Simply defined, the building envelope is the exterior or shell of a building that repels the elements. At Klasse we can support your project with our range of external sheathing boards, insulation and accessories.
At its most complex definition, it’s an engineering system that meshes elements such as structural integrity, moisture control, temperature control, and air pressure boundaries into a single design strategy. It is the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building including the resistance to air, water, heat, light, and noise transfer.
While the building envelope is a silhouette of sorts, it’s important to remember that these are compounded layers. Each part of the building envelope must be thought of as a collection of smaller pieces working together to provide structural support
