GANA Mirror Division Releases New Mirror Guide

The Glass Association of North America's (GANA) mirror division has released an updated guide for proper handling and maintenance of mirror. Titled Mirrors: Handle with Extreme Care, the document was previously published in the mid 1990s by the former North American Association of Mirror Manufacturers (NAAMM), which consolidated into GANA in 2000.

In updating the document, the mirror division's objective was to educate others on the proper methods to preserve the integrity and beauty of mirrors, while also prolonging their usefulness. The publication also provides the latest available information on proper procedures for storage, handling, fabrication, shipping, installation and cleaning.

"The previous version of Mirrors: Handle with Extreme Care published by NAAMM was well received and still often requested," said Drew Mayberry, GANA mirror division chairperson. "We looked at the guide and realized that much of the information in it needed to be updated to address the changes in the industry and mirror technology in the past decade. Our division hopes that the revision of the document will do a better job in trying to inform glass dealers, distributors and installers about mirror and the unique care required when dealing with this product."

Mirrors: Handle with Extreme Care can be downloaded at no charge from the GANA mirror division website,
