Interior Glazing Solutions for Optimum Daylighting, Health, Safety + Wellness
Earn 1 AIA HSW LU.

Topics discussed include a comparison of how five commonly specified light-transmitting interior panel types meet key design objectives such as optimizing daylight, balancing views and privacy, ease of installation, sustainability and aesthetics.

The benefits of daylighting and views on occupant wellness and productivity are addressed, as well as the increasing role of wellness, sustainability and ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) criteria in workplace and business trends – in particular in the design of hybrid work, in business planning and in investor/stakeholder evaluations.

Honeycomb technology is presented with a focus on how it provides unique Health, Safety and Wellness benefits. Daylighting, views, visual privacy/safety and impact resistance/safety are covered.
