Event Description

This one-hour course discusses vertical opening systems, how they’re built, differences in operation, and typical uses for interior and exterior applications. We will also consider features that influence the end user’s experience, including structural and electrical needs that can affect your flexible space’s final design.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify the different types of vertical openings and determine which is the most durable and safe for building occupants
  2. Explain benefits, drawbacks, and features to provide comfortable, usable, and durable flexible spaces for end users
  3. Describe and plan for structural and electrical requirements for each type of opening, and understand how that affects the design of the opening/building and how it impacts the safety of the building occupants
  4. Accurately and confidently specify the opening system that best aligns with the project’s design objectives while accounting for project limitations as well as occupant comfort
