Types of “Z-Girt” Sub-Framing Material Z-girts and fasteners play crucial roles within the building envelope: Z-girts serve as attachment points for cladding, assist in establishing thermal breaks, and ensure a level surface for cladding installation, while fasteners maintain structural integrity by anchoring the Z-girt in place. This sub-framing is expected to withstand the rigors of...

Introduction Screw pull-out, or the phenomenon where a screw is extracted from its bind due to stress or strain, can significantly compromise the integrity of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in construction. Although FRP’s inherent characteristics, like its high strength-to-weight ratio, make it a preferred choice in challenging construction scenarios, the propensity for screw pull-out is...

Introduction In order to ensure the safety of a building, it is important to fire test all materials used in its construction. The NFPA 285 standard test method analyzes the fire performance, flammability, and fire propagation characteristics of an exterior wall assembly containing combustible components. This test is commonly required by local jurisdictions when approving...
