The Glass Association of North America (GANA) and the International Window Cleaners Association (IWCA) have partnered together to provide an updated edition of the Proper Procedures for Cleaning Architectural Glass Products Glass Informational Bulletin (GIB).  Architectural glass products play a major role in the comfort of the living and working environment of today’s homes and

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.”

Urmilla Sowell, GANA Technical Director, shares her thoughts on the importance of the joint effort between GANA and IWCA.

“GANA’s Tempering Division members were happy to partner with IWCA on this important document. This bulletin helps promote best-practice approaches for entire glazing industry.”
