Commercial Webinar – Commercial Air Barriers-3 options for Compliance
This course will cover Massachusetts 9th Edition energy code requirements for commercial building air barriers, including those in ASHRAE 90.1-2016 and the 2018 IECC. The course will clarify these requirements for better specification by designers and easier review by code enforcement officials. The course is organized around examples that show differences between systems-based, assembly-based, and testing-based compliance options. This introductory course will provide background for a subsequent and more advanced air barrier strategy module.
1- Examine the basic requirements for commercial building air barriers in the Massachusetts 9th Edition and reference 2018 IECC and ASHRAE 90.1‐2016.
2- Understand the benefits of the air barrier systems to the environment, building owner, and occupants
3- Discuss performance test standards relating to air barrier systems, including the NFPA 285 fire test.
4- Determine what complies as a performance-based air barrier system and how to enforce that requirement
