Results from laboratory tests of wind driven rain tightness in more than 100 facades and weather barriers
Paper i proceeding, 2014
important for the facades of multi-storey buildings, as leakages are added together downwards. If there are also flaws in the weather barrier there is an increased risk of leakage within the structure. Results from the tests of the weather barriers exposed to rain are similar to conclusions derived for facades. The consequence of leakage through the façade and to the structure has not been included in this study.
One can rarely visually determine whether façade detail solutions are rain tight before the test. It is hardly possible to determine the rain tightness of details only by theoretical assessment of drawings.
