CENTRIA Insulated Metal Panel System Enhanced with New Features The CENTRIA Formawall Insulated Metal Vertical Joint is engineered to be weathertight. All-metal joinery replaces traditional gaskets at the end joints for advanced protection from air and water penetration and a continuous, contempo- rary façade. The Formawall Pressure-Equalized Seal Plate works by equalizing pressure at the end joint, forming a shield against air and water infi ltration. An integral gasket, a vented drain channel and a non-curing butyl seal provide multiple lines of de- fense against moisture infi ltration. ID#103 Vegetative Roof Based on Sustainable Functions FiberTite Roofi ng Solutions, manufactured by Seaman Corporation uses a high- performance single-ply roofi ng membrane. The vegetative roof technology is based on sustainable functions that help manage the quality and quantity of stormwater, increase energy savings and reduce air and water pollution. The system is offered in either a tray or multilayer system. ID#104 Self-Regulating Smart Glass Maximizes Energy Savings, Occupant Comfort SolarSmart is a heat-blocking, self-tinting smart glass that darkens in response to the warmth of the sun to keep interiors cool and comfortable. The hotter the glass surface gets, the darker the glass will tint — providing its occupants with continuous heat and UV blocking throughout the day. Since SolarSmart is solar activated, it requires no power, no wires, no user involvement or sophisticated control systems — allowing for simple installation. Because it is self-regulating, permitting natural daylight to be harvested, it will signifi cantly cut cooling and lighting costs, which in turn will maximize potential energy savings. ID#105 building envelope Spotlight New Barrier System Eliminates Step in Weatherization Process Georgia-Pacific's DensElement Barrier System is a new water-resistive and air barrier system solution for the installation of exte- rior walls. The all-in-one sheathing system integrates into the gypsum sheath- ing panel's core to eliminate an entire step in the typical weatherization process. The system features PROSOCO's R-Guard FastFlash liquid flashing which fills and seals all joints, fasteners and other penetrations to finish the system with no need to fully cover or coat the entire wall.
