  • Building Green with Metal Roofs and Walls

    1.5 LU HSW

    This course will explore in depth the concept of cool metal roofs and walls while explaining their relationship to current energy code and guideline compliance. The environmental benefits of metal roofs and walls will also be explained, including contributions to numerous LEED® points. Additional case studies of various cool metal roof materials will be presented to illustrate how they can help lower energy use in a building. Take the course.

  • Retrofit Re-Roofing with Metal Roof Systems: Bringing New Life to Old Buildings with Energy-Efficient Applications and Sustainable Products

    1 LU HSW

    This course is an overview of re-roofing using metal roofing supported by an engineered framing or sub-framing system, also known as retrofit. The course will cover typical applications for metal roof and wall systems during the retrofitting process, identify building characteristics in which metal can resolve retrofitting issues of utility and design and explain the overall benefits of metal roof and wall systems for existing buildings, including energy savings. Take the course.

  • Metal Roofs and Walls from A (Aluminum) to Z (Zinc)

    1 LU

    This course will give you an understanding of the different types of metal roof and wall systems used in commercial buildings. It will examine different roof slopes, wall configurations and materials and how they present design opportunities for architectural elements. The course will also discuss the sustainability of metal roof and wall systems, as well as their economic impact. The end of the course will focus on a study that compared metal roof systems to other types of products in terms of life cycle costs, maintenance costs and owner satisfaction. Take the course.

  • Comparing Traditional Steel Studs and EQ Steel Studs Course

    1 LU HSW/SD

    Equivalent or “EQ” studs have been in the metal framing industry since 2005. This presentation will highlight the similarities and differences between traditional and EQ steel stud products which will provide designers the background to properly evaluate the products. It will examine the ASTM specification requirements that govern EQ studs, how performance requirements are met, what to look for in an evaluation report, and how EQ studs are listed in UL assemblies. This course is registered with AIA for 1 HSW/SD hour. Take the course.

  • A Closer Look at Metal Wall Systems

    By the end of this course you will be able to recognize how moisture and thermal problems arise in a building. You will understand why different climatic parts of the country need different exterior wall system assemblies. You will also understand what types of exterior wall systems deliver superior R-values and be able to list the potential problems caused by improper wall system product selection, location and installation. You will be aware of the sustainability features of exterior metal wall systems and finally, you will have a clear understanding of the value of “integrated accessories.” This program is approved by the AIA for 1 HSW CEH. Take the course.
