When designing and building a multifamily structure or other commercial project, outdoor railing is an important consideration. While railing’s key purpose is safety, you must also keep in mind other factors such as aesthetics, cost, and durability. The purpose of this course is to help you make the right choices for your railing project that will result in a long-lasting product that is safe, beautiful, and cost effective.
This course will discuss the overall advantages of choosing a custom-fabricated railing system built off-site compared to off-the-shelf products or locally fabricated railings. In addition to looking at the practical considerations of how different fabrication choices affect project time and budget, this course also identifies some ways to address health, safety, and building occupant welfare.
This course will introduce the learners to the performance capabilities and finish specifications used in architectural aluminum railing systems, including architectural design features available for aluminum railing fabrications, as well as introduction to specifications for punched and welded architectural aluminum railing systems. The course will also review common architectural aluminum railing system applications including balcony, roof railing, retaining walls, ramps and stairs.
This course will offer a basic understanding of the benefits of specifying cellular PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) railing systems, pergolas and gutters for residential construction projects. Railing systems in residential construction and remodeling have long been considered both decorative and functional however options have been historically limited to architects. Traditional railing materials like natural lumber, vinyl, and composite materials have been the standard choices available for years, but these materials pose several challenges in aesthetics, durability, affordability, and limited design options. Today railing systems can be created using cellular PVC which offers many advantages over traditional railing.

This course starts off with an overview of cable railing assemblies, and goes on to describe the different types available and the advantages. The course will also take a closer look at how the use of cable infill will affect the design of the railing frame while addressing the different end and corner post and frame design requirements. This course also looks at prefabricated cable assembly kits and all of the different components and installation ideas. Also, it takes a closer look at the idea of custom cable installations.
All of i-lighting's LED "Easy Plug" systems Each year in the United States, there are over 1 million accidents on stairs that result in injury. The stair light kits come complete with everything you need to complete the job including "Easy Plug" wiring, an LED fixture designed at a 22? angle to shine on the tread, color matched stainless steel screws and staples to neatly tie up wiring. i-lighting's stair lighting kits provide the solution to meeting code and providing a safe environment for friends and family.

This course introduces styles, characteristics, options, colors, and product features that are available with modular precast concrete (MPC) products. MPC requires no ongoing maintenance, can be constructed faster and costs less than masonry structures, and should be strongly considered for fence, sound wall, barrier projects and retaining solutions. Competitive advantages and differences between MPC and other systems, as well as technical aspects, code concerns and construction logistics will be discussed.
