In addition, this webinar will explore how specifying multi-slide operable doors railing systems can reduce water intrusion and the ROI for specifying and using them.
- List the general principles of designing with multi-slide and bi-fold types of operable glass wall systems.
- Explain how multi-slide door systems can contribute to a water-resistant system for the building envelope when used with a zero-type track.
- Discuss the basic technical issues as well as ratings and applicable codes that govern the use of multi-slide/fold fenestration systems.
- Describe the benefits of reducing water intrusion and increasing aesthetic appeal by specifying tracks buried in the floor for large operable glass doors.
- List certain features and options in these fenestration systems, such as hardware and glass type, that help address facility life-cycle and maintenance concerns.
