About the topic: Glass and glazing systems need to be understood when selecting the appropriate products to address the needs of any project. In Victoria projects vary from clear glass to triple-glazed, double low-emissive glazing with inert gas-filled sealed units. This presentation discusses the implications of glass selection as it affects the building’s energy performance. The visible transmission of light, as well as the invisible range needs to be considered when specifying fenestration.
