  • The Devil is in the Details

    In this course, you will learn that designing a roofing system for long-term performance requires long-term thinking about the details incorporated in a metal roof system. The presentation provides information regarding proper design to prevent possible infiltration from the roof system into the building. It also works as a guide when designing a roof to allow for proper water runoff.

  • Metal Building Envelope Design Best Practices: Advantages and Benefits of Horizontal Insulated Metal Panels

    Horizontal IMPs are two single skin metal panels on either side of a factory-foamed-in-place core. There are two membranes, exterior and interior, and the foam core. The exterior membrane functions as the water,air, and vapor control layer. The interior membrane provides another layer of air and vapor control, and the foam core provides a layer of thermal control. IMPs can be used in any climate or environmental condition, making them adaptable to many building design projects across different climate zones.
