Architectural Products

In Canadian construction, Division 7 refers to building envelope materials – the exterior shell of a building that keeps the elements out and controls the indoor environment. Architects focus on this division to specify products that meet aesthetic and performance needs. Key elements include:

  • Cladding: Exterior finishes like stone, metal panels, or stucco.

  • Flashing: Waterproofing membranes that direct water away from the building.

  • Insulation: Materials that minimize heat transfer.

  • Air Barriers: Membranes that control air leakage.

  • Roofing: Materials that protect the building from the top down.

Selecting materials from KLAD considers factors like climate, building code compliance, and desired aesthetics.
