Course description: Weather barriers have long been understood as essential to construction projects to provide resistance to air and water. New technologies for weather-resistant barriers (WRBs) that allow for more water drainage, better air flow and resistance to UV, moisture and other weather-induced issues have been successfully tested. This course looks at the evolution of barriers and provides in-depth discussion of the latest barrier systems, their testing methods and the outcomes, which include better sustainability and higher levels of occupant comfort, health and safety.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how 360-degree drainage barrier technology promotes durability and sustainability by improving the building envelope.
  • List five tests for which these new barrier technologies have successfully met standards.
  • Explain how better air barriers lead to occupant health and sustainability.
  • Discuss the issue of surfactants and how new barrier technology avoids them, offering a more sustainable project and better occupant health and well-being.
