Event description

Description

The presentation is divided into two parts. Part 1 addresses the building code and Part 2 addresses design.

Part 1 individually addresses the four principal aspects of Environmental Separation that are applicable to EIFS: Heat Transfer; Air Leakage; Vapour Diffusion; and Precipitation. This part of the presentation also delves into the Fire Protection Articles applicable to EIFS, most notably Non-Combustible Construction, Spatial Separation, and Exposure Protection.

Part 2 addresses designing and detailing considerations with special attention to interfaces with other building elements, termination points, expansion joints, and drainage. This part of the presentation also addresses impact resistance, aesthetic reveals, and decorative mouldings.

The presentation wraps up with an outline of the EQI EIFS Quality Assurance Program (QAP), which is an initiative of the EIFS Council of Canada (ECC).

Attendees will acquire an understanding of EIFS as a viable option to other cladding systems, they will learn the value of placing the primary resistance to heat transfer, air leakage, and condensation control outboard of the structure, and they will understand how EIFS meets the fire protection objectives of the model building code. The three-dimensional colour illustrations will enable attendees to visualize how these systems can be integrated into their designs.
