BF Webinars Spring/Summer 2018

After a longer break, the German Federal Flat Glass Association (Bundesverband Flachglas) offers again the webinar program of the technical training series (all webinars in German language). Basically, those webinars are open for everybody.  Especially for newcomers in the glass industry, they are an excellent opportunity to quickly get an overview of the required knowhow. Primarily, the webinars of the fall/winter season focus on topics for beginners, whereas the  spring/summer will provide webinars for deeper knowledge.

My contribution as a speaker for the spring/summer 2018 program will be:

  • 28.2.2018 at 10am Abstandhalter/Warme Kante II (insulating glass spacers/warm edge part 2)
  • 8.3.2018 at 10am  Glasbruch Teil II (glass breakage part 2)
  • 15.3.2018 at 2pm Sprossen (glazing bars)
  • 26.4.2018 at 10am Kondensation bei Isolierglas (condensation on insulating glass)

You can find more information on the topics of my webinars as well as the full program (in German language)  here.

The Online application on the BF websites is here.

Windows with Muntin/Georgian Bars – better than thought

Glazing bars (Muntin or Georgian Bars, “Sprossen”) are an indispensible instrument to design the appearance of buildings. But not only aluminum spacers in the edge bond of insulating glass elements are thermally-wise disadvantageous. Bars between the panes of a multiple glazing create thermal discontinuities, that have to be taken into consideration when determining the Uw-value of windows.

In my new webinar “Sprossen” for the BF (German Federal Flat Glass Association) on Wednesday, April 13th, 2016, I will explain why such glazing bars occur on windows at all, which types of bars are possible with multiple plane insulating glass and how Muntin/Georgian windows can be determined thermally-wise in a fairer manner compared to the high surcharges from the product standard for windows, EN 14351-1. (The webinar will be in German language).
