Advanced Perimeter Fire Containment Systems for Vertical Notched Curtain Wall Systems

November 2nd @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

This course provides an overview on the advancements in perimeter fire containment systems for vertical notched curtain wall systems. The value of understanding the performance of vertical notched systems in today’s ever-changing complex designs cannot be overstated. By identifying the unique challenges that these assemblies present in the design phase, you can eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.

Learning Objective 1:
Define the role and value of perimeter fire containment systems in today’s ever changing and complex curtain wall designs.

Learning Objective 2:
Identify the code requirements for perimeter fire protection.

Learning Objective 3:
Describe how vertical notched curtain wall assemblies perform per ASTM E 2307 testing and the importance of independent third-party testing for perimeter fire containment systems.

Learning Objective 4:
Recognize the complexity of vertical notched curtain wall assemblies and how to address them.
