  • Why Fiberglass for Windows and Doors

    1 LU AIA

    This course will take a closer look at the introduction of fiberglass frames and their benefits, while comparing them to other common window frame materials. It will then move on to discuss the sustainable benefits that fiberglass offers, such as strength, high strength-to-weight ratio, stiffness, compatible thermal expansion, natural insulation and low thermal transmittance. Understanding the benefits of fiberglass is important and so is knowing how to properly specify a window frame. We will wrap up the course by discussing a number of factors architects should consider when specifying window frames. Take the course.
