Mirror Division Releases New Video
The Glass Association of North America (GANA) Mirror Division has
unveiled a new, six-minute online video, which explains how flat
glass mirrors are made. The video shows the manufacturing process
from the moment flat glass is placed on the line, through the silvering
process, to further fabrication and shipping.
"One of the questions we are asked the most is how mirror is made,"
explained Brian Pitman, GANA director of marketing and communications.
"The technical process behind the magic of mirrors is shown in a
concise way which envelops the various differences between manufacturers."
The GANA Mirror Division began work on the video more than a year
ago, with initial scripting beginning after the 2004 GANA Fall Conference
in Nashville. After the script worked its way through proposed revisions
by the Mirror Division Promotions Committee, filming was done in
Florida last summer in two different locations. After final editing,
the video was approved at the Mirror Division meeting at Glass Week
in January 2006. The video was produced internally by GANA's management
"By producing the video in-house, we were able to provide a quality
product for the industry while keeping the costs to an absolute
minimum," explained Pitman.
The Mirror Division also approved the sale of the video on DVD
for $20. Schools and educational institutions are seen as the most
likely customer. You may purchase the DVD on the GANA Publications
page of its website. To view the video online at no charge, visit
