Effective Air Sealing of Separation Walls in Attached Housing
Thursday, July 21, 12:30 p.m. ET
A project team consisting of Newport Partners, the Fire Protection Research Foundation, & Thrive Homebuilders conducted a study supported by the US Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), which evaluated different wall assemblies at a series of attached housing projects while also evaluating regulatory barriers & potential solutions. This study developed an application guide for builders, designers, & code officials that identifies the best strategies for this construction assembly, highlights code/standards barriers, & provides recommendations on steps that jurisdictions can take to address them based on the findings from field evaluations & the assessment of the code. This webinar will present the findings from this research.
