This course provides details and information in exterior facade applications using porcelain panels. Provides knowledge on sustainability values in the material itself and installation process and also gives a full understanding of design possibilities.
Today’s high performance building enclosures demand high performance fire protection! Backpan designs create unique challenges that make UL test coverage even more critical! Fully understanding the role and value of perimeter fire barrier systems for backpans in today’s ever changing and complex designs cannot be overstated.. As the industry changes almost on a monthly basis, understanding how to maintain the integrity of a non-rated curtain wall system for up to 4 hours is critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements during construction. Key topics are outlined below and will be discussed in detail incorporating PowerPoint & video.
This course explores an advanced insulated metal composite building envelope system, components that have been engineered to integrate with the system—including windows, daylighting panels, sunshades, and louvers—and how the IMP system and integrated components combined to create a high-performance building envelope.
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.
An automated window/vent façade can provide a wide range of benefits to a building design, such as, ADA compliance and integration with a fire life safety system for smoke exhaust, but here we will specifically be discussing the application of using the automated façade to provide a natural/hybrid ventilation system. Are you ready to bring fresh air into your building project, in an intelligently controlled manner? Participate here to understand key benefits, design guidelines, technology required and how to show the system in your project documents.
