PGC July Webinar on Tornado Protection Draws
July 13, 2009
The Protective Glazing Council (PGC) International's next monthly
webinar on impact protection for homes and buildings in tornado-prone
areas is drawing interest from a variety of companies and firms
in the architectural and construction industries. The webinar, part
of a series for architects, building owners, specifiers, glazing
contractors and others in the architectural community, will be given
by Valerie Block, senior marketing specialist for DuPont Glass Laminating
Solutions, who has more than 25 years of experience in the glass
Tornado-prone areas face unique threats associated with these severe
storm events. High wind shelters offer homeowners a means of personal
protection and impact resistant glazing helps to mitigate the potential
damage from flying debris. The benefits associated with impact resistant
glazing can also protect commercial buildings from windborne damage.
"Block is considered a true expert in the glass industry,"
says Brian Pitman, director of marketing and communications for
the PGC. "It doesn't surprise me that this presentation is
drawing such tremendous interest. With tornado protection and damage
in the news with items such as Greensburg, Kan., rebuilding from
nearly complete devastation to the first city in the United States
striving for LEED Platinum certification, the various industries
are interested in learning methods to increase protection."
Block's presentation will take place at noon EDT, July 31.
