  • Accessibility Codes for Window Hardware (1 LU/HSW)

“Accessibility and security are two key areas of concern for architects, owners and occupants. We want to help them understand the applicable codes and standards, testing and certification, performance requirements and specifications to make an informed decision about the best window system design criteria,” says Wausau’s government market manager, Tom Mifflin, LEED® Green Associate.

AIA-registered architects are required to complete 12 hours of Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) education as part of their total 18 Learning Units (18.0 LUs) in a calendar year. As a registered AIA/CES provider, Wausau offers a total of 11.0 possible LUs with the following courses:

“Packed with valuable, technical information on the building envelope, each course addresses fenestration in commercial and institutional building designs, such as government offices, health care facilities, schools and universities,” adds Mifflin.

Wausau’s long-standing commitment to architects, and to the whole building team, includes providing consultations, pre-bid design engineering assistance, and 24/7 access to product details, technical specifications and sustainable design information.
