NGA asked its Annual Conference 2020 attendees what we as an industry need to pay attention to in this new decade.

Here are some of the insights:   

  • The industry needs to continue progress on energy-saving advantages of glass, including triple glazing. 
  • We need to stay vigilant on development of energy efficiency codes, environmental laws and sustainability.  
  • The glazing industry needs to work to make smart glass and energy efficient glass more affordable and educate architect and building owners on their benefits. 
  • We should focus on how to best communicate between the different trades and streamline product selection. 
  • We must tackle environmental issues such as bird safety and recycling of glass and glazing products.  
  • We need to ensure window to wall ratios are protected and promote the benefits of glass in the building envelope.  
  • We must advocate for utilizing glass in building facades as well as interiors.
