Pocket-sized design resource offers up-to-date information on designing with glass

Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) has updated its Glass Design Handbook, a pocket-size resource for architects to use when drafting or reviewing glass specifications for building projects.

Updates to the popular architectural resource include recommendations on evaluating color in glass samples and mock-ups, as well as opportunities to earn LEED® (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) credit through glass selections.

The eight-page booklet, which debuted in 2017 as the Vitro Glass Design Guidelines, highlights the eight factors specifiers and design professionals must consider during the glass design and specification processes, including safety; wind and snow loads; surface orientation; color shift; thermal stress; energy and sustainable design; inclusion of materials in insulting glass unit (IGU) airspaces; and aesthetics and mock-ups.

The guide is available as a pocket-sized booklet from the Vitro Sample Order & Literature Fulfillment Center and as a downloadable PDF on vitroglazings.com.

Nathan McKenna, manager, marketing and innovation, Vitro Architectural Glass, said the recent updates are based on Vitro Glass’s experience working with architects on glass projects and specifications. “As architecture constantly transforms, glass design best practices also evolve,” he explained. “Our latest Glass Design Handbook was revised to equip design professionals with up-to-date technical guidelines, help them avoid common glass design pitfalls and make the most of their glass selections.”
