- Explore how fasteners attached to sheathing become a point of vulnerability during extreme weather events
- Review the differences between standard test methods and the extreme conditions that were introduced by RDH Building Sciences in order to test several cladding fastener options
- Understand the differences between thin-mil and thick-mil fluid-applied versus an integrated WRB-AB sheathing solution
- Discover best practices for cladding attachment options, depending on factors like climate, building form and architectural complexity among others
