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.
