To help overcome concerns about adoption of new technology, a full-scale mockup of a high thermally performing curtain wall incorporating architectural insulation modules was recently successfully tested by an independent third-party.
Increasingly stringent building energy regulations force strict thermal performance requirements for building envelopes, while design trends toward creating soaring, iconic monuments of aluminum, glass, and steel.
Parents and administrators across the country are clamoring for solutions to make their children’s schools more secure. Areas of K?12 educational projects under significant scrutiny are doors and windows—and, more specifically, the glass.
Energy efficiency is becoming an ever-increasing goal, but it can be difficult with fenestration due to a need to balance performance requirements while remaining economically viable and minimally impacting the environment.
