Rainscreens, Barrier Walls & The Insulated Metal Panel Solution
This course provides an overview of insulated metal wall panels (IMPs) used as barrier walls behind various rainscreen systems, with a discussion on the performance advantages of IMP barrier walls for air, water, vapor and thermal management.
Water / Stormwater Management
Health, Safety and Welfare
Recognize the different forces that drive water through a wall assembly, such as gravity, kinetic energy, surface tension, and capillary action.
Analyze the various types of wall systems including “perfect” barrier walls, mass/storage walls, rainscreens, and insulated metal panels.
Differentiate between vapor barriers, vapor retarders, and air/water barriers and how each manages vapor diffusion.
Examine the advantages of insulated metal panels as barrier walls for rainscreens.
