Trulite’s Jeff Haberer will give a presentation on altitude and insulating glass (IG) technology at the upcoming Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) Fall Technical Conference, to be held October 5-8 in Denver.
“This presentation won’t tell you who is guilty and who’s not,” says Haberer, “but it will review the serious issues that can arise when insulating glass units are taken to high altitudes. 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.”
Haberer is the director of technical services at Trulite Glass and Aluminum Solutions. He has a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Minnesota and 29 years of experience in the glass industry, working in R&D and technical services. Haberer, who has expertise in coated, tempered, insulating, and laminated glass, plays several leadership roles and is a very active member of multiple trade and standards organizations.
