BUILDING & OCCUPANT USE TRENDS POWERED BY ARCHITECTURAL DIRECT DRIVE DOOR SYSTEMS VS TRADITIONAL COMMODITY DOORS   Traditional production doors are very limited in applications where architectural design integration is a priority. The course provides insight into emerging building construction and occupant use trends in various types and applications of customizable architectural openings. New life safety features and standards are introduced as well as how doors can contribute to a sustainable design with energy efficient, high performance components that require, less valuable building real estate.

UNDERFLOOR SERVICE DISTRIBUTION - A KEY STRATEGY FOR GREEN BUILDINGS:   Demonstrates the uses of underfloor service distribution (UFSD) as a "Key Green Strategy" by exploring the benefits of the system. This includes improved IAQ, energy efficiency, personal comfort control, daylighting and flexibility. The benefits of UFSD will be compared to other common green building strategies by examining how they align with the high performance and sustainable attributes of a green building.

INTEGRATED DOORS IN HEALTHCARE OPENINGS   Healthcare facilities create unique design challenges. Along with aesthetic considerations there is also the need for long term code compliance and long term maintenance considerations for the facility to prevent down-time and inspection failure. In this presentation you will learn how integrated door assemblies can be used to solve these issues.  HSW CREDIT   Sponsored by Syntégra
