1:00pm – 2:00pm Large Doors: How to Select the Right Door
Presented by William Trillich, Andersen Windows & Doors/ Weiland Doors
Qualifies for: 1 AIA/CEU LU/HSW
Modern design trends are favoring larger openings, and while this blank canvas offers the architect a wide-range of options, it can also pose a challenge. Because of the almost unlimited variations of different types, styles, and available options for large doors, it is often more important that the architect understands how to make the selection process, rather than which specific door to choose. The process for specifying should include client aesthetic expectations, environmental conditions, building performance, and durability concerns. When you complete this course you will know more about:
- Understand the unique design elements of an indoor/outdoor living space and modern trends in large doors.
- Describe what to consider when balancing the client needs with environmental conditions, building performance, and durability concerns.
- List the different door types and styles available for transition points between indoor and outdoor areas.
- Discuss the best process for specifying large doors in commercial and residential projects.
