The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) has recently
released a new technical publication, the TM-3000(90)-04: North
American Glazing Guidelines For Sealed Insulating Glass Units
For Commercial and Residential Use. Advisory guidelines to assist
members in achieving long-term performance of sealed insulating
glass units, the publication is intended for use by those who
design, specify, manufacture and install insulating glass units
and have been developed in accordance with IGMA quality control
and due process procedures.
According to an IGMA news release, the guidelines were written
as a result of open discussions and review by the IGMA Glazing
Guildelines Task Group and are not a specification, but should
assist in the successful glazing performance of sealed insulating
glass units. Further stated by the Alliance, the guidelines are
not intended to exclude other possible glazing practices but reflect
IGMA guidelines that have been associated over the years with
successful field performance of sealed insulating glass units.
