Air Barrier Installation and Detailing Demo

October 27, 2023

On Thursday, October 26th AR Chambers Supply hosted Mike Payne, Sr. Project Manager at Building Envelope Consultants and Scientists, Jeff Konkle from Prosoco, and Dave Parker from PA Passive House for a Prosoco R-Guard Air/Weather Barrier System Demonstration.

Mike. P discussed weather barrier codes, best practices and formal QC techniques. He also showcased different QC methods (bubble guy, dry mil testing.)  Dave P. commented on air-tightness in Passive House construction.

The second part was hands-on for architects.  Jeff K. review fluid-applied weather barrier installations. He had attendees apply material, perform penetration detailing, transitions, through wall flashing and “field QC” (wet mil gauges, pull tests, etc).

It was a great event and we were happy to have them in-house.
