In these circumstances, translucent daylighting systems can help provide athletes with plenty of natural light during their indoor workouts in a way that is both practical and visually pleasing. Here are five reasons to incorporate translucent daylighting into your athletic facility design:

Detectable warning plates are a type of tactile paving, designed to be “read” by those using a cane for guidance. They are a form of universal design, for their contrasting color and textures act as communication for all users of a space. Tiles with truncated domes were invented in Japan in the late sixties by Seiichi Miyake, and installed for the first time in 1967, outside a school for the blind. They have since been adopted worldwide, with basic installation standards to ensure that they communicate the same message to users the world over.

It can be a challenge trying to figure out what codes and standards to follow, as there are codes that address fire and electrical hazards (NFPA), codes that relate to work environments (OSHA), and codes that address accessibility for persons with disabilities (ADA), as well as model building codes (IRC and IBC) and local building codes.

No ballistic barrier is complete without ballistic panels (often referred to casually as “bulletproof drywall”). That’s because, although cinder block and brick will stop most common bullet calibers, standard construction drywall will not. In fact, a 9mm bullet will penetrate more than two dozen sheets of half-inch drywall and still be able to do harm. That bullet will likewise pop through several layers of plywood—and even through stacks of two-by-fours.
