Course description

As energy codes become more stringent, the demand for higher performance windows has escalated. Many contractors assume the only way to achieve the required results is to use triple glazing in windows, this is not the case. Window technology has changed considerably over the last decade, and a window is no longer just a frame with glass. LoE coatings in combination with good frame design can achieve triple-glazed-like performance in a double-glazed window. This is done by applying the right LoE coating to the right surface and utilizing efficient and smart frame design.

In this seminar you will learn how to optimize glass design and how the right frame selection will result in thermal U-values needed to achieve advancing code requirements, without the need to have to pay more for triple glazing and find people willing to install heavy triple-glazed windows.
