2021 AIA Live Webinar Series

 

Architectural Aluminum Framing for Extreme Conditions

 

Date: Thursday, April 22, 2021

Time: 12:00:00 PM EST - 01:00:00 PM EDT

Learning Credit: 1 LU/HSW

Course Number: K_ILFF_116

 

Course Description:

When designing a typical commercial building, there are many different aluminum framing systems to choose from. However, when extreme conditions and the building’s end use are considered, your selection becomes complicated. 

 

Locations prone to seismic activity need systems that can negate story drift, while coastal areas require hurricane-resistant or impact-rated systems. Developments near airports, highways or trains need to address acoustic performance. Many government buildings demand blast mitigation systems, while other regions 
require designs that can withstand tornadoes.  

 

Our course will investigate these extreme conditions, discover the codes that drive them, and introduce solutions. 

 

What we will learn:

  • Recognize how building codes influence protective glazing system requirements  
  • Understand the need to specify products that comply with relevant protective codes  
  • Be familiar with product tests and procedures to ensure code compliance 
  • Know how aluminum framing systems comply with codes for extreme conditions

 Preventable Curtain Wall Failure Webinar

 

Learning Credit: 1 LU/HSW

Course Number: K_ILDE_114

 

Course Description:

When an installed curtain wall fails on a commercial project, it can be both costly and time consuming. The widespread impact and repercussions could last years, yet most failures are tracked to simple, preventable mistakes. Misunderstanding how a system performs with specific project conditions and how they impact the system or failing to follow the manufacturer’s fabrication and installation guidelines can lead to severe failures.

 

All stakeholders in a commercial project want to see it completed successfully and stand the test of time. Our presentation takes a detailed look at common causes of failures, illustrating how they could be prevented by identifying conditions early, to help ensure the health and welfare of a commercial building and occupants.

 

What we will learn:

  • Influence of wind load on curtain wall design/selection
  • Importance of properly securing curtain wall to surround condition
  • Importance of following manufacturer’s installation instructions addressing internal seals
  • Understanding how curtain wall performs and installation for proper performance

Thermal Barriers In Aluminum Fenestration Systems

 

Date: Thursday, February 18, 2021

Time: 12:00:00 PM EST - 01:00:00 PM EST

 

Register now!

  

 

 

Learning Credit: 1 LU/HSW

Course Number: K_ILFF_100

 

Course Description:

Architects are faced with many challenges today, including the demand for more energy efficient products to be used in the building envelope. With many options in aluminum frame and IGU performance available, our presentation reviews the benefits of adding thermal breaks, how they work and how they are evaluated in meeting the energy demands of individual projects.

 

What we will learn:

  • Recognize and use the benefits of a thermal barrier in aluminum fenestration systems.
  • Recognize available thermal barrier technology options and how each one works.
  • Identify the test procedures and standards used to evaluate system performance.
  • Examine the benefits of properly leveraging the connection between the interior and exterior environments.
