Course Title: Solid Surface Innovation in Ventilated Rainscreen Design
AIA Course Number: EXT617
Credits: 1 LU / HSW CE Hour
In this course, we review various aspects of solid surface technology such as the production process, features, benefits and design considerations for this versatile material. While most design professionals know solid surface for interiors, this presentation explores the use of the material in exterior cladding applications. In particular, the audience will gain insight into its use as cladding in a ventilated rainscreen design.
Upon completion of this course, the design professional will be able to:
- Define the types of solid surface materials in the market today to choose the one which best fits their project needs
- Identify traits of a solid surface material in terms of features, benefits, physical/mechanical properties and health/safety considerations
- Discuss designing with solid surface material in terms of shapes, format and color in an exterior cladding application
- Discuss effective ventilated rainscreen design and installation using solid surface material
