Facades are the outward character of any project, and consequently require a methodology that looks beyond just structural innovation. Specifically, museums and civic institutions have a role to play in serving the community through creating spaces that amaze and delight. Hear from some of the most cutting edge and beautiful new projects that embrace their role as the face of their communities.

This course provides an update on the advancements in perimeter fire containment systems for galvanized backpan assemblies. The value of understanding the performance of galvanized backpan assemblies in today’s ever changing complex designs cannot be overstated. By identifying the unique challenges that these assemblies present in the design phase, you can eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.

Learning Objectives
  • Define the role and value of perimeter fire containment systems in today’s ever changing and  complex galvanized backpan assembly designs.
  • Identify the code requirements for perimeter fire protection.
  • Describe how galvanized backpan assemblies perform per ASTM E 2307 testing and the importance of independent third-party testing for perimeter fire containment systems.
  • Recognize the complexity of aluminum framed galvanized backpan designs and how to address them
