SAFTI FIRST, leading USA-manufacturer of advanced fire rated glass and framing systems, is pleased to announce the launch of the first and only fire rated glazing educational program registered with the International Code Council (ICC).  Building code officials, fire marshals and other participants of “Designing with Fire Rated Glass” may receive 0.10 ICC CEU upon successful completion.  It is available in two convenient formats – online and on-demand through www.safti.com/webinars or a scheduled in-person presentation by one of SAFTI FIRST’s technical experts upon request.

This program is designed to empower building code officials and fire marshals to accurately review whether or not the correct and code-approved fire rated glass and framing products are specified in the project or installed in the field based on current IBC code requirements and test standards.  It will also present the latest information on various listed and labeled fire rated glass and framing systems available in the market today. 

“Alongside architects who design buildings, code officials and fire marshals play a large role in the planning, approval and enforcement of critical life-safety products like fire rated glass and framing,” says William O’Keeffe, President and CEO at SAFTI FIRST.  “Our program aims to make it easier for them to review and identify fire rated glass and framing products during plan review and installation to ensure the safety of building occupants.  It also demonstrates how safety and design can indeed go hand-in-hand.”

This educational program includes various safety and fire testing videos, animated charts and other high-impact visuals designed to sustain the viewer’s interest and help retain valuable information. To receive ICC credit for the online, on-demand version, participants must complete and pass the required quiz after taking the program.
