to Provide Resources to WIndow Cleaners
September 3, 2009
Window washers should be prepared for a number of new glass resources
that may be coming their way.
Greg Carney, technical director of the Glass Association of North
America (GANA), noted during the GANA Tempering Division Construction
Subcommittee that GANA continues to communicate with the International
Window Cleaning Association (IWCA). Carney added, Id
say our discussions today are in a positive light. This topic
was once again under discussion during GANAs Fall Conference,
taking place this week at the Embassy Suites in Kansas City, Mo.

Carney noted that the IWCA has formed a task group for the sole
purpose of meeting with GANA to talk about the issues at hand. This
spring, Carney met with IWCA representatives and discussed several
potential joint activities. Among those activities were: potentially
developing a glass information bulletin (GIB) on best practices
for fabricating heat strengthened and fully tempered glass; developing
requirements for recommended window cleaning program; evaluating
alternative cleaning methods jointly; updating the GANA glass cleaning
documents to differentiate between using scrapers and using a small
razor blade upon glass.
Id like to see us have the first conference call to talk
about these issues, Carney commented to the division members,
who seemed to agree on this point.
The GANA Fall Conference continues through this afternoon. Stay
