  • This course will demonstrate the process of building custom laser-cut, thermally broken, steel windows and doors in a manufacturing environment from CAD drawing to finished product. The plant tour will guide the participant through every step in the design and fabrication process. It will illustrate the differences between the welded galvanized steel method and the laser cut stainless steel method.

  • Selecting energy-efficient fenestration products that promote comfort, daylighting and views, and natural ventilation while supporting environmental impact concerns can further discussions regarding resource efficiency, material manufacturing, waste reduction, and life-cycle impact. This course examines the attributes of thermally broken aluminum windows and doors and explains why they are energy-efficient, sustainable, fenestration products.

  • The design of laser-cut steel, thermally broken windows and doors was fueled by the need to produce a steel window and door that would meet the ever increasingly stringent energy efficiency building codes of today and tomorrow, while not losing any of the “classic-timeless” aesthetics that steel windows and doors have become known for. This course examines the fabrication, thermal performance, and design and finish options of steel windows and doors.
