Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Various control strategies prevent rain from penetrating a building envelope and entering a building assembly. This course compares exterior wall metal cladding systems and takes an in-depth look at the design options, testing, specifications, environmental implications, and the detailing of single-skin metal panel systems used in a pressure-equalized rainscreen (PER) application.

Learning objectives

  • Explore different types of metal panels and how they can affect a building
  • Identify the testing methods established by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) for rainscreen systems
  • Discuss the basics of detailing climate-appropriate single-skin metal panel PER wall assemblies
  • Specify a metal panel with a suitable finish for a single-skin metal panel PER wall assembly to meet a building’s projected cost, thermal control requirements, and maintenance lifecycle needs
