Firestop is widely recognized as a problematic issue for owners, specifiers and contractors alike. It is perhaps the most misapplied and misunderstood segment in Life-Safety in modern construction, especially with the constant changes in code. Please join the New Jersey Subcontractors Association and Specified Technologies, Inc. – STI Firestop‘s John Zalepka for our next breakfast networking meeting on December 1st from 8:30-10:30, where we will have a presentation on the Key Points in Firestopping.
In this one-hour CEU / AIA-accredited course (FS070), we will cover the basics of life safety and how to properly design code compliant firestopping systems. Additionally, this course covers major issues in design such as coordination of the subcontractor trades, data cabling, through penetrations including plastic pipes, typical construction joints and curtainwall. Finally, we will discuss how to take a UL System approach for managing the entire firestop process on your next project.
So… get your CEU’s or contractor certification cards before the end of the year… network with other industry professionals… and get a glimpse inside STI’s Global Corporate Headquarters.
