Energy Efficient Glazing
AIBC Accredited (1 Core Unit)

This presentation will focus on the latest energy efficient glass options available today, including the difference between passive and solar control glass, low-e coatings, how low-e coatings impact glass performance and their impact on energy performance in buildings.

AIBC Accredited (1 Core Unit)

Incidences of falling glass from exterior balcony railings in high-rise condominiums have resulted in new standards and building code requirements to address post-breakage performance of glass. This presentation examines the safety concerns around glass in railing systems and explores the use of laminated glass interlayers and the role they play in glass retention after breakage.

AIBC Accredited (1 Core Unit)

Advances in architectural glass and laminating interlayer technologies have expanded the design options in structural glass performance. This presentation details how the stiffness characteristics of ionoplast interlayers are beneficial when designing glass flooring and stair treads, balustrades, point-supported facades, canopies and skylights.

This is an AIBC accredited event - architects can earn 3 CEU credits
