The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance is pleased to announce the opening of registration for this fall’s in-person Insulating Glass Fabricators Workshop.

This event will take place November 3-5 at the Intertek facility in Plano, TX. Register before October 8, when registration closes.

“We are thrilled to once again be able to host this popular industry event in-person. We know the value of this predominantly hands-on, participatory event and what an incredible learning experience it is,” said Janice Yglesias, FGIA Executive Director.

Since its launch in 2016, the IG Fabricators Workshop has hosted more than 300 practitioners of the insulating glass industry, leading them through the most important aspects of fabricating and testing IG units. The workshop, led by industry experts, features classroom education along with extensive hands-on experience to discover best practices for cleaning, cutting and handling glass, desiccants, sealants, gas fill, frost point and more. Below are the seven stations planned for this workshop:

  • Glass cutting and washing
  • Spacer and IG fabrication
  • Sealants, hot melt sealant, sealant adhesion and butterfly test
  • Volatile fog
  • Gas filling and measurement
  • Desiccants and desiccant matrix
  • Forensic investigation of IG unit failures

Yglesias went on to say, “Safety is our first priority, and participants can be confident that appropriate precautions will be taken prior to, during and following the workshop based on CDC and state safety recommendations in addition to facility safety requirements at the time of the event.”

Registration is now open until October 8. Space is limited to 32 participants and registrations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Visit FGIAonline.org/IGworkshop for more details.

For those unable to attend in person, an IG Workshop video series is under development, featuring a condensed version of the workshop in several 20–30-minute segments. It is anticipated to be available for purchase later this year.
