Fire-Rated Systems in Wood Construction

While no building is truly fireproof, construction materials and systems can make a building fire safe. This session provides an introduction to fire-rated systems in wood-frame construction. Along with APA's Fire-Rated Systems design and construction guide, this webinar offers guidance on designing and constructing some of the most cost-effective, code-compliant fire-rated construction systems. Participants will learn what's available, what's acceptable and what's best practice. Note: AIA (1 HSW/LU) and ICC (0.10 CEU) approve this course. A downloadable certificate of completion is available after completing a brief quiz and questionnaire.
