10AM - 11AM CT
This course is designed to eliminate the confusion associated with the basics of perimeter fire containment systems. Fully understanding the role and value of tested perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever-changing and complex designs cannot be overstated and understanding the unique challenges of these designs present are critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.
11AM - 12PM CT
This presentation will focus on the need for security glazing to protect people and property from human attacks and severe weather. Laminated glass can provide intrusion resistance, as well as protection from flying glass that occurs after a bomb blast. Bullet resistant laminates are designed specifically to stop bullet penetration and fragmentation. Industry standards for testing and specifying security glazing will be reviewed, including standards for physical attack, bomb blast, ballistics and wind-borne debris protection.
12PM - 1PM CT
Windows and doors are often the weak link when designing a building for protection from location-specific noise pollution.
This course reviews the basics of sound transmission and the industry performance standards for measuring / testing sound transmission loss with components and cladding. The focus will then shift to specific design strategies to achieve the desired acoustical performance for a specific building.
1PM - 2PM CT
Topics discussed include daylighting strategies available through the integration of structural sandwich panels, energy conservation, enhancements, options, form and aesthetics. The many benefits to health, productivity, safety and sustainable design will be discussed, as well as specialty applications including explosion venting, blast resistance, OSHA fall through protection and hurricane resistance.
Basic understanding of daylighting applications in walls, windows, skylights and canopies.
Life Safety applications including ATFP (Anti-Terrorism Force Protection), Wind Borne Debris and Explosion Venting systems. The benefits of natural daylight including human health, learning environments and increased productivity. The positive effect of natural diffused daylighting to circadian rhythm cycles.
2PM - 3PM CT
