-- Thermafiber has partnered with AEC Daily to offer a second online CEU course. The new course is focused on the benefits of mineral wool as continuous insulation (ci). Unlike foam products, mineral wool is non-combustible, permeable and economical. Mineral wool is commonly used to insulate masonry cavities and open joint facade systems. The use of mineral wool as continuous insulation has been widely accepted in Europe for decades and it continues to gain popularity in North America.
"Continuous insulation has become an important topic for architects and specifiers," says Angie Ogino, Technical Services Manager. "The new ASHRAE 90.1 codes require some level of continuous insulation in most climate zones. We want to provide the tools to educate the building community on the benefits that mineral wool can provide in these applications."
The free online CEU course is approved as a Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credit. The course is qualified by AIA, USGBC/GBCI, NAHB and 12 other organizations for 1 CE Hour.
Thermafiber, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of premium mineral wool insulation products for commercial, residential, industrial and marine applications. Thermafiber commercial insulation products are specified 4-to-1 over other brands and have been installed in 6 of the 10 tallest buildings in the world.
