Known principles for the prevention of rain penetration and air leakage are not being applied in practice. States that rain penetration requires the simultaneous presence of water, openings and a force ; the two-stage weathertightening or "open rain screen" separates the control of these factors and allows the production of a weathertight joint under practical conditions. Outlines the causes of air infiltration and gives brief case histories to illustrate the serious problems that can arise from air leakage.
