December 09, 2020

This course was designed to eliminate the confusion associated with the different aspects of perimeter fire barrier systems. Fully understanding the role and value of tested systems in today’s complex curtain wall configurations cannot be overstated and understanding their unique challenges are critical in the design phase. As the industry changes on a almost daily basis, understanding how to meet the ASTM E2307 requirements for up to 4 hours is essential in the design phase in order to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements during construction.

The Basics of Perimeter Fire Containment (BPFC) has been approved by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for 1 LU/HSW and upon completion, attendees of this training will be able to:
  • Understand the basics of curtain walls and how they perform in a fire
  • Understand the development of the IBC and State building codes in North America regarding the requirements for perimeter fire barrier systems
  • Understand the impact of the ASTM E 2307 test standard on actual test that have been run. This easily documents the impact and severity of the new code requirement.
  • Design for success through an understanding the basics of all non-backpan perimeter fire containment tested system
