This webinar will educate attendees about building longevity and sustainability, and how these concepts impact making buildings more energy-efficient. The course examines how foil-faced polyiso continuous insulation can function as multiple control layers, providing air and water-resistive barriers, in addition to providing a thermal control layer and meeting NFPA 285 fire code standards. Additionally, the course reviews building codes and standards regarding how to meet the continuous insulation requirements in steel stud building envelope designs, the benefits of using polyisocyanurate insulation in wall assemblies and how to specify it to meet these requirements for optimal energy performance and design efficiency.
