As natural disaster threats increase, terrorist concerns continue to be significant, and the design community pushes the limits of what is possible, glass technology is rapidly evolving.
This course will cover the evolution of glass over the past five years, focusing on a new generation of specialty windows and skylights that can passively withstand impact, fire, and extreme conditions, as well as push the limits of scale as they pertain to oversized applications.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have a thorough understanding of new applications and specifications for oversized, impact, fire rated and specialty window systems and skylights that can be applied in the rapidly evolving construction industry.
