Division 7 in Canada, also known as the building envelope, delves into the technical specifications behind a building's exterior. Here, functionality reigns supreme. Key considerations include:

  • Moisture management: This involves specifying air and water barriers to prevent leaks, mold growth, and structural damage.

  • Thermal performance: Insulation selection and placement are crucial for energy efficiency and occupant comfort in Canada's diverse climate.

  • Fire safety: Materials and assemblies must meet fire resistance codes to ensure occupant safety and prevent fire spread.

  • Durability: Cladding materials and installation methods need to withstand harsh weather conditions and maintain their aesthetic appeal over time.

  • Ventilation: Proper ventilation strategies are essential to prevent moisture buildup, ensure healthy indoor air quality, and improve energy efficiency.


By focusing on these technical aspects, KLAD ensures buildings are not only beautiful but also functional, sustainable, and provide a safe and comfortable environment for occupants.
