27 May 2020 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


1.5 ConEd Learning Hours

The seminar will describe the Inline Fiberglass Reinforced polymer window and door system for institutional, light commercial, and residential applications.

Inline is a Canadian company and a world leader in pultrusion technology, which is providing leading-edge window and door systems. With its headquarters and main production facilities located in Toronto, Inline products are sold around the world.

Inline Fiberglass “green” products are environmentally friendly and sustainable. They offer superior energy efficiency and low maintenance demand. Currently found in LEED-designated Platinum, Gold, and Silver projects in Canada and the United States, all Inline products meet or exceed OBC SB10/SB12 Code and are tested in accordance with the latest standards for physical and thermal performance (NAFS AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440-08 AND A440-11 ANSI/NFRC100 [U-Factor], ANSI/NRRC200- 2014 [SHGC and VT]).

Inline is now manufacturing fibreglass doors at its facility. The door designs will include rail and stile as well as a slab-embossed entry or garden doors. Its all-fibreglass exterior doors are available with a myriad of glass panel sizes, shapes, textures, and decorative glass patterns, and in a wide colour spectrum.

Inline staff tried to mimic the design of their windows into their new door products—fibreglass frame and a fibreglass slab only—to offer what the company calls the “glass on glass” advantage.

In order to satisfy recent requirement of OBC first plane of protection and second plane of protection on the building envelope, Inline has modified the design resistant performance on its windows and doors. The company now offer its fibreglass-reinforced polymer products with ventilation, drainage, and effective pressure equalization.

Learning objectives for this session include:

  • reviewing the physical property of fibreglass and classification of FG windows in OBC;
  • examining the difference between fibreglass, aluminum, and vinyl frame in the window industry;
  • reviewing design concepts and installation requirements for proper drainage; and
  • utilizing proper detailing techniques for moisture management.
