Please help me understand this R40+ window design
If you read down the article, they've got a "diagonal" model that is supposed to achieve
R113 something ... WTF????
Why aren't we all using this as walls ?
I don't understand what are the principles behind this sorcery,
how could something this shallow achieve such a R value ?
Would like to discuss your ideas about this design ?
any help finding the patents would be good also :)
IF they can achieve anything over R50 in a window, how come aren't we all working
toward developping this idea for using all over walls ???
I would quickly think that they are using convection for some purpose in the diagonal type window,
i don't see what other benefits diagonal lines as such would have .
