Incorporating the Forgotten Thermal Benefits of Brick

Presented by the Brick Industry Association & Sponsored by Belden Brick
August 18, 2021 | 12:00-1:00 PM EST

While frequently chosen for aesthetics and durability, clay brick is not often considered when energy efficiency is a primary concern, even though it historically played a significant role in occupant comfort before the widespread use of HVAC systems. This course discusses the basics of heat transfer, relevant energy code provisions for walls, and how current research by the National Brick Research Center demonstrates the role that brick veneer can play in meeting or exceeding energy requirements in modern wall assemblies.
