Considerations and Applications of WoodCeilings
|Offered by||McGraw-Hill Construction|
Engineered products for building interiors have evolved rapidly over recent decades, with notable advances in materials and performance in only the last few years. These changes have helped architects improve the performance of interior spaces overall and the spaces# contributions to sustainability, resiliency and productivity # the ultimate design goals.
1. Describe applications of simulated wood products for interiors and ceilings, including engineered wood and metal substrates, andtheir benefits to sustainable design.
2. Compare the environmental and health impacts of traditional and engineered wood solutions to composite wood-look materials including films, profile wrapped veneers, and powder coating on metal, wood and plastic substrates.
3. List key criteria for ceiling material selection, including fire safety and fire ratings as well as such IEQ factors as acoustics, light reflectance, toxicity and durability/performance.
4. Evaluate wood-look and other ceiling systems in terms of theirgreen-building benefits, such as recycled materials, light weight, acoustics and VOCs.
