After witnessing growing online consumer demand for impartial advice on glass and glazing products and services, the GGF has decided to create this new valuable resource where people can get independent up-to-date information, advice and inspiration to help them improve their homes.

Giles Willson, GGF Managing Director “ is in many ways a necessary initiative by the GGF. With so much information now available online to consumers, it is only right that GGF as the leading authority in glass and glazing should offer consumer information on areas such as energy efficient glazing and condensation as well as guidance on protection and conciliation, all in one place.”

James Lee, Head of GGF Group Marketing and Communications, said: “Currently the GGF’s trade-facing website receives over one hundred thousand visits each year from homeowners looking for independent and practical advice on issues around glass and glazing.
