The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) will host a webinar entitled “Gas Filling of Insulating Glass Units, Part 1” on Tuesday, January 18 at 11:30 a.m. Eastern.

The first installment of this series, led by Randi Ernst, President of FDR Design, will provide a baseline understanding of the mechanics and benefits of a gas-filled sealed insulating glass unit. In a future session, we will delve into a more technically advanced overview and demonstration of the gas filling process, including quality control testing and field testing. This webinar is complimentary and open to the public.

“FGIA is excited to share Randi’s expertise on this important industry topic,” said Amy Roberts, FGIA Director of Canadian and Technical Glass Operations. “For those who want to learn more about gas filling of insulated glass units, this is a great introduction. We look forward to hosting more detailed information via Part 2 in the near future.”
