Designing high-performance facades: spec the edge
The frame of a window (or glazing) has a significant impact on the overall energy efficiency of any glazing system, be they windows, doors, etc., – including that of double-glazing itself.
While double-glazing is seen as a benchmark for energy efficiency, to select double-glazing with a standard aluminium frame will only halfway achieve a high-performing energy-efficient window. This presentation will expand on this topic and explain how important glazing is in the building envelope, to make our built indoor environment more comfortable.
