Understanding Wind Load Fundamentals

Understanding Wind Load Fundamentals

to take this course

There are many variables that need to be considered to specify the correct rolling door in a wind load application. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss wind load as it pertains to rolling doors and the safety of installers and occupants. Design professionals will learn the details required to specify the correct door for each application based on environment and regulations, as well as be able to calculate the required design pressure (±PSF).

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Define wind load and discuss wind load requirements that are used to safely install and operate rolling doors
  2. Identify environmental differences that affect wind load as it relates to rolling doors, as well as how building code and regulating bodies work to ensure building safety
  3. Develop appropriate specifications for rolling doors based on a project’s environment and wind load requirements to minimize safety risks to both installers and future occupants
  4. Calculate the correct design pressure (±psf) for various projects and building needs using a formula that incorporates IBC and ASCE-7 requirements
