  Patient Privacy & Tranquility: Optimizing Healing Environments using IGU with Integrated Louvers


FREE

Description

Patient privacy and tranquility are top priorities for healthcare facilities to reduce stress and promote healing. Recent studies have shown that excessive noise, glare and lack of privacy can create stress in patients of all ages, which significantly impedes the healing process. More and more healthcare design professionals are specifying design elements that promote privacy and tranquility – all while underscoring hygiene. These trends include: • A desire to better manage privacy with easily adjustable vision control options in patient rooms, nurses’ stations, surgical areas etc. • A desire to better manage or filter light from external sources (for both interior and exterior windows) to reduce glare and optimize thermal efficiencies. • A move toward improved air quality and away...

  Electrochromic Glazing - Dynamic Control of Solar Energy


FREE

Description

Electrochromic glazing provides a dynamic solution to control solar heat gain and light, while preserving the view and connection to the outdoors. Numerous studies have shown improved learning environments, increased productivity, and better health outcomes when that view and connection to the outdoors is maintained. Electrochromic provides the capability to control solar gain and light levels based on outdoor conditions without blocking the view. Lighting, heating and cooling consume at least 65 percent of the energy used in a typical building, and effectively controlling solar heat gain has a major impact on all three factors. This course details how electrochromic glazing can be used to meter and control the amount of light and solar energy entering a building to provide...
