Trulite’s Jeff Haberer will present a straightforward look altitude and insulating glass technology at the upcoming Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance Fall Technical Conference, to be held from 5-8 October in Denver.
His presentation is part of IGMA’s technical program covering all things IG, according to an association release. The presentation “will review the serious issues that can arise when insulating glass units are taken to high altitudes,” Haberer said. “It will also explain the simple physics at play and point out key variables that make IG units susceptible to changes in altitude. It will also review some of the most common mitigation practices to alleviate high altitude concerns.”
