Join METALCON and Steve Gaynor of RAiNA on Wednesday, June 7th as he shares information about the exterior wall assembly fire performance code. The code requirements for fire performance of the exterior wall assembly are vast and nuanced. Understanding how to read the code language is more important than memorizing what it says. This course will discuss a variety of fire related topics as it pertains to facades, Combustibility testing, classification, resistance ratings, and fire propagation testing. The review of code language is intended to help participants become familiar with the way the code is written and the logic, therein. Concluding with a discussion of competing performance priorities, and a discussion on how to manage them.
