GANA Releases New Marking and Labeling Glass Informational
The Glass Association of North America (GANA) has released the thirteenth
and latest in a series of Glass Information Bulletins aimed at providing
technical information and education to the architectural fenestration
industry. The newest bulletin, Marking and Labeling of Architectural
Laminated Glass, provides guidance and clarity to the various permanent
marks or manufacturers designations currently being applied and/or
require for the glazing infill of a fenestration assembly.
"The purpose of this Glass Information Bulletin is to serve
as an overview of the marking and labeling practices in use today
for architectural laminated glass," explained Pete Anderson
of Viracon and chairman of the group responsible for the Bulletin.
"With the expanded use of laminated glass in different applications,
including safety glazing, bomb blast and hurricane protection, different
marking requirements exist and can be confusing because there is
not a single entity that dictates the labeling requirements for
all these different applications."
Marking and Labeling of Architectural Laminated Glass, as well as
other GANA Glass Informational Bulletins, may be downloaded free
of charge from GANA's website at www.glasswebsite.com.
