Hand-sized booklet summarizes key factors, online aids for proper glass specification.

Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) announced that it has published “Glass Design Guidelines,” a pocket-size resource that architects can review with colleagues, engineers, glazing contractors, glass fabricators and other building professionals when drafting or reviewing glass specifications for building projects.

The booklet features a convenient fold-out section that details the eight factors specifiers and design professionals must consider during the glass design/specification process, including safety, wind and snow loads, thermal stress, and surface orientation.

The guide also contains details about the full suite of Vitro Glass specification tools available online at www.vitroglazings.com or the Vitro Glass Education Center.

They include a Search Tool for Vitro Glass’s extensive selection of advanced architectural glass products; a Project Gallery that shows selected products on finished buildings throughout North America; and an advanced Construct Tool that architects can use to configure and compare custom insulating glass units (IGUs) then generate finished industry-standard three-part specifications for the products they select.

Robert Struble, manager, brand and communications, Vitro Architectural Glass, said the guide is a versatile resource for anyone interested in learning more about designing and building with architectural glass.

“This booklet covers a lot of ground in a condensed, easy-to-use format that can be accessed quickly,” he explained.

“Architects, specifiers, glazing contractors and other building professionals now will have one more valuable resource that can help them manage building projects.”

The Vitro Glass Education Center is a continuously expanding library of technical information that offers building professionals objective, user-focused information about designing, specifying and building with glass.

The portal delivers information in a variety of platforms, including short videos, illustrations and educational features.
