The Advancements of Window Systems and Specialty Oversized, Impact & Fire-Rated Windows and Skylights


The technology of the glass industry is evolving rapidly as natural disaster threats increase, terroristic concerns 
continue to be significant, and the design community continues to push the limits of what is possible.


This course will cover the evolution of glass over the past 5 years, a new generation of specialty windows and 
skylights which offer the ability to passively withstand impact, fire, and extreme conditions, as well as push the limits  of size as it pertains to oversized applications.


Upon completion of this course, the participants will have a thorough understanding of the new applications and 
specifications for oversized, impact, fire rated and specialty window systems and skylights that can be applied today in  the rapidly evolving construction industry.
