Elevator Technology where it`s been, where it`s going

10:15 am - 11:15 am

With urbanization on the rise, the vertical transportation industry is challenged more than ever to provide eco‐efficient, cost‐saving, and space‐saving solutions. This session will cover the history of elevator technology and compare conventional applications with today's technological advancements, enabling attendees to critique the risks and disadvantages of dated technology and identify the advantages of newer technology. In particular, attendees will learn about both recent developments and future trends concerning machine‐room‐less (MRL) elevators. The presentation will address design benefits, installation and ownership costs, and LEED contributions. Learning Objectives: - ANALYZE THE RISKS AND DRAWBACKS ASSOCIATED WITH TRADITIONAL ELEVATOR TECHNOLOGY - EXPLAIN THE DEVELOPMENT AND FUNCTIONALITY OF MRL ELEVATORS - EVALUATE THE COST AND SPACE SAVINGS ASSOCIATED WITH MRL ELEVATORS ALONG WITH THEIR ADVANTAGES FOR SUSTAINABILITY - IDENTIFY THE FUTURE TRENDS IN ELEVATOR TECHNOLOGY

Introductions to coatings

2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

You don't have to be an architect or facility manager to know that various environments put every building material and surface through some of the most rigorous, day-to-day durability challenges. But, if you are part of the team specifying these materials and surfaces, it helps to know which finishes are the most sustainable, weather resistant to the elements of the selected environment, and which will be easiest to maintain for the duration of the buildings life. The architectural industry most often relies on two types of finishes-anodize and paint. Both can offer a long-lasting finish on building materials and surfaces, but each has its own characteristics inherent in its appliion. As an architect, specifier, contractor, or other member of the building community, Linetec's presentation will help you better understand field performance of architectural Kynar 500 (PVDF) paints, baked enamels, powder coating and anodize finishes including strengths, weaknesses , weatherability and sustainability. The anodize, paint and powder coat processes, specifications and performances are explained to the audience. In addition, a summary comparison of all three finish types, referencing AAMA specifications, are discussed during the program. Whether building a new facility, renovating an existing one or simply updating a specific area, taking the care in selecting the finish for your aluminum building products and surfaces will assure the longest lifespan for your project. Much more than enhancing appearance, your finish specification can make the difference in durability and lasting performance for many years ahead.
