Frameless Glass Railing: Designing Stunning, Code-Compliant Systems

Glass railings can be a beautiful addition to your residential and commercial projects, adding value to your portfolio and raising your profits; however, specification questions, code changes and misinterpretations can stand in the way of a successful glass railing project. In this session, attendees will learn about design considerations, code requirements, installation methods, testing standards, cap rail requirements, and laminated glass guardrail requirements. They will also walk away with a sound understanding of 2015 IBC updates—along with their impact— and the important role of the International Code Council (ICC).

Early bird registration now open for 2018 AAMA Annual Conference in Orlando

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel

Schaumburg, Illinois -- The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has opened registration for the AAMA 81st Annual Conference, to be held Feb. 19-22, 2018 in Orlando at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. This is the first-ever conference AAMA is hosting with the association's new Monday through Thursday schedule. A special rate is guaranteed through Jan. 26, and attendees are encouraged to book before this date. The AAMA Southeast Region 2018 Winter Meeting immediately will follow the conference in the same location, and separate registration is required.

The keynote speakers for the event will be two representatives of The Afterburners, giving a presentation called, "Plan, Brief, Execute, Debrief = Win." Afterburner, Inc.'s founder Jim "Murph" Murphy, started the company, which helps organizations "effectively leverage team experience, lessons learned and structure planning processes to achieve new levels of success." The company does this with the help of the Flawless Education® Cycle, a tool Murphy created after being inspired by his work as an F-15 fighter jet pilot. Two speakers closely familiar with Murphy's philosophies will speak at the conference about them and how they can be applied to businesses.

Other speakers will cover a range of industry-specific and professional growth topics:
* Joe Hetzel from the Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA) will present, "Pedestrian Doors & Vehicular Access Doors: Similarities & Differences."
* Dr. Fiona Solomon from the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative (ASI) will give an address called, "Sustainability Standards & Certification in Raw Materials Supply Chains."
* Cristian Barcan from the Vinyl Institute (VI) will give an update on the vinyl industry.
* AAMA Communications Coordinator Meryl Williams will host a workshop entitlted, "The Who, What and Why of Twitter: Better Engage Existing and Potential Customers."

Conference registrants can look forward to the annual awards banquet the night of Feb. 20, which has the theme "Italiana." The dress code is business attire, and a jacket is recommended for photos. Additionally, an optional golf scramble will be held on Monday at Grand Cypress Golf Club, on a new course.

OCTOBER 2017

CFSEI TO HOST WEBINAR ON THE STRUCTURAL ASPECT OF INTERIOR NONSTRUCTURAL COLD-FORMED STEEL FRAMING ON OCTOBER 26, 2017

 

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 3, 2017—The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on “The Structural Aspect of Interior Nonstructural Cold-Formed Steel Framing” on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The webinar is designed for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors. Participants are eligible for 1.5 PDHs. 

 The webinar will review various interior nonstructural cold-formed steel framing for code-specified and engineered applications. Often, interior applications beyond ASTM installation standards are not thoroughly addressed in project contract documents. This webinar will assist building design professionals by highlighting code and industry standard limitations and illustrating which ones do not require analysis and which ones require additional engineering to determine proper member sizes and installation. The webinar will cover several topics, including:

 Industry technology,

· Wall and ceiling members: tables, bridging and limitations,

· Chase wall framing,

· Partial height partition support systems,

· Structure deflection accommodations, and

· Suspended ceiling systems. 

 The webinar will be conducted by Randy Kuss, Project Manager at ClarkDietrich Engineering Services, LLC. Randy has more than 25 years of experience in both structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing, ranging from basic interior partition installation requirements to complex architectural feature framing. His current responsibilities include engineering pricing, sales, design management, engineering design, detailing and field installation technical services for all aspects of structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing.  

 More information on the webinar and registration details are available at http://www.cfsei.org/.

The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers and other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel. CFSEI members work together to develop and evolve industry standards and design methods, produce and issue technical bulletins, and provide seminars and online training to improve the knowledge and skills base of engineers and design professionals.
