UL 325 Demystifying a Common Denominator of our Industry

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 – 10-11:30 AM

Safety is key to the success of your company and our industry.  If it is not your top concern, it probably should be. UL 325 has been around since the 1970’s, and has played a big part in establishing safety requirements for automatic door operators, gate operators and related products. Many people simply look for a certification mark on a product and don’t go any further to understand what is behind that mark.  In this seminar, you will find out what UL 325 really is, how it is developed, and what manufacturers go through to achieve compliance with UL 325. It will also cover recent changes, and how UL 325 keeps current as product technology advances. Whether you are a dealer, distributor, installer, service person, sales person, or manufacturer - you will no longer just “take for granted” that a product has a certification mark.  It will leave you more informed, better able to serve your customers, and perhaps even connected to influencing the future of safety for this industry.

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 – 1:00-2:00 PM

UL 325 has an impact on every door dealer, and this is your opportunity to visit with one of UL’s experts regarding this voluntary standard. Joining him will be manufacturer representatives who deal with UL in the testing and approval process, who can answer questions about how manufacturers handle these procedures. Come planning to get your questions answered.

Fenestration – More than the Definition Conveys 

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 – 4:30-5:30 PM

Fenestration is defined by Webster as “the arrangement, proportioning, and design of windows and doors in a building,” but we all know it is much more involved than this definition describes.  Factors such as product design, types of products for the application, ensuring proper performance, integration of the fenestration product within the wall system, and so much more plays a part in what manufacturers build, and more importantly, what to ask and look for when purchasing and installing these products.  In this seminar, you will be exposed to all of these topics and more.  You will leave better informed about the Fenestration market, and performance of these products relative to Building Codes and State specific requirements.  You will also gain greater insight into the testing and regulatory side of the Fenestration Industry allowing you to provide further knowledge to the customers and industry you serve.
