Efficiency State of Mind
LEEDing the Way
Building managers should know that the current availability of insulating glass technologies superior to standard low-e glass enables the selection of more energy-efficient glass as part of a commercial or institutional building’s integrated energy conservation system. With its performance capabilities, suspended film insulating glass offers an opportunity for a project to flexibly achieve certification under the US Green Building Council’s (USGBC’s) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
The thermal and solar shading performance of suspended film insulating glass enables glazing solutions that can achieve help achieve LEED credits. Categories under which credits can be earned include:
* Sustainable Sites (SS), Site Selection
* Energy and Atmosphere (EA), Optimize Energy Performance
* Materials and Resources (MR), Building Reuse, Regional Materials
* Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ), Increased Ventilation, Thermal Comfort, and Daylight & Views
