"This study was proposed to the external research program of CMHC in response to apparent increases in the volume of building regulations and industry recommendations that appear to be intended to improve ElF system installation quality assurance and to control onsite application. This report outlines the findings of a literature search and series of interviews that were intended to examine allegations of problems that may adversely affect ElF system perfonnance and review solutions developed to address those problems. Aspects of ElF system wall design that may influence the long term performance of Elf systems are discussed in the context of the principles of wall design as developed by the National Research Council of Canada"--Purpose of this study.
