Three Ways to "Steel" the Look

Course Description: In this CEU, we’ll explore the history of using steel as a window material, its use in modern window design, and ways to replicate the look using alternate materials. Architects must balance performance, aesthetics, and budget when comparing alternative material types that help achieve the look of steel fenestration products. We will discuss the design considerations, such as performance, energy efficiency, and aesthetics, that will improve your ability to advise clients on what the best window solution is for their next project.

Learning Objectives:

• Review the historical development and use of steel windows.
• Compare common attributes of steel systems.
• Discuss the design considerations leading to overall satisfaction with steel windows and doors and describe how their aesthetic attributes contribute to interior environments that are livable and comfortable.
• Review alternative materials that help achieve a similar look.
