Air barriers are materials placed on the wall assembly of the structure and are designed to control the movement of air within the structure.
Kyle Miller, a product manager for SOPREMA, will deliver a live webinar for Building Enclosure and the Continuing Education Center that explores the science behind wall systems and the tangible benefits of incorporating this technology into building structures.
Join him at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 28, from the comfort of your home or office to hear “Wall Systems and Design: Understanding the Critical Elements of Air & Vapor Barriers.”
This webcast will emphasize the differences between air barriers and vapor barriers and which is the best, given climate and wall assembly. Plus, attendees can earn one (1) AIA LU/HSW credit, one (1) IIBEC CEH or 0.1 IACET CEU for participating.
In this webinar, you will learn to:
- Explore the science of wall systems, including the potential impact on energy savings and the beneficial health effects of controlling moisture migration into living environments.
- Determine the proper wall system to use for a given climate in order to limit air and moisture movement and ensure the comfort and safety of building occupants.
- Define wall system terms, specifically the difference between an air barrier and a vapor barrier.
- Explore the detrimental impact of moisture infiltration into building materials and the safety concerns inherent in unsafe structures.
Miller joined SOPREMA’s technical support team in 2016 before joining the product management team in 2020. He’s now responsible for supporting SOPREMA’s building envelope waterproofing product lines. He is a United States Army veteran with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and 16 years of commercial construction materials experience as both a product manager and a technical services representative.
