Fiber-Reinforced Concrete

  • Fiber Cement Panels as Rain Screens Course

    1 LU AIA

    Moisture intrusion in a wall system can be the cause of building defects, as well as health ailments for the building's occupants, making rainscreens a very important tool in water mitigation. This course will review the cause and effects of moisture intrusion, and more specifically the forces that drive rainwater into a building. Identify different rainscreen technologies and ASTM testing standards that measure their performance; discuss fiber cement panels and how they can be used as a rainscreen to reduce moisture build-up, rotting interior walls and mold growth. By the end of the course you will understand basic design approaches and guidelines for installing fiber cement panels as a rainscreen. This course is registered with AIA for 1 CEH. Take the course.
