New Free Online Continuing Education Course: Sun Control Devices for Energy Efficient Design
Exterior shading devices offer a number of advantages that contribute to a more sustainable building, including minimizing cooling costs, reducing peak electricity demand, and controlling glare. These benefits result in greater occupant comfort and improved productivity. This course provides a review of exterior aluminum shading device systems, including the components, finishes, and design and engineering considerations, as well as a discussion of how shading strategies contribute to LEED® accreditation.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- list the advantages of designing with exterior shading devices that contribute to a more sustainable building
- explain the types, common components, and finishes of exterior shading devices
- state the design and engineering considerations related to shading device systems in order to specify and detail the most efficient shading strategy, and
- discuss how shading strategies contribute to LEED points.
