  • Specifying Door Systems with Increased Energy Efficiency and Greater Resistance to Air and Water Infiltration

    1 LU AIA/HSW

    Integrated door components are design to work together as a complete system. They help to reduce the risk of air and water infiltration, while improving performance and energy efficiency. By using an integrated door system, it helps to minimize callbacks and makes handling any warranty issues easier. Finally, using an integrated door system allows for a true "system warranty" instead of individual component warranties. Take the course.

  • Fire House Door Operators and UL325 Compliance

    1 LU HSW

    Most users of commercial garage doors assume that because there are so many options to choose from, that it will be an easy decision to select the exact one needed. However, this assumption is far from true, due to the variation in types of commercial door openers and the tough standards they must meet. The variety of options can make the choice even more confusing, especially when looking at fire house doors. This course will take a look at the different types of operators available for fire house doors, and review the benefits of selecting the right operator for a fire house. Take the course.

  • Impact Rated Doors for Severe Weather Events

    1 LU AIA/HSW

    When the new Florida Building Code became law earlier this year, door manufacturers had already started beefing up their impact-rated models. Their goal: to create, test and certify doors to meet the most stringent wind and impact code requirements in the nation. In vulnerable areas, exterior impact rated doors serve as critical envelope components that help keep a home safe during violent wind events. This article reviews damages of past hurricanes, advances in Florida Building Code, and how impact-rated fiberglass doors can protect a home. This program is registered with AIA for 1 HSW hour. Take the course.

  • Reducing Water in the Home by Choosing High Performance Door Components – For Builders

    This course takes an in-depth look at the “house as a system” approach and will focus on how that construction approach can make a more comfortable and healthy environment for the occupants. This course will look to define the components that make up a door frame assembly, and then continue to discuss potential weaknesses that they all have. The course then looks at examples of door frame failure and shows some problems that can follow. This program is intended for builders and is not registered for continuing education credit. Take the course.

  • Water Management and Exterior Door Frames

    This program is registered with the AIA for 1 CEH. You will be able to describe how a complete and well-sealed building envelope helps make the home more durable, sustainable, and healthy for the occupants. We will also continue to discuss how moisture enters the home and the significant issues this moisture can cause, such as poor indoor air quality, pests, and potential rot. This course will look specifically at how a traditional wood door frame system can be vulnerable to moisture issues and are not as successful as newer door frame types. It will wrap up by looking at composite materials used in door frame construction and their benefits. Take the course.

  • Commercial Door Operators: A UL 325 2010 Safety Mandate Review

    Most users of commercial garage doors assume that because there are so many options to choose from, that it will be an easy decision to select the exact one needed. However, this assumption is far from true, due to the variation in types of commercial door openers and the tough standards they must meet. The variety of options can make the choice even more confusing. By the end of this learning unit, you will be able to list the different types of commercial door operators available and identify the types of operators for commercial door operators. You will be able to describe the importance of photo eyes and their placement. Finally, you will be able to define the UL 325 Code and its importance. Take the course.

  • Harmonizing with History: Window Solutions for Historically Sensitive Settings

    This learning unit will present common challenges that architects face for projects requiring historically accurate window design or the replacement of historic windows -- or both. Using case studies drawn from U.S. universities, K-12 schools and municipalities with issues of historic sensitivity, the course reviews a number of considerations for both matching historic styles as well as ensuring efficient, modern-day performance. Solutions to the typical window challenges are detailed through the case study projects and their technical resolution. Using real-life case studies, the course will show how to: match existing window profiles and materials; ensure energy-efficient performance; support sustainability goals or LEED certification in new buildings or in existing building upgrades in historic settings. We’ll also examine methods for reducing costs and scheduling needs Take the course.
