The EPIC Metals Course covers the use of Architecturally aesthetic design solutions for open structure projects ranging from simple canopies to huge airport concourses. EPIC can provide over 70 different profiles of Acoustic and Non-Acoustic Roof and Floor deck, all intended to provide a finished Architectural ceiling while functioning as a major Structural component of the project. Many types of projects—schools, gymnasiums, Natatoriums, canopies, transportation facilities, conference centers, wellness facilities, multi-tenant buildings, perforated architectural screening, and more are addressed.
In addition the course typically describes how EPIC Metals Architectural Roof and Floor Deck Ceiling Systems have been engineered to achieve practical design features that contribute to USGBC LEED certification. These features include:
• Building Product Disclosure and Optimization
• Environmental Product Declarations
• Sourcing of Raw Materials
• Material Ingredients
• Construction and Demolition Waste Management
• Acoustic Performance
The course will also focus on multiple unique shapes and features of deck profiles, span and structural performance, basic acoustic theory and performance( NRC Value, STC Value, ICC Value), access/utility concealment options, NFPA approved hanging devices, Building Code Requirements ( U.L. Rating, FM Rating, ICC Rating), paint finishes, indoor/outdoor air control, curved/arched structural systems, factory integration of daylighting solutions, and numerous visual representations of existing projects.
