The brick veneer steel-stud system, a popular exterior wall for apartments and condominiums, has proven to be prone to air leakage and cavity condensation. This document describes a new remedial measure called the "Dynamic Buffer Zone" (DBZ) concept. A DBZ system, which heats outdoor air and pumps it into exterior wall cavities, can prevent and control wall condensation and related moisture damage.
