Unitized Backpan Perimeter Fire Barrier Systems
December 28th @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
Fully understanding the role and value of perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever changing and complex designs cannot be overstated. Small panel sizes, flush sill heights, exposed anchors, and steel backpan designs have made a difficult situation even more critical. 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.
