WEBINAR: Solving Performance Demands Using Wood Fiber Insulation
Wed November 15 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 LU | HSW
Presented by TIMBERHP
Couse description: Wood fiber insulation is now being produced in America. Learn how wood fiber insulation can help provide high performance above grade insulation products to create wind-tight, vapor-open assemblies offering stable, long-term R-values, improved temperature stability, and robust sound protection. A review of current insulation available today and an introduction to wood fiber insulation as a readily available alternative solution. A deep dive into current code compliant assemblies with the introduction of wood fiber insulation and how it fits into the wall assembly to provide a vapor open alternative. Discussion of the current state of building materials carbon emissions impact and how Life Cycle Analysis help reveal impact areas that need to be addressed. Carbon sequestration can help dramatically reduce carbon emissions and wood fiber insulation offers help.
- Working knowledge of insulation products on the market today and the impact of new building coded on the building envelope and its impact on the environment.
- Understanding of wood fiber insulation, various forms and practical applications. Also includes a knowledge of positive sustainability implications: fire, bugs and water and why wood fiber stands up to these field liabilities and perform to code.
- Ability to explain the importance of code compliance and how climate zone impacts assembly design. Understand thermal bridging and how to address the condition, especially in cold regions.
- Knowledge of Life Cycle Analysis modeling and how it is used to help better understand building materials impact on the environment. A strong understanding of Embodied Carbon Emissions and how product selection moving forward can help reduce its impact on the environment.
