Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the composition of cellular glass insulation and identify its intrinsic value in building applications.
  2. Investigate how to design and specify roof assemblies to reduce risk of energy loss, moisture ingress, and other modes of roof failure.
  3. Identify the value of cellular glass insulation in sustainable construction by examining life cycle costs, service life, and recyclability.
  4. Select roof assemblies that meet fire and structural integrity requirements for the building application.

Commercial roofs must be resilient, meaning they are designed to perform over the long run without compromising on the client’s commitment to sustainability. Cellular glass insulation delivers a portfolio of performance attributes — it’s impermeable, noncombustible, and resilient, not to mention its long-term thermal performance and compressive strength. This course will spotlight real-word roof assemblies that leverage cellular glass insulation to achieve performance without compromise.
