  • New Technologies in Clean Agents

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/16/2013

    One of the challenges in fire protection is providing proper suppression systems in sensitive areas with high dollar equipment or irreplaceable artifacts. For years clean agent systems and early detection has been a large part of this solution. However, as the areas we are protecting become more challenging due to unique designs we need to turn to new technologies that outperform the current mindset.

  • PEX in Commercial Piping Applications

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 12/08/2013

    PEX in Commercial Piping Applications

    While the use of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) piping has been widespread in residential applications for some time, building owners, contractors and engineers are moving towards it as a cost-effective and flexible alternative to copper for plumbing and hydronic distribution on large-scale commercial projects. PEX has become a proven system solution that reduces both material and labor costs while providing the reli­ability and peace of mind that building owners demand. When considering PEX, however, it is important that contractors and engineers understand not only the benefits but the challenges and potential pitfalls.

    This one-hour sponsored webinar examines the following:

    What is crosslinked polyethylene (PEX)?
    What are the different types of PEX and fitting systems available in the commercial marketplace?  
    What are the advantages of PEX compared to copper or CPVC?  
    How does a PEX design differ from a copper design? What design considerations need to be taken into account?
    Is PEX plenum-rated?  
    How do recent code changes/approval affect the use of PEX in commercial projects?  
    What are common design and installation best practices?  
    What about the health and safety concerns surrounding PEX?
