Building Code Compliant Photoluminescent Egress Path Markings


Recognizing the need for egress path markings that are visible even in emergency and backup power failures, the 2009 edition of the International Building Code was the first to mandate photoluminescent products for exit enclosures, and the requirement has been repeated in the 2012, 2015 and 2018 editions. This course presents the requirements for compliant use and placement along egress paths and explains the benefits of non-electrical, non-radioactive photoluminescent markings that are long-lasting, easy to understand and highly visible to help occupants exit high-rise buildings effectively and efficiently.

What's In A Wall? Components in a Cavity Wall


There are several key elements that must be considered with a cavity wall system. Heat, air, and moisture — both vapor and liquid — have a definite impact on how a cavity wall system should be designed and constructed. Once these elements have been addressed, a cavity wall system will increase energy efficiency, meet the required energy and fire code standards, and will provide cost-savings over the life of the building.
