      Lightweight & Fire-Resistance-Rated Construction Seminar: MABOI

      Sep
      12
      Sep 12 at 8:00 am to Sep 12 at 5:00 pm

      Please Join us for an Education Seminar Hosted by MABOI, Sponsored by Tech Electronics, and Presented by Underwriters Laboratories.

      Tech Electronics has partnered with MABOI to offer a free seminar where Rich Walke of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) will review the following topics:

      Fire Performance of Lightweight Engineered Construction:
      This presentation provides a detailed look at the results of a research investigation UL conducted for the Department of Homeland Security on the fire performance of lightweight engineered lumber construction.  The research provides back to back comparisons of the performance of legacy construction using dimensional lumber versus modern construction using engineered structural elements.  The program covers how the fire risk in residential construction has changed over the recent decades, the methodology used in the research, the results of the research and how the research provided the basis for changes in the 2012 International Residential Code.

      Fire-Resistance-Rated Construction:
      This program provides an in-depth look at the requirements of the International Building Code for fire-resistive construction.  It will start with a detailed look at what is fire-resistance-rated construction, where it is required and what is the required rating.  From there, it will cover the practical aspects as detailed in Chapter 7, including the unique requirements for structural elements, walls and horizontal assemblies, the referenced standards, the testing process described in the referenced standards, and the available methods of demonstrating code compliance, including the use of the UL Fire Resistance Directory, Volume 1, the UL Online Certifications Directory and UL Product Spec.

      Date & Time:
      September 12, 2017 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
      Registration Open @ 8:00 am
      Seminar Begins @ 8:30 am
