Course Description: AEC Daily: High-Speed High-Cycle Doors: An Introduction to High-Performance Doors for Commercial Buildings and Parking Facilities
In commercial, industrial, and parking structures, it is important to use doors that can provide speed, safety, separation, and security. High-performance roll-up doors provide all these elements better than conventional doors. This course provides an in-depth discussion of the different types of high-performance doors—fabric, rigid, and rubber—along with their benefits and functions in different applications. The design and installation considerations for using these doors are also discussed.
Define high-performance doors versus conventional doors.
Recall the performance benefits and safety features of high-performance doors for commercial, industrial, and parking facilities including energy savings, reduction of first-responder response times, and intruder prevention.
List typical applications for high-performance doors and select the most appropriate high-performance door for each application and its required level of security and impact resistance.
Identify factors that influence the specification, detailing, installation, and safe operation of high-performance doors.
Describe the various types, materials, and technologies available in high-performance doors and their security, safety, and energy-efficiency benefits.
