A brief but detailed look at Airtightness
Achieving good levels of airtightness is a vitally important performance characteristic in high quality buildings that strive to be low energy, nZEB compliant or qualified to Passive House standards. Airtight building solutions, balanced with an appropriate and effective ventilation strategy helps to manage moisture risks, improving the comfort, health and well-being of the building occupants and the durability of the building fabric. As part of the Technical Academy’s new series of online training, this 90-minute presentation titled 'A brief but detailed look at Airtightness' will primarily cover a practical overview of the key detailing methods that can be adopted when installing the ISOVER Vario range of intelligent airtightness and moisture management membranes and tapes.
The presentation will provide a short background to the requirements of current regulations and information on how the correct application of airtightness as part of good building installation practices can help to eliminate condensation risks. It will primarily focus on the practical techniques required to maintain airtightness detailing around items that penetrate the primary airtightness membrane. Practical demonstrations of how to detail cables, pipes, joists and windows will all be included as part of the webinar.
