Insulated Metal Panels: The Perfect Envelope Solution
March 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
This course reduces a relatively complex subject into practical concepts for the building designer.
Review the physics of building envelopes, including hygrothermal loads, control layers, climate zones and cladding functions.
Study the importance of control layer continuity at wall, roof, and slab connections.
Look at how IMPs perform the same functions as multi-component wall systems through the use of panels joints, sealants and an insulating core.
Describe the concept of the “Perfect/Universal Wall,” and how to utilize the proper ordering of wall components to greatly simplify wall design in all climate zones.
This course also touches on Energy codes, including their impact on the use of “Perfect/Universal Wall” designs.
