Expansion Joint Fire Barriers:

Principles, Practices & Problems

presented by

Course Description
There is more to an expansion joint system than just the frame and covers.

This AIA CES program deals with the life safety specifics of fire barriers, industry standards and testing.  In addition, it covers installation concerns, proper detailing of fire barriers, and the current state of joint system verification.

The goal is to limit liability and make sure your building and its occupants are not vulnerable to the hazards of fire, smoke and heat transfer.

Learning Objectives
  • Master a basic understanding of fire barriers as related to expansion joint systems.
  • Define industry standard fire barrier types, ratings and testing protocols.
  • Identify proper barrier detailing of common building conditions.
  • Distinguish good barrier installations from those that increase vulnerabilities.
  • Examine system failure causes and their remedies.
