In this one-hour course, we’ll discuss flexible spaces and the different types of vertical openings available. We’ll discuss how they’re built, differences in operation, customizations and design constraints that can have an impact on the health, safety and welfare of building occupants. We will also talk about environmental impacts of your opening’s design and how that can affect your choice in door type and final design.
