The Role of Commercial Steel Doors in Resilient Design

8:00 am - 9:00 am

Resiliency is a growing necessity. It is important to understand the impacts on the built environment resulting from natural and manmade disasters and disturbances and to design for those impacts now. Presented in this course is an overview of the benefits of using steel doors as part of a resilient design strategy for applications requiring resistance to blasts, tornadoes, and ballistics.

Mineral Stains and Paints – Durable, Breathable products that will last a lifetime on your building’s exterior

10:15 am - 11:15 am

Mineral Stains & Paints are highly durable, breathable coatings designed for exterior brick, concrete, stone, cement renders and claddings. Developed in Germany in the 1800s, these products have been widely used across Europe ever since. Unlike latex/acrylic paints, Mineral Stains & Paints do not trap moisture in and leave the surface fully breathable. They crystallize inside the surface and form a highly durable chemical bond – lifespans of over 100 years with no maintenance have been achieved. The products are non-toxic, made of 95% natural minerals and will never fade in UV light.

Benefits of Ultra Low Permeability Concrete in the Building Envelope – An Integral Approach.

2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

The exceptional durability of portland cement concrete is a major reason why it is the world’s most widely used construction material. But material limitations, design and construction practices, and severe exposure conditions can cause concrete to deteriorate, which may result in aesthetic, functional, or structural problems. The Portland Cement Association prescribes proper concrete coverage of reinforcing steel and a Low Permeability concrete mix design as the primary goals for “Best Practice”. A talented, seasoned contractor is the answer to the first…..Vapor Lock enhanced concrete may be a reasonable answer to the second.
