The purpose of this session will focus on what an engineered façade systems should provide. Project teams are seeking a complete single source system from the studs to exterior finish. We will discuss types of testing and approvals Façade systems offer to meet national and international building codes. FM, UL, CAN UL, NFPA and others. Further discussion will be on performance warranties for leakage, system integrity, material performance from 1-20 years similar to a roofing warranty.
From the designer’s role, where you place the insulation and how do you attach the cladding can be the most critical decision when working with a building façade. We will explore both questions from a building science perspective to give clarity and certainty this is done properly.
