Presentation Sponsored by: TUBELITE Storefront, Curtainwall & Entrances
Presenter: Rick Hillesheim 

 

Program Overview
The combination of evolving commercial energy codes and building requirements, mixed with a myriad of
manufacturers’ performance data, often result in a misinterpretation of fenestration thermal performance.
This presentation provides an understanding of fenestration total unit U-Factor, explains how different
components of a window’s assembly (glass, aluminum framing and glass spacer) affect U-Factor, reviews
testing methods for U-Factor, and provides guidance for developing accurate U-Factor specification
language.

Learning Objectives
 Identify five attributes affecting window U-Factor.
 Employ at least three design options to improve window U-Factor.
 Differentiate between NFRC and AAMA testing and certification processes.
 Draft non-defective specification requirements for U-Factor.
 Recognize other important energy related window design factors and the importance of a balanced design.
