Moisture Control for Durable & Energy Efficient Cold-formed Steel Walls

Used appropriately with other control layers, the thermal control layers (insulation) of a cold-formed steel wall assembly can actually contribute to improved durability and energy efficiency. This presentation looks at five key building science topics together with new code requirements and design tools to help navigate and coordinate building code requirements for moisture control and energy code requirements for insulation. Design examples are included to illustrate how to apply these actionable building science concepts in the process of optimizing code compliance and performance.
