CRAN Presents: Robust Walls with Continuous Foam Plastic Insulation

May 31, 2017

Foam plastic insulation (polyiso board and spray polyurethane foam) can be used in code-approvable wall assemblies that work in cold, warm, marine and humid climates. Architects will be able to create alternatives to vapor permeable wall assemblies that address three main concerns: NFPA 285 flame spread tests, mitigating moisture retention within walls, and delivering higher insulating performance with greater levels of comfort. Presentation by Gary Gardner. CMU CFA 214 – this is the large crit/class space on the 2nd floor of College of Fine Arts building on the north end of the building (opposite end from SoA Main Office). Feel free to bring your lunch. Kindly RSVP to mc@marycerrone.com
