Fire-rated Expansion Joints

August 22 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

The breakthrough family of single-install, multi-function, fire-rated, waterproof, sound proof, hurricane-resistant, high movement expansion joint sealant technology will be discussed and contrasted with existing technologies and principles of the industry.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Analyze how watertight, energy efficient, fire-rated expansion joints are the consequence of a process in which we: Design, Detail, Specify, Bid Erect, Manufacture, and Install in 3D
  2. Learn why it is critical to require certified performance and test reports from national laboratories in specifications.
  3. Investigate how fire-rated expansion joints can contribute to sound attenuation, reduce energy loads for heating and cooling, eliminate high-emitting VOC’s, and save in materials and resources through long life-cycle material choices.
  4. How to meet Life Safety obligations while practicing good building science.
