Seminar Description
The health and welfare of the occupant is just one of the areas that are positive effected with the addition of innovative high performance fenestration. Through codes and personal choice, the need for maximum thermal performance has grown immensely within the glass and glazing world. This course will review basic thermal principles and terminology in the fenestration industry; examine the key areas that disrupt the occupant comfort and health, review testing procedures, industry standards and glazing performance related to thermal performance and provide insight into innovations in the curtain wall segment.

Learning Objectives
• Understand the basics of thermal breaks, its effect on the performance of the structure and benefit to the occupant and environment.
• Identify the key areas that affect occupant comfort, health and well-being and code paths (prescriptive and performance) involved with them.
• Understand how overall system results include safety and structural performance as well as energy data.
• Review and understand the available products that meet the parameters for a sustainable project focus.
