Provides an overview of optimizing commercial fenestration with thermal barriers and high performance glazing in aluminum window framing to maximize daylighting and thermal efficiencies in the building envelope.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
•discuss the sustainability, performance, and daylighting design benefits of optimized fenestration systems, including the life cycle of aluminum as a durable and recyclable frame material, and high performance glazing components to increase insulation in the overall window assembly .
•describe the methods that measure heat transfer effects, condensation resistance, and ratings for the outdoor‒indoor sound transmission values in thermal barrier window products .
•explain the role of thermal barriers, and compare the performance of polyurethane polymer pour and debridge systems with polyamide strip systems, and.
•observe a range of applications of optimized, energy-efficient commercial fenestration in built project case studies.
