The increasing demand for high performance, energy-efficient buildings has led to the evolution of building enclosure designs that incorporate durability, longevity, and thermal and weather protection. Architects and building owners are now required to meet stringent energy codes which has resulted in a systems approach to designing the building envelope components. As a result, fire protection and life safety issues have significantly affected the development of the fire codes and has become integral with recent International Building Code (IBC) updates.
