Glass TEXpo Seminar Program Features
Timely Topics; Event Pre-Registration Closes in Two Weeks
March 8, 2010
Glass TEXpo 2010 is set to take place April 15 - 16, 2010, at the
El Tropicano Holiday Inn Riverwalk in San Antonio. This year's event
will include a top-notch seminar program that will cover a number
of pertinent industry topics, such as hurricane glazing and energy
codes and LEED ratings.
Included in the seminar lineup will be a presentation on hurricane-resistant
glazing systems that will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. on Thursday,
April 15. Presented by Greg Taylor, Dallas-based regional manager
for YKK AP, this session will review how the International Building
Code interprets hurricane-prone regions and considerations for fenestration
product selection, with a focus on Gulf Coast requirements. Participants
will learn how hurricane-approved products are designed, tested
and installed, as well as the difference between large and small
missile impact requirements and where those zones occur on a building.
Taylor also will discuss how the ASCE-7 wind load structural requirements
affect the selection of a building's components and cladding.
From 12:20- 1:20 p.m. on April 15, Tom Minnon, CSI, CDT, LEED AP,
and Derry, N.H.-based regional manager for YKK AP, will present
Complying with Energy Codes and LEED. With an increasing number
of city, state and federal agencies establishing and administering
guidelines for energy use in buildings, this seminar will review
how these codes affect the type of glass and glazing systems that
are specified and installed. Participants will learn about ASHRAE
energy guidelines and NFRC Certificates of Compliance to determine
overall U-values for a system based on glass type. Minnon will also
discuss how glazing systems can contribute to LEED credits.
