TOPIC: Windows and Doors – Maximising Performance.
OVERVIEW: This presentation covers a number of key issues faced everyday in the selection of glazing products for a building. It includes a review of current applicable Australian Standards, its seeks to clarify what is required in relation to wind design pressures and water penetration resistance including testing information and video about AS2047 and AS1170.2. It also covers some general information required around energy performance of products and options to get a better Acoustic outcome.
LEARNING OUTCOMES: An ability to apply Australian Standards to the selected glazing products, being able to Identify wind design pressure requirements and testing methods, understanding Thermal performance and Defining Acoustic performance.
PRESENTER: Donna Seccombe.
TOPIC: Door Hardware Scheduling.
