Architects and Passive Fire Resistance for Buildings

Choosing the right fire-rated design for a building's walls, beams, columns, floors or roof is a complex task for architects. Passive systems might not always fit design requirements but they must be in accordance with test procedures from the American Society for Testing Materials or from Underwriters Laboratories. 

A continuing education article from the Fall 2017 issue of Licensed Architect, written by Mike Hannan, UL LLC, examines building codes and passive fire resistance, historical application and modern designs. It suggests approaches to the process of selecting fire-resistant materials for passive building elements, ways to search for fire resistance of specific materials, how to research materials used in existing and historic buildings and how to document the findings. The article also provides research resources and references.

To qualify for 1.0 LU/HSW, answer the test questions from the Fall 2017 article and submit them with the included form by Sept. 19, 2019.

I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
