Releases Suggested Procedures for Dealing with Broken Glass
The Glass Association of North America (GANA) has released the
eleventh and latest in a series of Glass Information Bulletins aimed
at providing technical information and education to consumers and
the architectural fenestration industry.
The newest bulletin, Suggested Procedures for Dealing with Broken
Glass, focuses on the importance of safety considerations and prompt
glass replacement in the event of breakage.
"Breakage of architectural glass can occur for a number of
reasons and in each case creates conditions that pose a risk of
injury and property damage," explained Greg Carney, GANA technical
director. "The bulletin explains that even if broken glass
remains in the opening, there has been a reduction of strength and
immediate replacement is needed."
Suggested Procedures for Dealing with Broken Glass, as well as other
GANA Glass Informational Bulletins, may be downloaded free of charge
