Event Details

Building Enclosure Council - Cleveland Presents:

The State of the Interface:
Achieving Building Enclosure Performance


In an effort to combine design aesthetics with performance goals, energy efficiency, sustainable practices and value, the industry constantly searches for new approaches to the interface of materials, assemblies and systems in the building enclosure. The window-to-wall interface is the classic design challenge. This presentation reviews successful (and not so successful) de- tails at this interface and illustrates how proper (and improper) testing can be used to evaluate these details.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the primary function of the control layers required in developing a window-to-wall interface detail to achieve high performance & long term durability.
  • Learn of code changes that demand the window-to-wall interface evolves to address the challenges of continuous insulation and air barriers.
  • Learn how window and insulation location can achieve high performance & how to apply the principles of high performance design to the window-to-wall interface.
  • Understand how performance testing verifies system interfaces and which tests are appropriate for which systems.
