November 8, 2018

The effort to improve the Energy Efficiency of buildings is primarily driven by Energy Codes and Green Standards. This course covers the latest developments in the ICC codes and ASHRAE standards. Through group discussion, the practitioner will learn how to select vertical fenestration systems that meet these new requirements and whole building energy goals. It also reviews whole fenestration system performance (frame and glazing), and explains compliance methods for the commercial market such as AAMA 507 and NFRC Component Modeling Approach (CMA) program. This class is 1.0 HSW/LU.

• Understand the Energy Code requirements for vertical fenestration systems
• Learn how to select the proper fenestration system to meet the solar and thermal performance requirements of a project
• Maximize day-lighting through the use of shading devices with proper fenestration design choices
• Understand compliance methods for commercial fenestration in accordance to AAMA 507 and NFRC’s Component Modeling Approach (CMA)

Focus Points in Greater Detail:
• Tweaking Aluminum Commercial Fenestration for Optimal Thermal Performance
• Reviewing the Technology: Pour & De-Bridge VS Polyamide Struts
• Comparing and Specifying
• Relevant Test Report Analysis
