Design Considerations for Complex Configurations

Roland Rossman
Garibaldi Glass

Project Justification
Architects, designers and glazing contractors are specifying more complex products with dynamic glazings, complex constructions that include opaque interior lites, asymmetrical cavities and glass thickness, unique materials within the cavity, bent glass units. Current testing protocols may not address durability performance as they do with typical insulating glass constructions.

Reports to:  Certification Committee

Project Product

  1. Review rationale for current product testing for insulating glass units.
  2. Develop design considerations for complex configurations.

Project Deliverables
Develop design considerations for insulating glass unit complex constructions
