    Compression-Seal Technology: A Sustainable Solution for High-Performance Windows and Doors (PRINT COURSE)

    Recent changes in energy standards and codes, and federal and voluntary initiatives, are transforming the entire building landscape. In the past, a variety of different state and local codes have existed but there is now a trend towards increasing the standardization of even more stringent codes. Window and door systems require increasingly higher performance in order to achieve the new codes, standards and mandates.

    Architects and engineers will need to identify and specify high-performance window systems that meet the new energy performance criteria. High-performance windows and doors with compression-seal technology deliver solutions for energy, noise, security, blast, comfort and other challenges.Enroll

    Understanding the Benefits of Cellular PVC Rails, Pergolas and Gutters

    This course will offer a basic understanding of the benefits of specifying cellular PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) railing systems, pergolas and gutters for residential construction projects. Railing systems in residential construction and remodeling have long been considered both decorative and functional however options have been historically limited to architects. Traditional railing materials like natural lumber, vinyl, and composite materials have been the standard choices available for years, but these materials pose several challenges in aesthetics, durability, affordability, and limited design options. Today railing systems can be created using cellular PVC which offers many advantages over traditional railing.Enroll
