Aluflam – Commercial Fire Rated Aluminum Glazing Systems http://www.hanleywooduniversity.com – Search “Aluflam

 
     
 

This course will help educate the architect about alternative fire-rated window, door, and vision or glass wall materials currently available in commercial construction. The course will illustrate how a group of specialty glazing systems is gaining increasing popularity by answering two important architectural design needs: the requirement to establish code mandated life safety in a building versus the need to provide daylighting, aesthetics, and overall value for occupants and building owners. At the convergence of these opposing building design requirements are fire-rated aluminum glazing systems – a technology that has evolved from 100 years of experience with glass products for fire protection use.

The learning unit will summarize the history of this evolution and compare some of the different designs that are available to the architect today. It will also explore examples of how fire-rated aluminum glazing systems can be incorporated while addressing some of the common code considerations.

Pella/EFCO Commercial Solutions - Building Retrofits: Getting the Whole Picture on Window Replacement -  http://www.hanleywooduniversity.com – Search “Pella

 
     
 

When undertaking a significant energy retrofit project, architects employ various tools to help them successfully identify potential areas for improvement. Some of the most valuable assets in an architect’s toolbox are companies that provide building analysis. A building analysis service team that can completely test, measure, and document the gaps and opportunities for energy savings in a building will provide the architect with a wealth of information and resources needed to successfully complete the project. However, when it comes to windows, traditional building analysis services often fail to deliver a complete evaluation of the building, and miss several of the key components that can impact energy use. Besides the energy efficiency rating of the window - other considerations like occupant comfort and air tightness should be included when designing a window replacement strategy during a retrofit project. Architects who choose a building analysis service that provides a complete evaluation of the windows and fenestration in the building will have better information, more options, and a greater chance of creating a successful energy efficient design that provides a faster return-on-investment for property owners.
