High Performance Windows

Join LA.IDEA and AIA|DC for a presentation on High Performance Glazing, explaining its benefits and uses, followed by a Q&A session with an expert on the topic.  Recently, windows have undergone an incredible technological revolution. Explore how different aspects of glazing can be manipulated for increased performance, including glass layering and gas filled spaces to increase energy efficiency in both historic and new structures. Participants will learn how Low E coatings work, both from a scientific and application perspective.
