Learning Objectives:

  1. Compare and contrast multi-cavity IGUs with double-glazed IGUs
  2. Explain the spacer options available for multi-cavity IGUs
  3. List three performance attributes to consider when designing for multi-cavity IGUs
  4. List three challenges to consider when designing for multi-cavity IGUs

This course is part of the Glass and Glazing Design Academy

The demand for energy savings, building occupancy safety and comfort have enabled the glass and glazing industry to bring many innovations to market. This course will provide an introduction to the use of multi-cavity insulating glass units, discuss the drivers to its selection of typical double-glazing units, and describe the design challenges of benefits associated with using multi-cavity IGUs.
