Perimeter Fire Barrier Systems for Today’s Hybrid Window Wall Designs
Today’s high-performance building enclosures demand high performance fire protection and the development of newer “Hybrid Window Wall designs” has created issues on projects throughout North America. Curtain wall consultants and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ’s) are requiring tested firestop solutions for this growing wall type. Fully understanding the role and value of perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever changing and complex designs cannot be overstated. As the industry changes almost on a monthly basis, understanding how to maintain the integrity of a non-rated hybrid window wall system for up to 2 hours is critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements during construction. Key topics are outlined below and will be discussed in detail incorporating PowerPoint & video.

Learning Objectives:
-Define the role and value of perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever-changing and complex designs.
-Identify code officials and consultants' concerns and code requirements for perimeter fire protection.
-Describe how hybrid window walls are tested per ASTM E 2307 and the importance of independent third-party testing for perimeter fire barrier systems.
-Recognize the complexity of hybrid window wall designs.
