Recent BRANZ research has shed new light on how evaporative drying in wall cavities depends on cavity dimensions, vent sizes and climate.
A BRANZ program has the answers for those keen to understand how vents in cavity walls help keep walls dry. By using this knowledge, keeping it simple and following the 4Ds – drying, deflection, drainage and durability – walls will be weathertight.
BRANZ is expanding on previous weathertightness research with a new multi-disciplinary programme looking at how buildings manage contaminants, including moisture.
The BRANZ Appraisal process can verify that a wall cladding system is compliant and will be fit for purpose.
