FR05 - Glazing Systems: Innies, Outies and Tweenies

Friday, October 11 from 7:45 AM to 9:00 AM « Back

How your exterior wall is water managed with continuous exterior insulation affects how you locate glazing systems in the plane of the wall.  Is the glazing system located towards the interior of the assembly (an “innie”)?  Is the glazing system located towards the exterior of the assembly (an “outie”)?  Or is it located in the middle of the assembly (a “tweenie”)?  How are water and air management addressed without causing issues relating to thermal bridging, structure and fire?

Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Undertake water management (ie. flashing) of glazing systems based on their location in the wall assembly
2. Recognize how to address air leakage of glazing systems based on their location in the wall assembly
3. Discuss how to avoid thermal bridging of glazing systems based on their location in the wall assembly
4. Identify structural and fire issues of glazing systems based on their location in the wall assembly
