Get the latest information available on the performance and durability of the window-wall interface. STP 1484 offers new research, exhaustive testing, and the creation of installation standards which attempt to identify installation methods and construction sequencing, to integrate a variety of fenestration products into a variety of wall claddings.
Ten peer-reviewed papers cover:
Integration of windows or doors with their related interfaceslashings, sealants, claddings, and more
Considerations of weather, exposure, job site conditions
Compatibility or incompatibility of adjacent and integrated materials
Product testing and the testing of installation methods and techniques
Role that permeability plays in the selection of materials
Ability or inability of self-adhered materials to maintain their original adhesion properties, long-term serviceability, and durability.
This new publication provides the vital information you need to write specifications, create or interpret standards, evaluate materials for product selection, and recommend changes to the building codes.
