1 Hour Online Presentation
Presented by Vincent Wardill
Have you ever wondered why we are so reliant in Australia on Air-Conditioning in Summer and Heating in Winter?
The frame of a window has a significant impact on the overall energy efficiency of any window and door – including that of double-glazed systems.
While double glazing is seen as a benchmark for energy efficiency, to select double glazing with a standard aluminum frame is only going halfway to achieving a high performing energy efficient window.
We expand on this topic and explain how important glazing is in the building envelope and to make our built indoor environment comfortable
At the end of this presentation attendees will:
- What material is used for Thermal Breaks typically in the Window Industry
- What the benefits are of the High-Performance Glazing?
