Between changing weather conditions and heavy equipment back and forth down corridors, your project’s resiliency depends on specifying sound building materials.

This course addresses critical knowledge needed to understand the role expansion joint systems perform within your projects as they relate to movement, life safety and environmental challenges within the exterior and interior of your building. In addition, this course covers proper detailing of fire barriers to reduce an architect’s liability exposure.

Attendees will develop a solid foundation of expansion joints covering options in their preferred application. They will also have the skills to diagnose field problems and the ability to recognize the strongest life safety solutions available that could reduce an architect’s liability exposure.

Learning Objectives

In this webinar, you'll learn how to:

  • Acquire working knowledge of available architectural joint covers.
  • Develop a sound understanding of fire barrier systems and assess their applications.
  • Identify common field problems pertaining to joint detailing and installations in the field and their prevention.
  • Identify industry standards and liability reduction steps an architect can make.
