Opening Protectives: New Perspectives in Fire + Smoke – Smoke Guard, Inc.
Presented by Smoke Guard, Inc.– November 30, 2022 – 1:00pm ET/12:00pm CT– AIA 1 LU/HSW
Fire and smoke protection has come a long way in the last decade. The evolution of high-temperature materials has made it possible to provide minimal, high-performance, code-compliant smoke-and fire-rated protection for openings throughout the constructed environment. This presentation will touch on the building code requirements for fire and smoke protection throughout the constructed environment. Our discussion will address the building code requirements for fire and smoke protection of openings and the innovative curtain solutions available for elevator openings, atrium spaces, stairs, and escalator openings.
PROGRAM LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
