(TOPEKA) - The Protective Glazing Council (PGC) International’s monthly webinar series has been a tremendous success for the organization, and that success continues with a detailed look at glass block and its ability to both add beauty and protection to a project.

The webinar, part of an ongoing free series for architects, building owners, specifiers, glazing contractors and others in the architectural community, features Peter Atherton of Pittsburgh Corning, which is known for producing top‐quality glass block applications. “The number of people attending our free webinars from the comfort of their office is great,” said Brian Pitman, Director of Marketing and Communications for the organization. “We have several companies calling in with a whole host

of their employees watching on a projector in a conference room. Plus, the interactive Q&A’s at the end of each session has been incredibly informative.” Atherton’s presentation on glass block kicks off at Noon EST, March 27th.
