Sponsored Link: AGA Announces Availability of 2009 Edition of the Source®
June 11, 2010

The Americas Glass Association (AGA) announced that the 2009 edition of the Source® is available for immediate shipping. Sold exclusively through the AGA, the Source provides an easy-to-understand interpretation of the 2009 International Building Code (IBC) and includes helpful artwork and drawings included.

According to information from the AGA, the California Contractor State License Board includes the Source on its list of exam study guides resources and it is supported by the International Code Council.

The author, Donn Harter president and technical director for California/Americas Glass Association has 59 years of experience in the glazing trade and in 1967 he did the first interpretive drawing of a "glass dividing member" for the Los Angeles County Building Department. Shortly thereafter, the International Building Code Conference (ICBO) (producers of the Uniform Building Code®) contacted Harter to seek his services in interpreting confusing portions of the glazing codes. This resulted in the development of the Source as an interpretation of the safety glazing codes and standards.

In the ensuing years, Harter with the aid of the California Glass Association and the AGA formed the Glazing Industry Codes Association and the Fire and Safety Glazing Association.
