  • Improving the Mind and Body with Wall Protection (Print)

    1 LU

    This article originally appeared in the December 2013 issue of Architect Magazine. Historically, designers of buildings have been challenged when trying to incorporate pleasing visual images into the design because the demands of heavily trafficked areas often require wall protection to minimize damage to the structure. Today, new technology allows for the printing of imagery on traditionally drab wall protection products, specifically rigid sheets. By combining the positive elements of attractive imagery with the durability and healthful attributes of wall protection, designers can enhance the built environment and improve client satisfaction while creating a safer and more healthful indoor environment for everyone. 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.
