Lunchtime Learning: Innovation and Customization in Overhead Doors


Traditional overhead doors are limited in application. With outside-the-box technology, the door becomes a complement to architectural design vs. a conflict. The door becomes more than just a door.

Join AIA|DC and Modern Door to gain insight into various types and applications of customizable overhead doors. Participants will discuss important safety features and standards and how these doors can contribute to a sustainable project, including LEED certification.

Sponsored by: Modern Door

After attending this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the components and explain the operation of the various types of overhead doors;
2. Evaluate how counterweight balanced doors can be used to add value to the design of an existing building, renovation and new construction;
3. Discuss safety standards for overhead doors; and
4. Describe how overhead doors contribute to a sustainable design and LEED certification;
