Webinar Tackles Wall Systems that Work

THURSDAY, MAY 22, 2014

Overcoming product compatibility challenges to produce a functional masonry wall design is the focus of an upcoming free webinar hosted by Durability + Design.

Today’s Masonry Wall: A Synergy Between Systems,” a D+D Educational Series Webinar, will be presented at 11 a.m.  ET May 28.

Participants are eligible for one AIA LU credit.

Various products, including air barrier systems, thru-wall flashings, and reinforcement/anchoring systems, must work together to achieve a functioning masonry wall system.

This webinar will discuss the importance of sourcing all materials from a single supplier and designating a single contractor to ensure compatibility of all building processes.

Several key points will be covered:

  • Air and vapor barrier basics (fluid-applied versus sheet-applied products as well as permeable versus non-permeable);
  • Using anchoring systems successfully with air and vapor barriers;
  • Advantages, disadvantages and compatibility of various flashing materials; and
  • Limiting mold problems with moisture management systems.

Participants may register here free.
