The newly renamed Architectural Services division at LaForce now offers the following class: AIA-CES-4015, “Understanding the Requirements of Fire Rated Door Openings.”A LaForce Architectural Services Consultant leads this 1 HSW credit class for architects, typically in a 1-hour lunch setting.
Consultant Shawn Boerst said that this topic is especially useful for those who work in commercial architecture, since there is a lot of confusion over what makes an opening fire code compliant or non-compliant. The course walks through various NFPA codes and gives examples of each, since many nuances exist.
Shawn added that during a LaForce-lead AIA class, consultants will take the time to answer questions and will also stay after the class to address concerns related to the course topic and doors/frames/hardware in general. While the primary purpose of the AIA course is education, consultants can also answer questions related to LaForce’s services and products – in particular, our architectural consulting services. As a distributor, LaForce offers many products and brands, so we can help customers find the best fit for their respective projects.
