Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
This course introduces the role of a thermal barrier in improving the thermal performance of windows, doors, storefront and curtain wall applications. Advancements in material science and the aluminum profile of the fenestration are enabling window assemblies to achieve lower U-values than previously possible, allowing designers to deliver building envelopes that provide access to daylight and views, without compromising the thermal efficiency of the project.
