The AIA Dallas BEC provides a forum for the design and construction industry to address building enclosures—the exterior systems of buildings that play such a critical role in building performance and energy efficiency.


Ceramic window films reduce energy usage and operating expenses while enhancing facilities.  They are virtually transparent without the negatives associated with the older dye and metal-based tints.  Ceramic window film seals the envelope of a building at its weakest point for energy losses, the glass.  It even holds up well in a salt water environment and will not degrade in performance over time.  It works so well, up to 18 LEED credits are associated with this single technology.
