WDMA Offers Webinars on Updated Architectural Door StandardsFebruary 3rd, 2012 by DWM Magazine
The Window and Door Manufacturers Association’s (WDMA) recently released webinars for architectural wood flush doors and wood stile and rail doors that are now accredited by both the Door and Hardware Institute (DHI) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for continuing education point credit. The on-demand webinars, developed by WDMA’s National Architectural Door Council, are free to the public and include a complimentary digital copy of each standard for those who successfully complete the webinar and the online quiz at the end. Total estimated time for each webinar is 20 minutes.
According to an association announcement, the webinar series is the first step in educating the architect and specifier community about the updated WDMA I.S. 1A-11, Industry Standard for Architectural Wood Flush Doors, and WDMA I.S. 6A-11, Industry Standard for Architectural Stile and Rail Doors.
After completing these courses, users will be able to: describe the difference between the various standards in the marketplace, and why architects should use the newest performance based design standards; identify interior architectural wood door performance levels, based on where they are to perform within the facility; and define the distinct performance levels or grades for these doors that are crucial in overall specification.
Additional information is available through the WDMA’s website.
