IIBEC New England Chapter: GAF Science presents – “Turning up the Heat on Cold Storage Roof Design”
Cold storage buildings are designed to keep heat out, instead of keeping heat in during cold
weather. But is it that simple? we’ll review the importance of unique construction assemblies, the
primary control layers, and how we need to think about them in this inside-out scenario to reduce
the risk of condensation.
Learning Objectives include:
- Discuss the risks associated with common cold storage design and installation practices.
- Review the importance of air, vapor, and thermal control layer continuity.
- Assess typical cold storage details to evaluate control layer continuity.
- Review common installation and detailing errors during construction.
