UL's Northbrook headquarters features their largest facility for fire protection-related evaluation of exterior and interior materials and products. The new building envelope lab provides performance testing to determine the rate of air infiltration, water penetration, structural, impact and cyclical performance for windows, doors and curtain walls.  

This tour includes both labs. Experience first-hand how building materials are tested for fire detection plus the thermal, weather and air barriers separating the building interiors from the outdoor environment. 

"These new testing capabilities not only help validate the design and material selection of the building envelope, but also help deliver assurance that windows, curtain walls and storefronts are compliant with industry standards and requirements," said Wayne Breighner, engineering manager of UL Fenestration Services.

Cost: $45 Members / $55 Non-Members 
Approved by ALA and AIA for 3.0 LU/HSW
