Performance Requirements for Sheathing Boards used in Exterior Through-Wall Solutions

There are many choices when it comes to the selection of sheathing boards used in external walls.

This CPD will guide you through the impacts those choices can have on how your project meets the performance and compliance challenges facing the modern built environment. Following the Grenfell Disaster in 2017, fire regulations have arguably never been more in the spotlight. Material selection and specification is integral to a robust fire strategy. High quality build specifications and material choices can not only minimise building damage but can also save lives.

We need to be mindful of not compromising other essential element of design and functionality of any building. If external sheathing products are chosen carefully, they can help to ensure that buildings will be easier to construct, safe and sustainable.
