Certain types of buildings are targets for forced-entry, active-shooter events, and terrorist attacks, while others are at risk for opportunistic threats. Architects should consider specifying security glazing and framing on projects ranging from schools and healthcare facilities to retail stores, stadiums, and religious buildings. This course will examine security threats and how they impact people and property, explore different types of security glazing, industry-recognized testing standards, and design considerations for specifying glazing in various applications.
