Gravity Fail Safe Fire Protective Smoke Curtains Technology

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

smoke curtain technology, which allows for more open space and natural light (providing LEED credit) in a building while protecting its occupants for safe evacuation by keeping the smoke layer six feet above the finished floor during a fire condition. Our automatic smoke barriers and partitions allow for open corridors in the atrium and are utilized for area separation. We create smoke datums with our technology under NFPA 92B guidelines in conjunction with smoke control to reduce extraction and make up air requirements. In our projects over-seas, our associates use less smoke extraction, and use more curtain systems to create more datums.



We are UL listed under UL 10D Fire Protective Curtains which UL established for our product. We are the only product in the world that holds this designation. We currently hold a UL S label for UL 1784 and a UL oversize report AND UL 864 for our group control panels. We have installed at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Federal Housing Finance Agency, UNC Dental School, MIT Neural and Cognitive Sciences Building, UMASS Integrated Sciences Building, PRINCETON Chemistry Building, FIU School for International and Public Affairs, Max Planck Institute (Florida), PNC Place in Washington, DC among many others and are currently installing at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, as well as several Ground Zero and government installations.

Rigid Insulation Product Knowledge & Uses

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

This course will review an in-depth breakdown of the current uses of rigid insulation in the construction industry. The attendees will learn more about the differences of rigid insulation products and the recommended uses of each product type. Discussion points to include the changes of the current energy codes and the requirements for the use of continuous insulation in the majority of future projects. The participant will be able to better evaluate their current building assemblies and understand the requirements that are dictated by current codes.

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Sound control is a critical element to a building’s design. How an occupant will use the space must be understood in order to deliver a healthy and functional environment free of noise. Is speech privacy important? Is this a learning environment? Does the office open to a manufacturing floor? We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation. But we must not overlook the importance of an acoustic-door assembly. Without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course will review healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. We’ll discuss the elements of the acoustic-door assembly and how the assembly addresses fire-ratings and ADA compliance, contributes to LEED certification and green building, and provides security for classified files and electronic data.

Fire-Retardant-Treated Wood in Today's Building Code

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This session is a discussion of fire-retardant-treated wood's technical characteristics and building code-related applications. Emphasis is placed on the testing and labeling required by the International Building Code. The building code, as with many products, regulates the use of wood in construction. Two broad categories separate materials: combustible and noncombustible. Codes limit the applications of combustible materials on the basis of fire and life safety. The question is then, are there options available to using wood in lieu of a noncombustible material. Fire Retardant Treated Wood (FRTW) provides that option. Codes recognize FRTW for many applications where a noncombustible material is mandated.
