Designing with glass in hurricane zones has a special set of design considerations and product requirements.
Deerfield Beach, Fla. (PRWEB) August 4, 2010
Crawford Tracey Corporation (CTC), a leading Florida glazing contractor specializing in unitized and pre-glazed curtain wall, is pleased to announce that it has been approved as a AIA/CES Provider. The company’s first course, “Glazing Design for High Velocity Wind Zone Areas” is free to Florida architects by contacting the company and requesting a “Lunch & Learn” appointment.
The new course helps architects understand wind load and wind-borne debris requirements for glazing systems in high velocity hurricane zones. It also covers information about product approvals, specifications, performance features and design options for glazing systems in these areas. Architects who participate in the course will receive one hour of Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) AIA/CES credit.
“Designing with glass in hurricane zones has a special set of design considerations and product requirements,” says Ray Crawford, CEO of Crawford Tracey. “This course will help architects and specifiers understand what the requirements are and how they can use glass to meet and exceed codes and client expectations.”
CTC is uniquely positioned to present this course. The company was founded in 1956 and has been active in Southeastern US and Caribbean ever since. It pioneered the development of four-sided structurally glazed systems and unitized glazing systems, and it also developed, tested and installed the first large and small missile commercial impact products after Hurricane Andrew.
CTC’s new AIA course is available as a one-hour presentation. For additional information or to schedule a presentation, visit http://www.crawfordtracey.com, or call 954-698-6888.
