Resisting Attack: Building Ballistic and Blast & Forced Entry Protection
Sponsored By Armortex
Presented By Rick Snelling
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

In this one-hour course, design professionals will learn about blast and ballistic resistant technology developed to provide comprehensive life, asset and building protection.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Evaluate the variety of innovative resistance technologies that are used to protect occupants and assets from threats including blast and ballistic assault
  2. Explore the standards organizations that create the criteria and testing for resistance technologies to determine the successfulness of these products protecting life and securing a building in the event of blast or ballistic attack
  3. Analyze panels, windows, doors & related physical security products engineered to provide durability and safety against threats to life, buildings and assets
  4. Apply knowledge of anti-ballistic technology through case studies that highlight products that protect and provide comprehensive security

Efficiency & Turndown: Hype Vs. Fact About Gas Fired Water Heaters & Boilers
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)
1 ASPE CE Hour
1 RCEP PDH(s) for Engineers

Turndown has been a hot topic for a while now, but it isn’t a magic solution. Join us in this one-hour course as we separate the hype from the facts about high turndown, looking at real-world applications. Participants will learn why its better to focus on combustion and thermal efficiency to achieve high efficiency.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Recognize the different definitions of turndown ratio and explain how turndown became a contentious topic in terms of efficiency and sizing
  2. Summarize system challenges to achieving very high turndown, focusing on short cycling and boiler efficiency
  3. Articulate the real-world advantages and disadvantages of a higher turndown boiler by reviewing a case study
  4. Contrast combustion efficiency and thermal efficiency and illustrate how the terms are connected and what factors impact them
  5. Develop new and existing designs that achieve high efficiency by utilizing cooler return water to maximize efficiency of a condensing heater

Kitchen Cabinets
Sponsored By Wolf Home Products
Presented By Jason Foura
1 AIA HSW/LU CE Hour(s)

A study of the US cabinet market and cabinet construction methods including substrates, composition, hardware, and finishes.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify and compare various substrates and composition of kitchen cabinets. How furniture board and MDF are made with binders and materials that can off gas
  2. Examine the features and benefits of various finish options for kitchen cabinets. How these finishes are applied regarding robotics for paint and stain booths as well as capturing and recycling fumes/off gas. Discussion on off gassing of compounds in Resins such as thermofoil and melamine cabinet finishes
  3. Define and compare framed and frameless cabinets, as well as factory built versus assembled cabinets. Theses differences play a significant roll in how they are installed as well as the sturdiness and safety of hanging heavier weights/cabinet materials
  4. Discuss available and new hardware options as well as best installation practices for safe and sturdy install
