No other building material brings together daylight, transparency and style the way that glass can. Fortunately, today’s architects can benefit from advanced technology that enables glass to perform other functions such as protect against fire, blast, hurricane, ballistic, UV or harness energy from sun.

It will also provide the latest code updates, as well as profile case studies that show high-performance glazing in action.
