This course will help educate the architect about alternative fire-rated window, door, and vision or glass wall materials currently available in commercial construction. The course will illustrate how a group of specialty glazing systems is gaining increasing popularity by answering two important architectural design needs: the requirement to establish code mandated life safety in a building versus the need to provide transparency, daylighting, aesthetics, and overall value for occupants and building owners. At the convergence of these opposing building design requirements are fire-rated aluminum glazing systems – a technology that has evolved from100 years of experience with glass products for fire protection use. The learning unit will summarize the history of this evolution and compare some of the different designs that are available to the architect today. It will also explore examples of how fire-rated aluminum glazing systems can be incorporated while addressing some of the common code considerations.
