The Evolution of Water-Resistive and Air Barriers in Commercial Envelope Construction:

Understanding Integrated Sheathing + WRB-AB System Solutions

Program Description: 

This program examines the evolution of water-resistive and air barriers (WRB-AB) in commercial building envelopes and introduces new, all-in-one, integrated gypsum sheathing + WRB-B systems as alternatives to traditional water and air barrier systems.

Learning Objectives: 

After the program, participants will be able to;

  • Recognize the function of water-resistive barriers and air barriers in a building envelope/enclosure

  • Understand the advantages and/or disadvantages of various WRB-AB systems available

  • Discern the differences between all-in-one (integrated sheathing + WRB-AB) systems versus traditional WRB-AB systems

  • Identify the dissimilarities between two methods of all-in-one systems available in the marketplace today

  • Design for labor, material and installation time savings in future building envelope projects
