Functional Statement:

F61

To resist the ingress of precipitation, water or moisture from the exterior or from the ground.

Objective:

OH1.1, OH1.2, OH1.3

 

APPLICATION:

Protective materials installed to provide protection against precipitation ingress in assemblies exposed to precipitation.
This applies to building materials, components, assemblies and their interfaces described in Sentence 5.1.2.1.(1) that are installed in buildings to which Part 5 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.2.(1) of Division A for application of Part 5].
This also applies to cladding assemblies installed on buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9] where:
  • the cladding assembly is not addressed in Section 9.27., or
  • the cladding assembly does not comply with the prescriptive requirements of Section 9.27.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the installed protective material will provide inadequate protection against precipitation ingress.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • the inadequate control of relative humidity or water accumulation,
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to compromised integrity of environmental separators.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces,
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons, and
  • contact with moisture.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the installed protective material will provide inadequate protection against precipitation ingress, which could lead to deterioration, which could lead to compromised structural integrity of environmental separators or of elements supported or protected by the separators, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.
