The Benefits of Specifying Low-E Coatings

The Benefits of Specifying Low-E Coatings discusses the benefits of specifying high performance architectural glass to improve the energy efficiency of buildings while reducing their operating costs and carbon emissions. The course will help learners differentiate between passive and solar control low-e coatings and different glass performance measure. Finally, the course will analyze how low-e coatings can improve energy efficiency and help the project earn LEED® credit contributions.

Glass Production, Processing and Performance

Glass Production, Processing and Performance provides an introduction to the different types of glasses that are available, such as clear, tinted and low-iron. Significant emphasis is placed on coated glasses, including the common types of low-e application processes and the consequent impact on energy and environmental performance. The different types of flat glass processing and fabrication methods, as well as thermal breakage, wind load, sound attenuation and size limitations as they relate to specifying glass, are also covered.

Understanding Low-E Coatings

Understanding Low-E Coatings provides an introduction to how high-performance architectural glass can significantly improve the energy efficiency of buildings while reducing their operating costs and carbon emissions. This course provides in-depth information about the solar energy spectrum and common glass performance measures, including the manufacturing processes for passive and solar control low-e coatings and how the energy, environmental, and economic benefits of low-e glass are quantified.
