Metal Building Systems
Figure 3.4.11 shows two examples of insulated panel joints in metal building systems (AAMA).
Both joints employ pressure-equalized cavities with an outer rainscreen and an inner air seal.
Various arrangements of the joint are used to prevent water intrusion due to gravity, capillary action
and kinetic energy.
