Learn how vacuum insulating class (VIG) units are different from typical architectural insulating glass units (IGUs) and how VIG technologies can meet a vast range of needs, ranging from energy savings and occupant comfort to acoustic improvement.

This course also examines the energy performance of VIG units compared to traditional product options and reviews specific code requirements that VIG products can meet and exceed.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify how the components of vacuum insulating glass (VIG) are different from a typical architectural insulating glass units and what the benefits are.
  • Understand the enhanced performance of VIGs and how they can contribute to lowering building energy costs, reducing noise, and creating a sustainable built environment.
  • Reference specific code requirements that VIGs can meet and how they are positioned to meet future codes and regulations.
  • Understand how VIGs can positively contribute to the reduction of operational carbon.
