Course Title: Incorporating Pest Barriers into the Building Envelope
Course number: IPO07A
AIA Provider: Polyguard Products, Inc.
Presenter: John Muncaster
The building envelope has proven its value in controlling energy loss and moisture. But why not design the envelope to also act as a pest barrier? Research beginning in 2000 has proven that there are several materials which can block termites, insects, and other pests from entry to a structure. A tested and proven insect barrier sealant with elastomeric properties can: 1. Seal off almost all pest entry points, and 2. Stretch over the myriad gaps, crevices, and cracks which occur in all structures from differential movement of building components. By drastically reducing the opportunity for pest entry, there can be a significant reduction in pesticides needed to eliminate the pests.
1. Explain the amount of pretreatment pesticides currently in use.
2. Describe the numerous ways pests enter structures.
3. Explain the interactions between state pest control regulators and building code officials in new
construction pest control considerations.
4. Discuss several new materials and design alternatives to incorporate pest barriers into the building
5. Explain three new levels of pest barriers, ranging from low to premium in cost, for specifiers to
6. Discuss LEED credits applicable to the new material and design alternatives.
