In recent years, the construction industry has adopted standards and practices to use more insulation in buildings. This has been driven by both government and private initiatives to improve building energy efficiency. High-performance insulation is crucial for the achievement of these objectives.
“Polyisocyanurate (Polyiso) Insulation for Commercial Exterior Wall Assemblies” discusses the physical and performance properties of polyiso foam board insulation—a commercially-established, cost-effective technology that is a key component in today’s energy efficient buildings. Design professionals can learn more by taking the free, self-paced course compiled by experts at Carlisle Coatings & Waterproofing and hosted by AECDaily.
Upon course completion, students will be able to:
* List the basic characteristics and important physical properties of polyiso foam board insulation.
* Describe the track record and market adoption of polyiso insulation in building construction applications.
* Explain the benefits afforded by polyiso insulation when used in exterior wall assemblies.
* List the important elements of successful installation of polyiso insulation in exterior wall assemblies.
The course contains Sustainable Design (SD) information, is available 24 hours per day, seven days a week. All from the comfort of a favorite chair, students can receive 1.5 hours of continuing education credit, which is automatically reported to numerous organizations in the United States and Canada.
