This course will discuss the benefits of specifying high-performance architectural glass to improve the energy efficiency of buildings while reducing their operating costs and carbon emissions. An understanding of solar energy spectrum and common glass performance measures, in addition to the manufacturing processes for pyrolytic and magnetron sputter vacuum disposition low e-coating. The course will help learners to differentiate between passive and solar control low-e coatings and different glass performance measures. Finally, the course will analyze how low-e coatings can improve energy efficiency and assist with earning LEED credit contributions.
This course will enable you to be able to define the solar energy spectrum and common glass performance measures, discuss the manufacturing processes for pyrolytic and MSVD low-e coatings, identify how passive and solar control low-e coatings differ and impact glass performance measures, and how low-e coatings improve energy efficiency and earn LEED® credit contributions.
Glass Production, Processing & Performance provides an introduction to the different types of glass that are available and how to use them. Significant emphasis is placed on coated glasses, including the common types of low-e application processes and the impacts on energy and environmental performance. In addition, different types of flat glass processing and fabrication methods, as they relate to specifying glass, are also covered.
