AAMA and IGMA Task Group Work on Consumer Guide for Understanding Glass Standards

Date: 31 October 2013

Members of AAMA’s Glass Material Council (GMC) Marketing Committee and Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance's (IGMA) Visual Quality Task Group are developing a consumer guide for homeowners which will explain allowable glass obstructions according to industry standards.

Following AAMA Board of Directors’ approval at the 2012 Summer Conference, the AAMA/IGMA Understanding Glass Standards White Paper Task Group was formed.During an August 2013 conference call, task group members reviewed a draft of the consumer guide, and tasks were assigned on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) portion of the consumer guide, as well as information on the definitions of “types of glass.”

Additionally, AAMA will be working with IGMA to send out a survey to insulating glass and fenestration manufacturers to ask what issues should be addressed in the paper.

Following the AAMA Fall Conference, a conference call will be scheduled for November (tentatively) to review the aforementioned tasks. If you would like more information on the development of the consumer guide, contact Sam Sinkhorn, AAMA Communications Coordinator.
