Air Barrier Systems

Air Barrier Systems

Air barriers are systems of materials designed and constructed to control airflow between a conditioned space and an unconditioned space. Air barriers are essential to any building’s overall insulation system. They are the first step in maintaining energy efficiency and improving indoor air quality. Air exchange in and out of a building is a leading cause of escalated energy bills. So, what are air barrier systems meant to do?

Air barrier systems should be:

  • Impermeable to air flow
  • Continuous over the entire building enclosure
  • Able to withstand the forces that may act on them during and after construction
  • Durable over the expected lifetime of the building.
