Development of a moisture safe connection for stud walls

Abstract
Moisture penetration around windows and doors is a problem with serious consequences for stud walls and is a common problem regardless of facade systems. The problem has received considerable focus in recent times, as buildings using ETICS (External thermal insulation composite systems) on stud walls have been damaged by penetrating water. In the present paper a robust moisture safe prefabricated window connection for stud walls is proposed. The connector is a device which is linking the facade, stud wall and window and facilitates water sealing. As a result a prototype has been developed and tested in accordance with standard practice. The new window connection is easy to be mounted and is suitable for facades consisting of ETICS, wood... (More)
