Formation of the detail of building skins – energy gains and loss. Threats

Bogdan Siedlecki


The modern market of construction materials allows a more perfect execution of the external structure of buildings shortening simultaneously the time of their realization; however, the selection of technology is not indifferent to future users, independently of the function of buildings, the manner of their use, technological equipment and the amount of users. Microclimatic requirements aside, the technical reliability of building skins is one of most important issues. The uncontrolled penetration of water through the building skin or the existence of thermal bridges are the cause of the appearance of biological corrosion of building components as well as their equipment. Comparative tests of project solutions relating to analyses of damage in buildings, helps improve the situation and reduces the threats to which buildings and their users can be exposed.
