May 26, 2009
The Glass Association of North America (GANA) has released its
23rd Glass Informational Bulletin (GIB). Titled Blast Mitigating
Glazing, the GIB looks at various tests and standards in the
industry for laminated glazing applications constructed to mitigate
the hazards of a blast or explosion outside of a building incorporating
"The GANA Protective Glazing Committee created this document
to help the industry understand testing and performance requirements
that have been set for blast resistant glazing," said Valerie
Block of DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions and chair of the committee.
"The Blast Mitigating Glazing informational bulletin
is a good place to start for architects, building owners or fabricators
interested in learning the basics around blast resistant glazing."
