Course Title: The Power of a Great Railing System: Stock Components for Architectural Metal Work 

Course Description: 

For over a century, pre-engineered components have simplified the fabrication of handrails and other decorative elements. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss key considerations when specifying stock components for architectural metal work. Participants will not only be able to articulate the benefits of utilizing stock components but also how to evaluate different types of metal alloys and finishes in order to specify and install the best profiles in a variety of applications.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Discuss the benefits of utilizing stock components for architectural metal work, such as sustainability and durability, as well as compare metal alloys and finishes
  2. List the five major engineering considerations for component systems to ensure products are specified and installed correctly for safe use
  3. Evaluate different profiles of stock components in order to select the best component for each project’s needs based on design and durability
  4. Illustrate the different ways architectural metal work can be utilized in a wide variety of applications by analyzing case studies
