The integrity of the building enclosure – its compatibility and continuity throughout – is critical to:
Integrated design is at the heart of the high-performance, sustainable building. A high-performance building is much more than the myriad of components that are utilized to construct it. Integrated design is the way these construction elements come together to ensure long-term performance of the building enclosure... compatibility, continuity, connectivity.
Tremco Commercial Sealants & Waterproofing has long put performance to the test with testing protocols that surpass industry standards. ASTM E2357 (Standard Test Method for Determining Air Leakage of Air Barrier Assemblies) to include Proglaze ETA Engineered Transition Assembly and the critical transition from the wall assembly to the window assembly to measure air leakage results from joining the assemblies together as well as the air leakage that passes through the assembly alone. This generates critical data that will enable the design team to make sound decisions and ensure long-term sustainability.
As the performance of various sustainable building solutions are tested and proven effective, links to our newest testing and documentation will be added here. With an aggressive testing schedule planned, check back frequently for the latest in solutions to help transform today's buildings into High-Performance Buildings.
