Webinar for metal building systems protection

The Metal Building Manufacturers Assn. (MBMA) has developed a webinar on protecting metal building systems from fire. The first webinar is March 27.

02/28/2012


Metal Building Manufacturers Assn.'s (MBMA) has developed a Fire Protecting Metal Building Systems webinar that will give metal building specifiers, contractors, and builders knowledge of building code requirements for protecting metal building systems from fire and offer an advanced understanding of how to do so. The presentation will cover the IBC requirements for fire-rated construction and occupancies, focusing on specific examples for metal building systems. MBMA's UL rated assemblies will be reviewed in detail, in addition to incorporating portions of the MBMA Fire Resistance Design Guide for Metal Building Systems.

Webinar dates for 2012 are:

  • March 27
  • April 24
  • May 30
  • June 17

"Fire resistance requirements for building construction continue to become more complicated with each new edition of the codes," says Charles Praeger, MBMA's assistant general manager. "New materials such as foam plastics and higher levels of insulation will change the way buildings are designed and change the requirements to meet the fire resistance requirements elsewhere in the codes."

Instructors include Dr. Nestor Iwankiw, Ph.D., senior engineer at Hughes Associates Inc., and Dan Walker, PE, senior staff engineer with the Metal Building Manufacturers Assn.
