Insulation Characteristics


This course will describe insulation and its associated applications in commercial low-slope roofing related to energy-efficient design, fire resistance, code compliance, and enhancing building resiliency.


Learning Objectives:
  1. Explain insulation's attributes related to its use in energy-efficient roof systems.
  2. Understand thermal resistance values and design best practices for providing long-term thermal efficiency of the building envelope.
  3. Design a roof system's thermal envelope to ensure the safety and well-being of its occupants through effective environmental separation.
  4. Discuss application solutions to meet building code requirements for energy efficiency and fire resistance.
