Edgetech I.G., which regularly participates in GPD conferences, is sending subject-matter experts Tracy Rogers, technical director, and Christoph Rubel, European technical support manager, to present in Finland.
Rogers will present “Consideration for the Condensation Resistance of Fenestration Assemblies,” as part of the Processing program. His presentation provides an in-depth look at U-factor and condensation resistance basics, system ratings for thermal performance and the relative effects of U-factor and condensation resistance using third-party data.
“Performance factors that may have a minimal impact on U-factor and/or SHGC may be critical in the prevention of condensation formation that may, if not controlled, lead to health concerns and building component or system damage,” Rogers said. “In Finland, I will compare the difference between the performance of fenestration products relative to U-factor and condensation resistance and outline principal design features to improve the latter.”
Rubel’s presentation “What Differences Real Warm-Edge Spacers Can Make in Insulating Glass,” focuses on how the spacer system impacts the energy efficiency and sustainability of IG systems.
“Besides all energy-related thoughts, design plays a key role in building construction,” Rubel said. “New building component technologies should support design ideas, not limit them. My GPD presentation will focus on how warm-edge technology can enable designers to take advantage of daylighting, without sacrificing efficiency. I will also discuss best practices in manufacturing and achieving optimal IG durability.”
