This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. This course will introduce aluminum as an efficient, sustainable alternative to other types of balconies and awnings. Aluminum’s sustainability properties will be examined in addition to its strength and performance characteristics. Bolt-on balconies, also called self-supporting balconies, will also be explored in the context of prefabricated systems. These systems offer practical benefits like ease of installation and added safety. Finally, the course will address key design and installation considerations of these systems as well as building code requirements.
