Cellular Glass in High Performance Roofs
- 1 hr1 hour
- Online or in-person
PROGRAM SUMMARY High-performing commercial roofs must be resilient and designed to perform over the long run, without compromising on the client’s commitment to sustainability. Cellular glass insulation delivers a portfolio of performance attributes including impermeability, non-combustibility, long-term thermal performance, compressive strength, and resilience throughout the assembly. This course will spotlight real-world roof assemblies that leverage cellular glass insulation to achieve performance without compromise. LEARNING OBJECTIVES • Understand the composition of cellular glass insulation and identify its intrinsic value in building applications. • Learn how to design and specify roof assemblies to reduce risk of energy loss, moisture ingress, and other modes of roof failure. • Identify the value of cellular glass insulation in sustainable construction by examining lifecycle costs, service life and recyclability. • Select roof assemblies that meet fire and structural integrity requirements for the building application.
