Loss Mitigation through Building Design

The rise in natural disaster events has led to insurance claims in the billions of dollars, and most importantly, loss of life. This trend has prompted standards such as ES1 and GT-1 to be added to international building code, but what else can be done to mitigate risk? Through this course, learn about how specifying the roof edge is the single most cost-effective enhancement for wind uplift on a commercial roof and how you can help mitigate risk and protect lives through design.

Cutting-Edge Code Compliance

This one-hour course examines the importance of specifying the proper edge solution for commercial roofing systems that complies with the most recent code changes with products that have been tested for the appropriate type of project. The correct edge system will not only be functional and have an aesthetic style that suits design professionals, but it will also serve as the roof’s first line of defense against wind damage and water infiltration. To reduce liability associated with substantial roof damage and loss from a storm, it is important for design professionals to fully understand changes in the building code and testing methods required for each project. The goal is to equip designers and specifiers with cutting edge information to make critical decisions that will ensure the building envelope is securely protected with edge systems that meet or exceed expectations as well as better protect building occupants.

Gutters & ANSI/SPRI GT-1

ANSI/SPRI GT-1 was added into the 2021 International Building Code, offering a holistic approach to design and testing standards for gutter systems. As gutters are an integral part of the roof edge system, ANSI/SPRI GT-1 provides a consensus for an acceptable level of performance with real world practicality. This course will review the standard and test methods for gutter systems that secure membrane on commercial low slope roof systems for load resistance and why that is important for specifiers.

Factory Tour: Journey to the Edge of the Roof

Design professionals will have the opportunity to participate in a factory tour where they will be able to dive more deeply into the topic of using pre-engineered edge systems to provide greater protection to the roof of a building as well as to its inhabitants. First, an overview will be given to present industry findings to emphasize the significance of specifying a technical solution that maintains the integrity of the roof during various forces of nature. Second, we will demonstrate the edge system manufacturing process and discuss design parameters to participants. During the plant tour, participants will also be exposed to cellular manufacturing as a means to drive continuous improvement in quality and delivery as well as an installation demonstration to highlight the differences between the systems. Third, we will demonstrate testing methods that apply to roof edge systems so that participants have a greater understanding of the importance of specifying products that perform under pressure and defend the building envelope.
