  • Aluminum Full View (AFV) doors are a fast growing segment within the building product industry. They have a wide range of applications in a variety of building types. This course will look at potential applications and building types, options for installation, and custom options in design when specifying AFV doors.

  • Commercial fenestration products including sectional doors, rolling sheet doors, and rolling steel doors can improve building performance and provide essential building/opening protection. This course discusses common door features, hardware, insulation, installation, and optional types of electric operators, and evaluates the performance criteria required for a specific dock or drive through opening.

  • Can commercial overhead doors contribute to the sustainability goals of buildings requiring garage, drive-through, fire, dock, and service products? To meet these goals, commercial sectional and rolling doors should be engineered to provide energy efficiency and personnel protection, and to mitigate fire and wind damage. This course examines the sustainable attributes of commercial overhead doors and explores their design potential in LEED® compliant projects.

  • Sectional overhead doors are not just for main floor vehicle entry and egress, they are available for multiple applications in second stories, office buildings, and interior spaces. Today’s doors offer high strength and insulated glazing options for increased energy efficiency, durability, and security. Multiview panels offer increased daylight and views for occupants. This course reviews important points to consider when specifying an overhead door such as overall safety and security, insulation and wind–load requirements, and glazing options. Various case studies are also examined.
