Newest edition reflects advances in glass and glazing

The National Glass Association (NGA) is proud to announce the publication of the updated GANA Glazing Manual, International Year of Glass (IYOG) Edition. NGA’s GANA Glazing Manual is recognized as the definitive source of information in the glass and glazing industry.

This comprehensive manual describes primary and fabricated glass products, quality standards, design considerations, general and specific glazing guidelines and glazing in hazardous locations. NGA’s GANA Glazing Manual is often cited as the “must read” publication for anyone new to the industry and the reference resource for glass and glazing veterans.

Glass in buildings serves many purposes, often simultaneously, to enhance the comfort and protection of occupants. Improvements and new products and applications continue to impact the built environment, and these are reflected in this newest edition.

New sections in the IYOG Edition include sustainability, recyclability, physiological benefits, vacuum insulating glazing (VIG), daylighting and biophilia, glass protective barriers, glass in photovoltaic applications, and bird-friendly glazing.

“NGA’s GANA Glazing Manual is the essential reference manual for everyone working in the glass and glazing industry,” says Urmilla Sowell, NGA Technical Services & Advocacy Director. “The IYOG Edition highlights the many functions of glass in buildings as a key material to address energy performance initiatives, human comfort and security, as well as health benefits to building occupants and the animals that share our environment.”

NGA’s GANA Glazing Manual is available to purchase in hard copy or downloadable formats in the online NGA Store as follows:

Hard copy (plus applicable s&h fees): $69.95 NGA member | $139.95 nonmember

Downloadable: $64.95 NGA member | $134.95 nonmember

NGA thanks the task group members who helped make the update of this manual possible.
