Air barriers create airtightness and help protect against energy loss, water infiltration, and other hazards impacting the durability and resiliency of a building and the comfort and health of its occupants. Climate conditions, temperature, location, and intended use of a building all are factors to consider for the specification and selection of air barriers.
The seventh annual Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) conference and trade show will take place at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, from May 8 to 9. The conference is one of the few events in the world that focuses on air barriers and building airtightness.
According to the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA), there are seven different categories of air barrier assemblies. Each offers advantages depending on a number of factors, including geography, labor considerations, and even the height of the structure.
In modern buildings, there tends to be moderate tolerance for design/construction errors affecting thermal performance, air leakage, and moisture migration. This is primarily due to the typically low interior moisture levels found in these types of projects and seasonal variation in exterior conditions.
