Presentation Topic: Combustible Windows & Façade Components in Non-Combustible Construction – Testing, Research, and Expanding Methods
Dates: October 12, November 16
Time: varies by date
Registration Fee: No Charge
CPD Eligibility: 1 point – Category A4
We desperately need better energy efficiency from building enclosures, from both windows and insulated wall assemblies. Today, the best products and components to enable this are generally made from low conductivity materials. Most of these materials also happen to be combustible—at least, to some extent. Even so, combustible components such as cladding supports and window frames can be safely used in non-combustible construction. For new products that lead the industry for enabling better energy efficiency, a creative and careful approach is required for demonstrate safe use and code compliance. There is rarely a defined path to code compliance. Testing, engineering, and often fire code consulting is required by manufacturers or project teams.
