We see glass every day in countless applications, you’ve probably already seen it in a dozen different forms already today. But what exactly is glass made of? How is it produced and where does it come from? We are going to look into the versatility of glass and learn some of the industry fundamentals.  We want you to come away with a new appreciation for glass and how much you actually interact with it every day. We will dive into the applications of glass as it relates to the building envelope, some of the relevant standards to be aware of as well as Building Code implications.  Finally we will look at design case studies to solidify your understanding.

Learning Objective 1 – What is glass and how is it made? Where does it come from?

Learning Objective 2 – Describing various heat treatment methods and impacts to the envelope

Learning Objective 3 – Be able to identify which standards are relevant and have an understanding of the design process in specific applications

This talk is being presented by Stephen Epp. This Lunch ‘n Learn is good for 1 CEH credit.
