Today, most existing – even modern – buildings have surprisingly low thermal performance from their building envelope. This increases the ever-growing, and unnecessary strain on the environment and our society’s energy infrastructure.
Building codes and energy standards are incrementally becoming more stringent, but cannot out-pace the available building technology when demanding greater performance. Essentially, for a building code improvement, there first has to be new tech, then you can change a code; it doesn’t work in the opposite order.
Now, new fiberglass window technology has been invented, which for the very first time brings passive-house level thermal performance to a commercial-scale, cost effective fenestration system. Learn about the latest developments with fiberglass and Passive House window technology, including fiberglass window wall and expanded non-combustible construction applications.

Advancements in Passive House Fiberglass Window Technology [PDF] - 16812KBApprovals: AIA, AIBC, USGBC, CPD (BC builders). New fiberglass window technology has been invented, which, for the very first time brings passive-house level thermal performance to commercial-scale, cost effective fenestration systems. Learn what characteristics of fiberglass window technology has been further improved, and discover the lunch of the world's first FIBERGLASS window wall fenestration system.
The Effective Thermal Performance of the Building Enclosure - Exterior Walls (June 2019 Update) [PDF] - 6941KBApprovals: AIA, AIBC, USGBC, CPD. This is a 2019 update to "The Effective Thermal Performance of the Building Enclosure" - which addresses the fundamental questions of why to control thermal bridging, how to do it effectively in various cladding support assemblies on opaque walls, and how to differential between the characteristics of many proprietary systems now on the market.
- Approvals: AIBC. This presentation was created with the new adoption of the NECB 2011 in Alberta. It gives a general overview of the code, and goes more in depth on envelope requirements and what that means in terms of traditional building assemblies and new technologies.
