commercial office spaces by providing natural daylight, views of the surroundings, thermal comfort and design aesthetics.

This GIB describes cleaning procedures that generally apply to most architectural glass products.

“This joint technical Bulletin is the pinnacle of a huge cooperative effort between GANA and IWCA.,” shares Paul West, IWCA Glass Committee Chair. “The end result is real world cleaning guidelines that will assist in maintaining the integrity of architectural glass surfaces.”
