Continuing Education  

1 AIA LU / 1 HSW Credit

“Designing with Fire Rated Glass” by SAFTI FIRST is a must-have for all design professionals. This on-demand program empowers you to choose the correct code compliant glazing product for every fire-rated application. We show you how to:

 

  • Understand safety glazing requirements and how they apply to various fire rated glazing products;
  • Identify the difference between fire protective vs. fire resistive glazing based on the code and performance requirements of the application, not the manufacturer’s product testing;
  • Choose the correct and code approved fire rated glazing products based on current IBC code requirements and applications;
  • Learn how today’s advanced fire rated glazing products can enhance a building’s overall design and performance.

 1 AIA LU / 1 HSW Credit

 

Architects have always pushed the limits of what building products can do, and fire rated glazing is no exception. This program shows how fire rated glazing has evolved from small door lites and openings using wired glass and ceramics to floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall, multi-tasking fire resistive glazing systems. Case studies showing these innovative design applications in real-world settings will be used to show participants how architects continue to push the boundaries of what fire rated glass can do.

“Designing with Fire Rated Glass” by SAFTI FIRST is a must-have for all design professionals. This on-demand program empowers you to choose the correct code compliant glazing product for every fire-rated application. With the advent of new and technologically-advanced fire rated glazing products in the market today, there is much confusion on which products are appropriate for certain applications. This program is designed help code officials and fire marshals determine the correct and code approved fire rated glazing product based on current fire/safety glazing test standards and IBC Chapter 7 code requirements. It will also provide non-proprietary information on various fire rated glazing products available today to make it easier for code officials and fire marshals to identify them during plan review or when they are installed in the field. We show you how to:

 

  • Understand safety glazing requirements and how they apply to various fire rated glazing products;
  • Identify the difference between fire protective vs. fire resistive glazing based on the code and performance requirements of the application, not the manufacturer’s product testing;
  • Choose the correct and code approved fire rated glazing products based on current IBC code requirements and applications;
