Vacuum Insulating Glazing (VIG) Benefits and Advantages in a Sustainable World 

Learn how vacuum insulating class (VIG) units are different from typical architectural insulating glass units (IGUs) and how VIG technologies can meet a vast range of needs, ranging from energy savings and occupant comfort to acoustic improvement. This course also examines the energy performance of VIG units compared to traditional product options and reviews specific code requirements that VIG products can meet and exceed.

The Benefits of Specifying Low-e CoatingsBack to Top

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.
