Event Description

Join a lively panel discussion on high performance windows. We'll cover some basics, as well as diving into in-depth technical details. Some of the topics we'll explore include frame performance (e.g. whats the impact of a warm edge spacer?), glazing performance (e.g. balancing solar gains and u-value), certifications (e.g. what the process and testing for PH certifications) as well as practical questions around installation concerns, lead times, etc. Bring your burning questions as the panelists will spend a good portion of the time fielding questions from the audience.
