustainability d how it is measured, including – factors that are involved in addressing Building Longevity – how these concepts impact making buildings more energy efficient. We will look at various types of products that can be used to achieve designs with a perspective that address sustainable construction. Looking towards the future we will discuss the actions being undertaken in conjunction with energy conservation and construction codes, building science organizations and other groups in pushing building envelope design. We will also look at the history of Polyiso and how this product is produced from raw chemicals, creating a completed board stock product.

  • A comprehensive plant tour at our Rmax Facility. Observe the insulation manufacturing process step by step from the initial order to the finished product by observing the raw material used, the manufacturer of the panels on the production line, panel cutting and stacking, panel wrapping and storage.

  • This course is designed to provide an understanding of the importance of a properly designed Air and Water Resistive Barrier System. You will learn the importance of an air barrier system and how a properly designed system can contribute to the environment and improve indoor air quality. You will learn to identify the different types of air barrier systems and where each may be more appropriate. You will learn to design a system to properly control air and water vapor, and how this may differ from one area of the country to another. You will learn how to specify an air barrier system, including the performance criteria for and system, and the code requirements, testing criteria other governing factors.

  • This course outlines the dangers posed by Mother Nature and the science, codes, testing and methods in which to build and combat these forces. In addition, this course addresses the value of continuous insulation to improve the energy conversation of the building. We will also address how proper incorporation of martials including continuous insulation and air and weather-barrier systems will improve indoor air quality and contribute to environmental sustainability.

  • This presentation originates from a research report written by the Applied Building Technology Group called Assessment of Water Vapor Control Methods for Modern Insulated Light-Frame Wall Assemblies. The report is extensive and includes compiled data from test homes, huts, and studies from the US, Canada, and Europe. The presentation utilizes the collected data from the research report in the form of a table to make easy insulation choices to prevent moisture issues. This presentation will first present the Building Science Concepts one needs to understand why things happen the way they do. The attendee will then be able to use that information to make informed decisions on how to design with wood framed construction. The presentation also breaks down some of the findings about wood sheathing and how it has been standing up over the years.

  • This course is designed to provide an understanding of how better construction practices can increase building sustainability and longevity. Discover how POLYISO Insulation Air & WRB Systems contribute to meeting energy code requirements and outperform traditional water resistive barrier materials and construction methods. In addition, learn about the science behind thermal, air and moisture control, in projects of steel stud construction and review building and energy code requirements relative to building envelope design and performance.
