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 presentation will focus on recent advances and trends in structural glass technology. We will cover the design of curved glass applications, design options for jumbo glass systems, high-efficiency double skin facades, and impact-resistant glazing of jumbo glass applications.
