Join SMCO Tuesday, April 10, 2018 for a much need training on the topic of firestopping.  Most buildings built by current codes require some type of protection.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This training is designed for Plans Examiners, Fire and Building Inspectors, Contractors, Architects and Engineers. Throughout the training, we will review the firestopping requirements of the International Building code, as well as hold a general discussion as to why firestop inspections have proven to be one of the most difficult challenges for code officials. Methods to achieve code-compliant firestop systems for joints, perimeter containment, through and membrane-penetrations will be provided, and we will discuss the new ASTM firestop inspection standards.  This training will also provide an overview of draftstopping and fireblocking.  Overall, attendees will leave this program encouraged, informed and with helpful hints and techniques pertaining to their field of work.
