Learning Objective

This course will educate participants on the energy code and wind load requirements for coiling doors to enable the selection of code compliant products. Attendees will learn key aspects that affect the energy performance of coiling doors, the various rating methods that manufacturers use to report insulated door performance and why maintaining secured commercial door openings during extreme weather conditions is critical to the overall structural integrity of buildings.

  • Understanding R-value, U-value, U-factor and air leakage for rolling doors. Understand the difference between test and design wind load.
  • Understand the variables that effect design wind load and how wind load forces are transferred from the door to the building structure.
  • Key aspects of energy codes that pertain to rolling doors
  • How varying door parameters impact energy performance.
