Henry products have been used in various buildings and architectural projects around the world. Read to learn more about how these products were used, and how they may be able to assist you if you are working on a similar project.
After 30 years of weathering the elements of the Ozark Mountains, the roof of the Evangel University Ashcroft Activities Center deteriorated greatly. In hopes of preserving the roof for another 30 years, the University turned to Henry Company for the application of a premium elastomeric roof coating.
Protecting the treasures within the museum from wind, rain, humidity, dust, allergens, toxic pollutants, ground water, car exhaust and even hurricane force winds, providing a critical layer of protection that safeguards its contents, and provides a long and healthy life for the building itself.
Architects and builders in Seattle, WA battled the continuing rise of energy costs by working to create the “tightest” envelope to minimize air leakage and energy use. Build Urban used BlueskinVP as a key element of the residential structure in order to meet the core design principles of the Built Green Program. BlueskinVP contributed to preventing condensation in the wall assembly, a common cause of mold, mildew and structural decay.
In even the most well insulated homes, as much as 40% of the energy used to condition the interior spaces can be lost to uncontrolled airflow. Unlike traditional building wraps that resist only water and moisture, BlueskinVP also prevents energy-wasting air leakage, enabling significant energy savings. This case study compares two buildings and the effective implementation of BlueskinVP.
Designing a Net-Zero home (NZEB) is not without challenges. One of the most important considerations is how to design an air tight building envelope that provides both a reliable, long lasting solution to air tightness and one that provides a durable barrier against wind-driven rain and moisture intrusion. When seeking this level of performance, the designers at Stubbs Muldrow Herin Architecture looked to BlueskinVP™ from Henry Company.
The architect was faced with the challenge of creating an extensive green roof that would retain storm water runoff, while supporting the high-tech needs of a modern information hub and preserving the library’s fragile historical collections.
